Bewdley couple celebrate 72 years
7:20am Saturday 17th August 2013 in News
A BEWDLEY couple who were married during the Second World War have celebrated their 72nd wedding anniversary.
Rose and Bill Rook, who are both 93, celebrated their anniversary at Summerdyne Nursing Home, in Bewdley, on Monday last week.
Mrs Rook is a resident at the home and Mr Rook, who lives in Wribbenhall, regularly visits his wife.
The couple met in 1936 when they were 16. They had their first date at the Central Cinema in Kidderminster and got married at the age of 21 at St Michael’s Church in Stourport.
They had a white wedding but only have a few photographs of the day due to a lack of resources and finances during the Second World War.
The couple have one daughter, Anne, three grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
Mr Rook said: “We used to do everything together.”
Kelly Hurst, spokeswoman for Summerdyne, said: “They are the nicest, most romantic couple you could ever know.”
