PITTSBURGH (Reuters) – The owner of a restaurant in Akron, Ohio, died about an hour after serving breakfast to President Barack Obama on Friday, according to local news reports.
Josephine “Ann” Harris, 70, owner of Ann’s Place, who had served eggs, bacon and toast to the president, died apparently of natural causes, AkronNewsNow.com reported. She had complained of fatigue and a tingling feeling.
