Margaret and Don
Margaret was suffering from cancer while Don was fighting to breathe due to medical complications. They went to the hospital and were placed on different floors. Their daughter, Pattie, fought with doctors for months when they finally agreed to let the couple be together in one room.
After 59 years of marriage, Margaret and Don passed way together holding hands. The couple – inseparable since the day they met – spent their last few days holding hands, side by side in a single hospital room. They passed away within hours of each other.
Beaver remembers sitting at her father’s bedside and being in awe when he said of his wife, “When we get to heaven, we can walk in together, just like we’re getting married again. Another honeymoon.”
