But after Mrs Timms died in the bedroom of their home in Andoversford, her husband hanged himself from the loft a few feet away, ruled deputy Gloucestershire coroner David Dooley this afternoon.
He recorded a verdict that Mr Timms, a cabinet maker, committed suicide and Mrs Timms, a retired housekeeper, died of natural causes.
The couple had two children and eight grandchildren.
