Wagga couple, Lorraine and Michael Hickey are celebrating 60 years of marriage and six decades of their white Kelvinator refrigerator.

In 1958, the couple was gifted a new Kelvinator refrigerator on their wedding, and they still use it to this day.

“Michael and Lorraine’s daughter, Sharon got in touch with us to tell her parents’ story. We loved that their Kelvinator fridge has been with them every step of the way throughout their fantastic 60 years together,” Electrolux communications manager, Mark Goodwin said.

“The fridge is having the same celebrations as we are because it’s out in the garage and still going as good as the day we got it. It just keeps going – they don’t last that long normally, do they?” Michael told local newspaper, The Daily Advertiser.

“Sharon thought it might be fun to have a note from Electrolux to read out at the anniversary party wishing the Hickey’s and their beloved Kelvinator fridge happy anniversary. We were quite moved by the idea, so we arranged for a small gift and a personal note from our managing director for Australia and New Zealand, Kurt Hegvold, to be delivered to the couple,” Goodwin added.
