A married couple who emigrated from Ukraine more than two decades ago died of the coronavirus only hours apart over the weekend.

Feliks Ogorodnik, 88, and his wife, Luiza, 84, died Saturday at Glenbrook Hospital in suburban Glenview, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
They both died of pneumonia with COVID-19 and other preexisting conditions as contributing factors. They are the first married couple that officials in Illinois have identified as succumbing to the coronavirus.
The Skokie couple leaves behind two daughters and four grandchildren. The couple moved from Ukraine to the United States more than 20 years ago.
