Idaho husband, wife of over 48 years die from virus within 5 days


REXBURG, Idaho (AP) — An Idaho couple that had been married for over 48 years died from the coronavirus within five days of each other earlier this month.

Debbie Morgan died on Dec. 15 while her husband, Craig Morgan, passed away on Dec. 20.

“They’re happy being back together,” said their daughter Kelly Romine.

Doctors had diagnosed Craig Morgan with the coronavirus on Dec. 11 and admitted him to the Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center on the same day his wife died.

Debbie Morgan had spent the last two years residing at an assisted living center while being treated for multiple sclerosis. She contracted the coronavirus in November, the Standard Journal reported.
