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

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.
