Couple married for 67 years die hours apart from each other
A couple in Kansas that had been married for 67 years, died just hours apart from each other.
Arnita Yingling died first in her sleep on Saturday at the family home at age 93, and just six hours later her husband Lyle, 95, died at a nearby nursing home.
Their funeral was held today and their remaining family described the couple as inseparable and are not surprised one couldn't live without the other.
The Yinglings were married in 1941. Both were born on northeast Kansas farms and were active in Troy as members of their church and civic organizations.
