Ohio couple married 70 years die 15 hours apart

Posted: Updated:
NASHPORT, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio couple who held hands at breakfast every morning even after 70 years of marriage have died 15 hours apart.

Helen Felumlee of Nashport in central Ohio died April 12. She was 92. Her husband, 91-year-old Kenneth Felumlee, died April 13.

The couple's children say the two met as teenagers and had been inseparable since then.

The Zanesville Times Recorder reports that the pair married Feb. 20, 1944, and raised eight children.

Their daughter, Linda Cody, says the two were deeply in love to the end.

Cody says her father began to fade about 12 hours after her mother died and told them that he didn't want to leave her by herself.

She says, "We knew when one went, the other was going to go."
