Couple Married for 63 Years Die Just 20 Minutes Apart

Henry and Jeanette De Lange died 20 minutes apart in the same room at a nursing home in Platte, South Dakota,  on July 31, KSFY reported.

Their son,  Lee De Lange, told the station that Jeanette, 87, died first at 5:10 p.m. “She passed away very, very peacefully. Incredibly peacefully, ” Lee said of his mother. 20 minutes later at 5:30 p.m., her longtime husband, Henry, died.

According to KSFY, their children said he briefly opened his eyes and looked at his wife before his death.

“[A sibling] said ‘the time was 5:10 p.m., and 5:30 p.m. and look at the clock’. So I looked at the clock and it said 5:30. That’s odd. I looked at the watch on my wrist, it said 5:55 p.m. It stopped at 5:30, the exact time dad passed away, ” Lee said, “We can’t explain how the battery-operated clock on the wall stopped at that exact time.”

The son told KSFY “We’re calling it a beautiful act of God’s providential love and mercy. You don’t pray for it because it seems mean, but you couldn’t ask for anything more beautiful.”
