A ‘feisty’ 103-year-old grandmother has beat the coronavirus. She celebrated her victory against the virus with an ice-cold beer.
Jennie Stejna, from Wilbraham, Massachusetts, US, remarked that the Bud Light was ‘cold’ as she took a sip of it in her nursing home bed.
The woman recording her asked if it was good and Jennie replied saying ‘yeah’ before taking another gulp and licking her lips.
Her carer then responded ‘it’s the best one, it’s cold’, to which the Boston Red Sox fan once again said ‘yeah’.
Jennie’s passion for beer is said to come from her love of baseball.
Her granddaughter said she usually sits outside to listen to Red Sox games on the radio.
She fell victim of the coronavirus three weeks ago, and was the first person in her care home to get the disease.
Jennie, whose husband passed away in 1992 aged 82, had a visit from her great-granddaughter Violet Gunn just before her health deteriorated.
It was so bad at one point that her family prepared to say their final goodbyes.
Her granddaughter Shelley’s husband Adam Gunn asked Jennie if she was ready to go to heaven, to which she responded ‘hell yes.’
Jennie has made a remarkable recovery, and is the first person in Life Care Center to overcome the virus.
According to USA Today, Adam said: “This feisty old Polish grandmother of ours officially beat the coronavirus. We’re truly very thankful.”
