Golden weddings anniversaries – diamond weddings anniversaries

Recently I found an obituary on the Internet for William John Titheridge of Penticon, British Columbia, Canada who died on August 27 2015, just shy of his 60th wedding anniversary. Bill was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba in 1929 and died aged 86.  His obituary can be read at the following link

The fact that Bill had been married for 59 years made we wonder how many family members have celebrated their golden (50th) or diamond (60th) wedding anniversary or are Bill and wife Norma among the longest married Titheridges, Titheradges, Tidridges etc.

Within my own Meaker family my parents celebrated their diamond wedding and my grandparents celebrated their 58th Wedding Anniversary.

The challenge this week is for you to tell me family members who have been married for 50 years or more –they can be male or female Titheridges, Titheradges, Tidridges etc. If you email me the information I will start a list - better still if you can add a picture of the happy couple.

Individuals who have celebrated 50 or more years of marriage

Gladys Titheradge ( born 1913 Walthamstow  – died 2003 Walthamstow)
Gladys Sach (nee Titheradge) and Len Sach
in Washington in 1977

Gladys Titheradge (Michael’s Aunt) married Leonard Sach in August 1936.  In 1986 they celebrated their golden wedding with a large family party and then went on to celebrate a diamond wedding in 1996 and finally a 67th wedding anniversary.

Please send me the names of any other happy couples who have been married for 50+ years.
