High School Sweethearts Who Were Married For 58 Years, Die Beside Each Other, Holding Hands

Two high school sweethearts who were married for 58 years - died this week together (pictured above side-by-side at the hospital). George and Ora Lee Rodriguez died holding hands, three hours apart - in a hospital in San Antonio. The old lovers had been diagnosed with dementia. George first suffered a stroke and died in his sleep – while Ora Lee passed on three hours later next to him. They died a week after celebrating their 58th wedding anniversary. They were surrounded by their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Sharing the emotional picture on social media, the couple’s daughter Corina Martinez wrote: "I just can’t believe something like this would ever happen, you hear this on the movies … like The Notebook. We had them here at the house, in their hospital beds, right beside each other. They were holding hands."


  1. May their souls rest in peace

  2. Awwwwh hope they see in the life after.
