On their 60th wedding anniversary they say that they remember their 50th as though it was yesterday and Charles and Lydia Myers are one of the happiest and sprightliest couples around. Their sense of fun was evident as they celebrated with friends and family a milestone in their lives.
They celebrated at 156 North Road, where they have lived for 47 years. Lydia Jane Cunningham was born at Centre Bush and was a bride at 19 years of age. Charles Myers was born in Waikiwi and worked for his father at his brickworks. The couple were wed on June 16th 1916 at All Saints Church in Gladstone. At that time Charles was going into camp and six weeks later left his war bride to go overseas.
He came back from overseas after two years and was employed at R. G. Speirs as a 'tinsmith', for 39 years and only retired a 9 years ago - reluctantly we might add.
Charles and Lydia had three sons and lost two of them in World War II, and the one remaining son, Ian lives in Timaru with his wife and children, who entertained their grandparents with singing, playing the piano and guitar items.
Charles and Lydia have been stalwarts of the All Saints for 37 years.
Church work and the Mothers Union have been the passion of Lydia's and a special thanksgiving was given at the church for them.
Charles and Lydia love gardening and reading and still find plenty to do without having to watch television.
