Gordon And Norma Yeager, A MARRIED couple has died – just one hour apart – while holding hands after being together for 72 years.
Family said the story of Gordon, 94, and Norma Yeager, 90, of Iowa is a real-life love story.
On the day she graduated from high school, Norma Stock said yes to Gordon Yeager’s marriage proposal. The couple got married on May 26, 1939.
“They’re very old-fashioned. They believed in marriage til death do you part,” said son Dennis Yeager.
Dennis Yeager was the youngest of four children born to the couple. His sister Donna was first born.
“Staying together for 72 years is good, I’d say that’s exceptional,” said daughter Donna Sheets.
Norma didn’t really want the distance, and family said she hardly left Gordon’s side for 72 years. (Daily Telegraph
