Fans gathered out front of the Brentwood Presbyterian Church just to catch a glimpse of the newlyweds.

Stewart adopted both of her two sons, and they had had twin daughters in 1951.

They remained married until her death from lung cancer in 1994.

Per Wikipedia, rather than replace his pacemaker battery in late 1996, he opted to let nature take its course. In June, he passed from a pulmonary embolism, telling his children, “I’m going to be with Gloria now!” And if that ain’t true love, I don’t know what is.
