67 years for Joy and John

Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Front Page - BY ROBERT MUIR

Love and won­der­ful fam­ily were the rea­sons stated by John Dun­stan for 67 years of mar­riage to wife Joy last Satur­day, April 7.

It was April 7, 1951 when the happy cou­ple tied the knot at All Saints Church in Bal­larat.

“It’s pretty good!” Allawah Hos­tel res­i­dent Joy com­mented about their near seven decades of mar­riage. “It’s won­der­ful!” John, who still en­joys a round of golf, added.

A long-re­tired elec­tri­cal en­gi­neer, John served Aus­tralia with the RAAF in World War 2 as an elect/fit­ter gun­ner. He and Joy moved to Yar­ra­wonga in 1999.

The Dun­stans are both 95-years-of-age, with Joy two months older than her hus­band, hav­ing been born on Christ­mas Eve and John in Feb­ru­ary.

The Allawah Hos­tel staff made sure it was a lovely mile­stone day for their spe­cial res­i­dent and her hus­band, with flow­ers, cup­pas and cake.
