Being married for 71 years, the aged spouses departed this life on the same day

The loving spouses passed away with a difference of twelve hours.

Herbert and Marilyn Delagle were spouses for 71 years and they breathed their last on the same day with a difference of twelve hours.

They met in a cafe in the American city of Waynesboro. At that time, Herbert was 22, and Francis was 16.

Then, Herbert visited the facility where Francis worked in order to meet her.

At some point, he plucked up the bravery to ask the girl out on a date to the regional cinema.

After a year, the young man asked for her hand in marriage.

“I asked her if she was ready to marry me and she gave her approval.”

In the meantime, their wedding is almost canceled because of the fact that they are an hour late to church. Francis later said during an interview that Herbert was late all the time.

Herbert 94 and Marilyn 88, departed this life on the same day. The loving spouses passed away with a difference of twelve hours. The first died husband early on Friday morning. Twelve hours later, his wife followed him. Perhaps she was a prey of broken heart syndrome, which takes place when an elderly person cannot hold the pain of losing a spouse and also dies.

They had six offspring, 16 grandkids, 25 great-grandkids as well as three great-great-grandkids.
