President Obama at Ann’s Place in Akron, Ohio early Friday morning. JIM WATSON/AFP/GettyImages(AKRON, Ohio) — Just an hour after hosting President Obama for breakfast, the owner of an Akron, Ohio, restaurant is dead.

Reporters going to Ann’s Place in Akron to follow up on the president’s choice of breakfast were stunned to learn the restaurant’s owner — 70-year-old Josephine “Ann” Harris — died after meeting with him over eggs, bacon and wheat toast, according to Ed Esposito of ABC’s Akron affiliate WAKR. She complained of fatigue and a tingling feeling when taken to the hospital, where she died about an hour after serving President Obama on the second day of his bus campaign through Ohio and western Pennsylvania.

“I’m sure this was her highlight,” Frankie Adkins, Harris’ sister, who lives in Tulsa, Okla., told the Akron Beacon Journal. “She loved Obama.”
