Eric and Dorothy Worsdell of Spring Hill recently celebrated their 68th anniversary. They were married May 1, 1943, at Immaculate Conception Church in Truro, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Mr. Worsdell served with the Royal Air Force from 1939 to 1946 in England, France and Canada. He was a fitter/armorer in charge of the repair squadron armory and a senior noncommissioned officer of the Bomber Command.

The couple moved to New York in March 1948. Mr. Worsdell worked for Crosby-Ashton Valve Co. in Massachusetts for 22 years. He studied at the Franklin Technical Institute, Boston University and Northeastern University, where he received a quality control certificate and a bachelor's degree in business administration. In 1970, he opened his own real estate office, which he closed when they moved to Spring Hill in 1986.

Mrs. Worsdell has been a writer most of her life, and authored the book Forever Bluebirds in 2007.

The couple are members of St. Frances Cabrini Catholic Church in Spring Hill.

To celebrate their anniversary, which also is Mr. Worsdell's birthday, the couple gathered with family and friends at their home.

The Worsdells have three children: Diane Aloi, Eric Worsdell and Carol Worsdell. They have three grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
