He then worked part time for 10 years in a variety of jobs.
Mrs Smith stayed at home with the couple’s five children until they went to school and then worked part time doing textile and cleaning jobs, retiring as a domestic from Huddersfield Royal Infirmary.
The couple have a son, four daughters, 13 grandchildren and four great grandchildren.
They celebrated with a family party at Broad Oak Bowling Club, Linthwaite.
They are taking a two-week Caribbean cruise as part of their celebrations.
