Long time North Ryde residents Lorraine and Keith Stewart (pictured) will celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary next week.

The couple’s ‘love at first sight’ encounter at a Gladesville dance in 1953 led to their marriage four years later on November 16, 1957.

Keith and TWT Managing Editor John Booth spent many years together in the First Ryde Scouts. The couple have lived in North Ryde for 54 years. The only ingredient they revealed in their ‘secret sauce’ for marriage longevity was: “We put up with each other.”
