Couple of 77 Years Buried in the Same Casket after Dying Hours Apart

Raymond and Velva Breuer, who had been married for 77 years, died within hours of each other and have been laid to rest in the same casket.

Raymond, 97, went first, with his wife holding his hand. Velva, 96, followed him some 30 hours later at the Boone Landing Retirement Community in Columbia, Mo.

Raymond had joked with the medical staff in the days before he died, saying he and his beloved might as well be placed in one coffin.

“Dad told one of the nurses before he passed, that if they went close together, that they should just be buried together in the same casket, son Bobby Breuer told the Columbia Daily Tribune.

Raymond and Velva attended the same one-room schoolhouse. In the fourth grade, he made a lasting impression when he jabbed her with a hot poker from the school fireplace and left a scar.

“She married me to get even with me,” he told a reporter earlier this year at a party for the couple’s 77th anniversary.

They had four sons and two daughters, 18 grandkids and family members were unable to come up with an accurate count for the many great-grandchildren and great-great grandchildren.
