Twiners celebrate 67th anniversary
Patonga residents, Mr John and Ms Shirley Twiner, celebrated their 67th wedding anniversary on March 25.
John and Shirley's first date was to the cinema, back in 1947.
Three years later, they got married at St Pauls Church in Bankstown.
The Twiners lived happily in Yagoona where they raised their two daughters, Carol and Wendy.
On retirement, they moved to Patonga, where they still reside.
John is a World War II veteran who was stationed on the Indonesian island of Moratai and worked for Qantas before retirement.
Shirley, aged 86, ran her own dance studio which has continued to be run by her two daughters, known as the Twiner-Anderson School of Dance, located in Campbelltown.
John has been awarded the Australia Day Citizen of the Year award and the Bicentennial Commemorative Medal for his continuous work with Rowe Street Musicals since 1972, now known as the Ashfield Musical Society.
John still remains the president of the society and both Shirley and himself are both committee and life members of the AMS.
John and Shirley have four grandsons, a granddaughter and six great grandchildren together.
The Twiners have enjoyed taking annual holidays overseas and will be celebrating their 67th wedding anniversary by planning yet another overseas holiday.
