Long time West Ryde residents John and Dorothy Brown (pictured) celebrated their Golden Wedding anniversary last week with family and friends.
It was a double celebration for the couple with John also chalking up his 80th birthday. Though coming from the country, Dorothy lived in Hunters Hill and John in Annandale until they met and later married on January 8, 1966 in Christ Church Gladesville.
The couple resided in Russell Lea before settling in West Ryde in 1982. John was employed by the Forestry Commission and was a long time member of the Band of the Ambulance Service of NSW. Dorothy is a foundation member of the Ryde District Historical Society’s Family History Group.
