LANSING, Mich. (AP) - A couple married for almost 75 years died less than seven hours apart from natural causes.
Funeral services are Saturday for 95-year-olds Clyde and Mary Lee. The longtime Lansing residents died March 22 in Arizona, where they had lived the past three years.
Both were 95 and living in an assisted care facility. Their son, Bill Lee, said Mary was in failing health and was expected to soon die. But Clyde's death of a heart attack came as a shock.
Bill Lee said his father told a caregiver during the night that he didn't want to watch his wife die. His heart gave out at 5 a.m.
Mary died at 11:30 a.m.
