Romeo and Juliet? Couples dies on same day after 61 years of marriage

"I think Mum decided he wasn't coming
back. She died at 10am, and I got a
message to Dad. He followed her about nine
hours later," she said.
Their love story started when Peter moved
to Wellington in New Zealand. It was there
where he met the woman he’d spend the
rest of his life with.
Bedford described her father as a rural man
and her mom as an intellectual woman,
who later went on to become a law clerk.
Despite having their differences, the two
enjoyed the simple things in life together,
such as music and going to concerts.
"Mum had a philosophical, intellectual brain
and she loved to debate. And Dad was a big
thinker too.", she explained, adding her late
parents loved animals and gardening.
According to reports, the couple was very
loved in the Kaikohe community located in
New Zealand, where they resided since
1980.
Prior to moving to the community, the
family lived in the rural areas of Manawatu.
"They were very rural people. Well, Dad was.
Mum liked the arts and socialising," she
said, adding, "They were both fiercely
independent. But very kind and helpful,
especially in their community.”
The couple left behind their three children-
Michael, Simon and Caroline, and two
grandchildren.
"My Grandad didn't speak much, but when
he spoke people listened.", said Bedford’s
31-year-old daughter, Cadence.
