Wedding Bells Ring For Birthmate Couple

June 15, 1985

GREECE, N.Y. (AP) _ Lori Sidoti and Chuck Krause started life 25 minutes apart, but they plan to spend the rest of it side by side.

The two were getting married today, 33 years and two days after they were born at St. Mary’s Hospital in Rochester to mothers who shared a room after the deliveries.

The couple ran into each other 10 years ago, and in making small talk discovered they were born the same day. But they’d been dating two years before they learned their mothers had met in the maternity ward.

″I’m still amazed by it all,″ says Krause, an insurance salesman, 25 minutes younger than his bride.

″(It’s) unique,″ agrees Ms. Sidoti, a banker. ″Only once in a lifetime would you marry the person you were practically born with.″
