By JODEAL CADACIO A positive outlook on life and a sense of humour have spelled 70 years of wedded bliss for Maurice and Leonie Gibson. The couple celebrated the milestone with a family get-together at Milford's Lady Allum Village where they live. The couple were mar- ried at the Sacred Heart Church in Hastings on October 20, 1940 and have seven children. Four reside in Australia and three live in New Zealand. They have 12 grand- children and seven great grandchildren. They first met at a dance in Haumoana near Hastings and knew then they were destined to be together. Mr and Mrs Gibson spent the early years of their marriage living in Kaikoura before moving up to Napier where they lived for about 48 years. In their twilight years they moved to the North Shore, where they have been for the past 15 years. Daughter Michelle Gibson says their mum and dad have had a won- derful marriage through trials and tribulations as all couples do. They have been devoted to one another for 70 years. They have been the best of parents and supported their children with love and dedi- cation,'' she says. Mr Gibson was in the news when he had two parachute jumps -- first attheageof90andin 2009 at the age of 95, raising money for children's cancer. He said he'll do it again if he gets to 100. Miss Gibson says her parents' great attitude to life and an absolutely wonderful sense of humour'' have contri- buted to their longevity. And long may it con- tinue,'' she says.
