An elderly couple died the same day from the coronavirus. Feliks Ogorodnik and his wife Luiza died Saturday at Glenbrook Hospital in Glenview, Illinois. The loving couple died just hours apart from COVID-19. On Saturday, Feliks, 88, died after 5 p.m. and about four hours later, his wife Luiza, 84, went on to lead a better life at the same medical center, the Chicago Sun Times reports. The couple - who had other pre-existing medical conditions - died of pneumonia after catching this virus. The family assures the Chicago Tribune that they do not know how the elderly were infected with Covid-19.

"They were a beautiful couple," his son-in-law Ed Greenwald told the newspaper. "They were wonderful and loving grandparents, they were an integral part of our family." The couple leaves behind their two daughters - Irina Greenwald and Janina Schnaper - and four grandchildren.
