Minnesota couple, married 68 years, dies just 1 day apart

Hands with engagement rings

ST. PETER, Minn. (AP) -- Bob and Corrine Johnson got married as teens in southern Minnesota's farm country and lived together for 68 years.

They were to be laid to rest Tuesday -- after dying 33 hours apart.

One of their seven children, Dr. Bruce Johnson, says his father went downhill as soon as his mother died Nov. 24 and passed the next day. He says it's hard to imagine it was a coincidence.
