Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : December 17th 2008
MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, December 18, 2008 7 NEWS www.innerwestweekly.com.au Old-fashioned success story FIONA BRADY Kevin and Faye King, of Five Dock, celebrate their 65th wedding anniversary and on their wedding day (above). Main picture: PHIL BLATCH ~PP226963 THEIRS is an old-fashioned love story. He chose her name from a list of girls who wanted penfriends back in 1938. They met for the first time on New Year's Day, 1940, and married three years later while he was home on leave from New Guinea during the war. She waited three years for him to come home for good. Now six children, 12 grand- children and 10 great- grandchildren later, Five Dock couple Kevin and Faye King are celebrating 65 years of happy marriage. Asked if it was love at first sight when they met all those years ago, Mrs King said: ''I don't know about love, but we must have liked each other.'' After coming home from New Guinea where he had to walk the Kokoda Track three times, Mr King worked in some of Sydney's long vanished family department stores. He once got the sack when he took an extra week's holiday to look after his wife when she was sick. ''Faye was an absolutely ideal mother,'' her husband said. Sadly the couple have known more than their fair share of tragedy. In 1975, their daughter Annette fell off a motorbike and was severely brain damaged. She has lived in a nursing home since and the couple have visited her every day for the past 33 years. ''Sometimes we'll talk to her and she's listening and understands I'm sure,'' Mrs King said. Daughter Michelle Hyde de- scribed her parents' story as ''heart-warming''. ''They are long-term battlers who have done the best they could for their big brood over the years,'' she said. The couple still go for dinner dates together most Fridays, usually to Five Dock RSL. Having been together for a life- time, it's not surprising that they agree on how to keep a marriage strong. ''Working together,'' they said in unison.
