A MENTONE couple are getting ready to celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary.
Sandra and Bob Jackson were married on 23 March 1963, in Bendigo. They will mark six decades of marriage next week.
Sandra Jackson said her wedding was a “beautiful day in a dear church”.
“It was all lovely, and then we went to Queensland on our honeymoon,” she said. “We have been very lucky, and had a lovely life together.”
Bob Jackson went on to work at the Aeronautical Research Laboratories at Fisherman’s Bend. Sandra Jackson worked as a teacher for 45 years and taught at Mentone Girls’ Grammar School.
Bob and Sandra share two children – Tim and Sally. They also have two grandchildren.
