Dorothy (L) and Lorne Antonette of Kincardine celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary in fine style, enjoying lunch at Jean's Family Restaurant Thursday afternoon
Lorne and Dorothy Antonette of Kincardine were surprised by the balloons and best wishes Thursday afternoon at Jean's Family Restaurant as they celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary.
Dorothy is from England and Lorne hails from Guelph, but they met in Toronto.
"We were neighbours," says Dorothy. "We lived across the street from each other."
"I chased her for five years before she agreed to marry me," jokes Lorne.
They were married in Toronto and Lorne was a foreman for the railroad but was looking for another job.
In 1963, he was hired by Ontario Hydro and the couple moved to Deep River. A year later, they were living in Port Elgin but in 1967, they decided to move to a farm near Inverhuron where they lived for 20 years before moving to Kincardine in 1987.
They are regular customers at Jean's in Kincardine where owners Harold and Lynda Maurer welcomed them Thursday with fancy balloons, and everyone in the restaurant wished them a Happy 60th Wedding Anniversary.
Lorne and Dorothy were planning to have dinner Thursday night at the Best Western Plus Governor's Inn.
