Michigan husband and wife married 70 years die just 20 minutes apart

A Michigan couple who family members say did everything together for 70 years up to their final breaths — died 20 minutes apart in the same hospice care.

This photo provided by Leah Smith shows Les and Freda Austin of Jackson, Michigan posing for a photo at a birthday party in June 2019.
Les and Freda Austin, both 90, from Jackson both entered hospice Dec. 6 and were in beds side by side when they died the following day, MLive.com reported.

The couple met in high school. Their first date was prom and they married in 1949. Their funeral service will be Tuesday in Mason, near Lansing, Michigan.

They did everything together. They didn’t stop with death, their daughter, Sandy Maes, told the newspaper.
I think they knew each other was passing and they are eternally together. And I think it was beautiful.

The couple’s son, Michael Austin, added: 

If they had to go, this way was about as romantic as you could get.

Les and Freda celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary in November.
