Josephine “Ann” Harris, described by family as a big supporter of the president, was quite happy about Obama’s visit to Ann’s Place in Akron at 8:30 a.m.

Harris not only met the president but received a hug from him, the Akron Beacon Journal reported.

However, the 70-year-old complained of feeling tired and having a tingling sensation.

She was taken by ambulance to the hospital and was pronounced dead just after 11 a.m.

“I’m sure this was her highlight,” Frankie Adkins, Harris’ sister, told the paper. “She loved Obama.”

Obama's tour was taking him through Ohio and Pennsylvania.
