LONG BEACH, CALIF.A Southern California husband and wife who were born on the same day and celebrated their 75th wedding anniversary last year have died just a day apart.
The couples son Les Brown told the Long Beach Press-Telegram on Thursday that 94-year-old Helen Brown died July 16 and 94-year-old Les Brown died July 17.
She had stomach cancer. He had Parkinsons disease.
The Browns were born on New Years Eve, 1918.
Their son said his parents met in high school and eloped in 1937 at age 18 because their parents thought the marriage between a wealthy man and a working-class woman would never last.
The couple moved to Long Beach in 1963. He was a photographer, she sold real estate.
Theyll have a joint memorial service Saturday
