WHEN Sandra Williams and John Kortholt went to a dance in their youth, they might not have known how their lives would change forever.
Sandra Williams was born in Chelsea in 1943. John Kortholt was born in Holland in 1937 and emigrated when he was 14. The two met at the dance and soon fell in love.
The happy couple celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary with family and friends last week.
The couple married at Edithvale Methodist Church on 3 November 1962. They went on to buy a home on Lochiel Avenue and have lived in Edithvale ever since.
Sandra and John share two children, Paul and Amanda. They have four grandchildren – Ashleigh, Chris, Oliver, and Harry – and two great-grandchildren – Thomas and Charlie.
