Anna and Leo Barron were married for 58 years and their bond was inseparable.
They did everything together, including ballroom dancing.
“Every Saturday night. My dad in the suit. My mom in the shoes. Yes, they ballroom danced for over 25 years," Linda Barron.
Later, they began suffering from Alzheimer’s dementia at the same time
And moved into an assisted living facility together.
In April, Leo was diagnosed with COVID-19. Anna tested positive In May.
Their love inspired the entire COVID unit.
“So they declined together, but their love shined through,”said Linda Barron.
Linda says even as her father battled the virus himself, he never stopped worrying about his Anna.
“He fought and fought and fought. He just kept saying, how's your mother? I love your mother. I love your mother,” said Linda Barron.
The soulmates spent their last days as they always had-- together.
As they shared a room in a hospice hospital.
Leo lost his battle with COVID-19 on May 29th.
Anna passed away on May 31st, on what would have been Leo’s birthday.
"My mom and dad had the comfort of each other, the love of each other. And their passing couldn't be more beautiful to be able to pass, lying by the person you love and the person you were married to for 58 years,” said Linda Barron.
