Couple together for 63 years dies together

SPANISH FORK, Utah (AP) — A Utah couple who lived 63 years together died within hours of each other last week.
The Deseret News reports that Jerry and Edith Dunn of Spanish Fork were born in 1931 and since high school rarely spent any time apart.
Jerry Dunn died in his sleep early Thursday. Edith Dunn took her last breath hours later.
They were buried in a simple graveside ceremony Friday. Jerry Dunn, a member of the American Legion, was given full military honors. The retired U.S. Postal Service mail carrier was a Korea and Vietnam war veteran.
No cause of death was released. Family members tell the newspaper that Jerry Dunn knew the end of his life was near, wasn’t afraid of dying and went first to lead the way for his ailing wife.
Police Lt. Matt Johnson says family members were attending the couple when they died of natural causes and that attending doctors signed the death certificates.
