Wenadens celebrate Golden Wedding Anniversay
OBU Sydney, AustrlaiaWenadens celebrate Golden Wedding Anniversary
A notion held by many from early days was that Benedictines usually wooed and wed Shepherdian girls. Plausible enough, because Kotahena’s Good Shepherd Convent, as they were fond of saying, was a mere kissing distance from St Benedict’s College. When Old Ben from Sydney (Australia) Roger Wenaden and his wife Ophelia (yes, formerly of Good Shepherd Convent) reached the rare milestone of their Golden Wedding Anniversary on 7 June, did they add just a dash of credibility to these long held notions? So it seems.
As Roger told the numerous friends and relations present, including son Kevin and his wife Samantha, and, of course, their precious grand daughters Madison and Chelsea, at the celebratory function held on 9 June at the Hills Lodge in Castle Hill, Ophelia was just another neighbour who lived on the same street as he, until suddenly, one day, he saw her in a new light. That’s the girl for me, he said to all and sundry. There was no doubt about that, because Roger dedicated the romantic evening of his anniversary as a wonderful tribute to his loving wife of 50 years, a gesture that was appreciated by all the guests and talked about for weeks after the event.
Roger and Ophelia were married at All Saints Church in Borella in 1962.
