'Everything we did, we did it together': St. John's couple celebrates 70th anniversary

A couple originally from St. John's celebrated an anniversary milestone very few people get to reach: 70 years of marital bliss. 

Harrison and Susie Noseworthy, who now live near their daughter just outside Ottawa, were surrounded by a few friends on Friday for the special day. 

"Everything we did, we did it together, except work," Susie Noseworthy told CBC. 

"We were together very much in the daytime, so we didn't have time to quarrel."

The pair were wed at Cochrane Street United Church on April 7, 1947.

The small ceremony had about 35 people in attendance, none of whom — other than the bride and groom — are still alive. 

Seventy years later, the couple celebrated with their daughter Grace Glasonbury, friends and a good feed of a traditional Jiggs Dinner. 

The food was easy, but finding a greeting card for this unique occasion certainly wasn't.

"This is a big joke with our family," she said.

"We can't find anniversary cards with happy 70th anniversary. So I think some of the family are making them."
