The couple got dementia and George suffered a stroke a few months ago.
They were beside each other holding hands surrounded by their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren when George died at 8:48 p.m. July 5. Hours later, Ora Lee died at 12:08 a.m. July 6.
They were 78 years old.
"My mother would always say that she was going to take my father or vice versa, and it did happen. We didn't think it would, but it did," daughter Georgia Perez told WOAI.
