Grant Triebner and his wife Ada, an old couple in Canada, died within hours of one another after venturing out into the extreme cold, police believe after discovering their bodies.

Authorities made the discovery during a wellness check on Jan. 3, People magazine reported. They found 90-year-old Grant Triebner’s body in the couple’s barn and his 83-year-old wife’s body outside.

It’s now believed Grant Triebner died of a massive heart attack and when he did not return home, Ada Triebner braved the elements to check on her husband, then succumbed to the subzero temperatures. Police do not suspect foul play.

Grant Triebner had been a cash crop farmer and also a school bus driver before his retirement, while his wife was a school teacher, the London Free Press noted.

The couple had a son who passed away from cystic fibrosis in 1987, as well as two daughters and several grandchildren.

An obituary, which encouraged donations to Cystic Fibrosis Canada or Gideons International, noted that Grant Triebner’s “loving and supportive wife died trying to save the love of her life.”

“Two beautiful lights have ceased to shine and this world will be forever a darker place,” the notice said.

There have been at least a dozen reported deaths due to the freezing temperatures that have gripped the U.S. since last week, The Independent reported, and it is not just humans that are being affected by the brutal cold.

The Express reported that several dogs left outdoors had frozen to death in the past few days, while wild animals were also dropping by the dozens.

According to the report, migratory sharks had been found frozen stiff on beaches while images have emerged showing Florida’s cold-blooded green iguanas falling from the trees in the freezing temperatures.

The good news is that temperatures across the country are expected to climb up to 10 to 20 degrees above average by midweek, CNN reported.
