A couple from Shelburne Lodge care home, in High Wycombe have celebrated 70 year’s of marriage.
Ruby and Leslie Tack grew up in the same village, Holmer Green and both went to Holmer Green School and that’s where their love bloomed. Ruby and Leslie married and built a lovely life together. Leslie had a shed where he liked to do woodworking and Ruby loved Tamble beading and created beautiful bead work for wedding dresses.
When asked “What is the key to a long and happy marriage?” Ruby said “A husband that doesn’t argue!” Ruby also said “There is no point to arguing, we do everything together. We lived in the same village, went to school together and we have been together since.”
When asked the same questions Leslie said he agreed with Ruby!
Residents and team members came to together to celebrate the couple’s special anniversary. The home arranged a lovely afternoon tea, a home baked cake and a few glasses of fizz.
General Manager, Joe Patterson at Shelburne Lodge] said: “We have had such a lovely day celebrating Ruby and Leslie’s anniversary. It’s so wonderful to see two people still very much in love after all these years!”
