June Carter Cash.

From CNN, yesterday:

NASHVILLE, Tennessee (AP) -- June Carter Cash, a scion of a pioneering family in country music and the wife and Grammy-winning duet partner of singer Johnny Cash, died Thursday of complications from heart surgery. She was 73.

I was talking to my Mom about this today and I said,

“It says in the article ‘They married in 1968 after he proposed to her on stage in London, Ontario.’ I didn't know that.”
“We were there that night.”
“You were??”
“Yes. I figured it was for real because she cried.”

I'm not sure how I missed that story growing up.
