Worsdells of Spring Hill celebrate 69th wedding anniversary

The Worsdells

A small celebration was held May 1 in honor of the 69th wedding anniversary of Eric and Dorothy Worsdell, as well as Mr. Worsdell's 91st birthday. The party was hosted by the couple's son, Eric Patrick, at Kally K's restaurant in Spring Hill and included family members and friends.

The Worsdells of Spring Hill 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 arrived in New York Harbor in 1948 and lived many years in Foxborough, Mass. Mr. Worsdell worked for Crosby-Ashton Gauge and Valve Co. for 22 years. During that time, he was part of a team in the 1960s that worked on the blueprints for the building of the first nuclear-powered submarine in the United States, the Nautilus. He also 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 ran until the couple moved to Spring Hill in 1986.

Mrs. Worsdell, who has been a writer most of her life, wrote and directed numerous Christmas shows in Foxborough. She also authored the book Forever Bluebirds in 2007.

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