Mother dies on the same date she was born, engaged and married

Wednesday, September 19th, 2007

The Scotsman – Scotland – Dundee – Mother dies on the same date she was born, engaged and married:

“A woman who got engaged and married on her birthday has died on the same date.

Moira Brodie was born on 16 September, 1938. She got engaged on 16 September, 1959, married husband Peter exactly two years later and died on 16 September, 2007.”

As one of the commenters on this article points out, there’s nothing supernatural about it. You have a one in 365 chance of dying on your birthday, all things being equal, while the engagement and wedding are deliberate acts, so take those out of the equation and it’s no longer quite so spooky and instead just a ‘nice’ (if sad) story.
