In an odd set of circumstances, the owner of an Akron, Ohio restaurant where President Barack Obama stopped for breakfast this morning just died of a heart attack. This occurred only hours after meeting him.
Josephine “Ann” Harris, 70 (third from the left in photo above), of Copley Township, was taken by ambulance to Akron General Medical Center after complaining of fatigue and a tingling feeling. She was pronounced dead at 11:18 a.m., according to the Summit County Medical Examiner’s Office, according to the Beacon Journal.
Frankie Adkins, Harris' sister, said:
“I’m sure this was her highlight, she loved Obama.”
Harris was extremely excited about Obama's 8:30 a.m. visit to her family's restaurant, Ann’s Place, located on South Hawkins Avenue. We pray for the family of Josephine "Ann" Harris, who are coping with her sad, bittersweet end.
