Alexander and Jeanette Toczko, an elderly couple in California that had been married for 75 years, recently passed away in each others’ arms within less than a day of each other, professing their love for each other until the very end. Their last loving embrace was documented by their bereaved daughter Aimee Toczko-Cushman.
Alexander (95) and Jeanette (95) ‘dated’ since they were 8 and married in 1940. Several weeks ago, Alexander suffered a broken hip and became bedridden. Jeanette also fell ill, so a local hospice provided them with care beds where they could lie in each others’ arms.
