A Naperville family is mourning the loss of a couple married more than 70 years that died within two days of each other after battling COVID-19.

Harilal Thakkar, 90, and his wife, Padmaben, 87, were married for 71 years and passed away earlier this week.

“My grandparents were humble. They were selfless,” said granddaughter Julie Thakkar, whom they helped raise. “They were a power couple and they went out of their way to help others.”
