Batavia couple were inseparable for 60 years, right to their final days

posted by Howard B. Owens in batavia.

Batavia residents Ed and Floreen Hale were married for 60 years and for all those years, according to family members, they were inseparable.

A week ago, they spent their final hours together in the same room at UMMC. Mrs. Hale died Feb. 7. Mr. Hale passed the next day.

“He was a gentleman right up to the end, waiting for her to go first,” said the couple’s daughter Renee Hirsch.

My wife and I Knew Floreen @ St. Jerome's where she was a switchboard operator f, wonderful woman, wonderful couple. They both touched a lot of people. It was always nice to see them pop up in a local restaurant. They will be missed by many, many people.

Rest in Peace Floreen and Ed.
God has a special place for you in Heaven. This is how marriage is supposed to be.

Renee, Ricky and your families:
May the wonderful memories you have help to comfort you now and always.
