60 years of marriage celebrated

Liesl Tesch with June and Neville Stewart

Point Clare residents, Neville and June Stewart, celebrated 60 years of marriage on February 6.

Member for Gosford, Liesl Tesch, visited the Stewarts to present a certificate and a bottle of champagne to celebrate the milestone.

“Recognising and celebrating marriage anniversaries is one of the pleasures of my job, and to have the opportunity to recognise a long lasting marriage like the Stewart’s is an honour,” Tesch said.

The happy couple told Tesch that they first met on a date at the Royal Easter Show which was arranged by their friends.

The date was a success, with the pair hitting it off and arranging to meet again.

Neville would visit June in Redfern while she was working as a nurse and he as a boilermaker on the South Coast.

The couple married in 1960 and together have four children.

Today the Stewarts preside over a large and growing family of 21 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren.
