Patricia, born in 1942, hailed from Jackson, Michigan, same as her spouse, Leslie, who was born in 1944. The pair got married in 1973, and everyone around them witnessed their unique and enviable love life.
Leslie, who was described as a fun-loving person, worked as a truck driver and a veteran member of the United States Navy Reserves. His wife was known as the no-nonsense registered nurse for 35 years.
The pair had different temperaments but was able to make their marriage work for almost fifty years leading up to their deaths. While alive, the duo was an inspiration to younger couples around them.
Patricia and Leslie would often go dancing at Julie’s bar in Michigan, reliving the moment they first met. Once describing the moment he met his wife, Leslie made it known that she was the most beautiful woman ever.
Soon after, doctors announced that they passed on at the same time.
The decline to their health started after they contracted the novel coronavirus, and two days before Thanksgiving, Leslie and Patricia bade the word farewell.
Doctors recorded that their death occurred at 4:23 pm, but many of their family members believed Patrica, known as Pat, passed on first. The couple’s daughter, Joanna Sisk, had mixed feelings talking about her late parents.
Sisk made it known that the development was beautiful but tragic as she likened the beloved couple to Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet.”
Sisk recalled that Patricia,78, was first diagnosed with COVID-19 and asked to self-isolate at home. However, a few weeks later, she and her husband were rushed to the hospital as they were in critical conditions.
Sisk noted that she felt the life slowly seeping out of her mom, but when she was called to check on her dad, she did not expect to see him also slowly dying. Soon after, doctors announced that they passed on at the same time.
A similar touching story was recorded in North Carolina; a couple who have been together for 50 years exited the world hand-in-hand. The phenomenal occurrence happened in September after the duo contracted COVID-19.
The married pair, Cathy Peoples and Johnny Lee Peoples, were admitted in August and treated in the same ward. A few days into September, the couple died holding hands while giving everyone a shocker.
Speaking of the occurrence, their loved ones had a message for the public; they told everyone to stay safe and extra cautious of the viral ailment. The couple is survived by three children and nine grandchildren.
