CHICAGO, Ill. -- One half of the first same-sex couple to be married in Illinois has died.
Vernita Gray and her wife, Pat Ewert, were allowed to marry early last November, because of Gray's illness.
Gray came out as a lesbian soon after she attended the legendary Woodstock concert in New York in 1969.
Gray worked in the Cook County State's Attorney's office for two decades.
She had been battling breast cancer since the early 1990's.
She was 65.
