A Missouri couple who were together for sixty-five years died on January 11, 2020, a mere twenty hours apart.
The Inseparable couple, Harriet and John “Jack” Morrison spent their last moments together side-by-side at the Woodlands Nursing Home and Alternative Hospice near St. Louis, Missouri as relayed in Jack Morrison’s obituary.
The couple holding hands with each other in their beds before Jack, 86, died at 3:34 am on January 11, 2020, and his beloved wife Harriet, who was 83, died later that evening at 11:53 pm.
The couple met in 1955. Morrison was driving a family-run charter bus that Harriet happened to be on with her father and his touring drum and bugle corps.
They started dating on Halloween in 1955.
Six months after their first date Jack and Harriet were married on May 5, 1956
Jack made a living running his father’s V-K Bus Lines company while Harriet spent her days raising their two sons and Wagener.
Throughout their successful marriage, Jack and Harriet did nearly everything together, from mundane errands to cooking dinner, according to all reports. Jack would even get up before Harriet each morning to make her coffee and wait hours in the car as she went to the hairdresser.
The couple was together as much as possible throughout their 65 years long loving relationship.
