Dedicated West Lothian couple celebrate diamond wedding anniversary

Kudos to devoted West Lothian couple Jim and Betty Wright, who celebrated their diamond wedding anniversary.

The couple, who are both 79, met at Whitburn Miners Welfare and got married 60 years ago at the town’s Brucefield Church.

They had three children and now have six grandchildren and six great
small children.

Prior to retiring, Jim was a forklift driver at General Motors and Betty worked as a nursing assistant at Tippethill Hospital and later at St John’s Hospital.

Their daughter Marion Frame said her father loved gardening, especially after his retirement, and her mother was an avid painter.

She said they both enjoyed going on vacation and driving and spending time with their families.

Marion said her mother moved to Crofthead Care Home in Fauldhouse about two years ago and her father continued to live in Whitburn.

She said the couple remained “devoted” to each other after all this time.

Marion said: “Before Covid, dad visited mum every day, sometimes twice a day, and we told him he had to slow down and let us visit him.

“After all this time, they were the same and devoted to each other.”

Jim and Betty enjoyed a beautiful celebration surrounded by family hosted by the staff at Crofthead Nursing Home.
