Love Conquers All
This month, Caboolture couple Ian and Robyn Wilson are celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary.
Ian and Robyn Wilson tied the knot on 13th April 1963 at St. Lukes Presbyterian Church in Liverpool, NSW, where Reverend Burke conducted the ceremony. Ian was born in England in 1945 and met Robyn just four weeks after arriving in Australia.
They got married at the age of 17 and 16 respectively. Ian was working as a shop assistant in menswear, while Robyn was employed at the Arnotts business factory. In addition to his interest in scouting and dancing, Ian spent 44 years working in the stationery industry before retiring at 69 due to several health issues related to diabetes.
Today, the couple has three sons, three daughters, 24 grandchildren, 31 great-grandchildren, and two more on the way. Ian now takes care of Robyn, who has been struggling with serious health problems. Sadly, the couple lost one of their sons in March 2020 due to diabetes complications.
Despite the challenges they have faced, Ian believes that their secret to a successful marriage is simple: caring for each other through both good and bad times, as love conquers all.
