Man Dies on Way to Wife's Funeral, Gets Buried Together

After 66 years of marriage, Gwen Hendrickson passed away in February at the age of 89. While en route to Gwen's funeral, 94-year-old Norman Hendrickson died on a sidewalk -- just steps from the funeral home. Merrilyne Hendrickson then requested that her father's body be put into a casket and placed in the viewing room with her mother's cremated remains, which had been placed in an urn. Mourners who started arriving soon after for Gwen's funeral were greeted by a note Merrilyne posted at the entrance: "Surprise — It's a double-header — Gwen and Norman Hendrickson — Feb. 16, 2013."
