Connally and Johnnie Tibbs met while working at a grocery store in Waco, Texas. After they dated for a bit, they were married. The two of them led a life of laughter and love and raised their children.

One of their daughters, Cynthia Roemisch, told their story and conveyed their love for the Lord.

After nearly 70 years of marriage, both Connally and Johnnie passed away within hours of each other on June 8th, 2013.

Roemisch credits Hendrick Hospice Care for their exceptional care throughout the process.
