Wife who shared longest-married couple fame dies

Theresa Faiss, recognized with her husband as being the longest married couple in America, has died in Las Vegas at the age of 97.

She and former state Sen. Wilbur Faiss, were honored in January by the Worldwide Marriage Encounter as being the longest-married couple for 2012. They were married for 79 years.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports Theresa Faiss died Sunday. Private services are planned.

Wilbur Faiss, who served in the Senate between 1976 and 1984, is 101 and the oldest living former Nevada state legislator.

Earlier this year, President Barack Obama had planned to give the couple a public acknowledgement during a campaign appearance in southern Nevada, but they were unable to attend.

Family members say the Faisses met the president during a later visit.
