An ELLON couple have celebrated their Diamond wedding anniversary with a message of congratulations from Her Majesty the Queen.
Jim and Margaret Lourie of Ythan Place, said the secret to their marriage had been ‘give and take’. “Respect for each other does a lot”, said Margaret. “We just take it as it comes.”
“Share and share alike”, offered Jim. “We just care for eachother and don’t argue about the little things.”
The couple married at Ellon Parish Church sixty years ago. They first met while learning to dance at the town’s former Station Buffet, “And we’re still learning!”, they said.
The couple have a son and two daughters, seven grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
