The Sacrament of Marriage



Many  have been touched by the story in The Zaneville Times Recorder of Kenneth and Helen Felumlee who passed away recently within hours of each other after 70 years of marriage

Helen Felumlee, of Nashport, Ohio, died aged 92 on April 12. Her husband, 91-year-old Kenneth Felumlee, died the next morning.

The couple's eight children say the two had been inseparable since meeting as teenagers, once sharing the bottom of a bunk bed on a ferry rather than sleeping one night apart, the  Recorder reported.

They were introduced when they were just 18 and 19. They immediately hit it off, dating for three years before deciding to elope.

They had  eight children, no easy task, but the couple was determined to make it work. Both Helen and Kenneth had grown up working, and they were not afraid to put in the extra effort.
