Indianapolis Couple Married 67 Years Separated by COVID-19, Back Together


An Indianapolis husband and wife married for 67 years were faced with their longest ever separation – while the wife battled COVID-19.

Joyce and Don Hoffman, both 90, had been forced to separate after Joyce tested positive for the coronavirus on May 1st. She spent over a month in the COVID-19 unit at Hooverwood Living in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Then about 10 days ago… Joyce “graduated” from the coronavirus unit on June 11 and walked with a sign reading “COVID-19 Survivor”… the facility staff applauding her, as she left. Her loving husband Don was waiting for her at the end of the corridor with a bouquet of flowers.

Watch the video of their touching reu nion below... once the two were back together... you can hear Don say... to his wife, Joyce…. “You look so wonderful. You look so beautiful.”

Together again, the couple also got to celebrate Joyce’s belated 90th birthday, which happened during Joyce’s quarantine.
