95-Year-Old Navy Veteran Beats Coronavirus
He’s lived through the Great Depression, served during WWII and now has survived the CV-19 pandemic.
“Bill Kelly lived through the Great Depression. He served in the South Pacific during World War II. At 95, the Yamhill County resident still has a bit of fight left in him, even after a weekslong bout with coronavirus.”
“‘Grandpa Bill’s pretty hardcore,’ his granddaughter, Rose Etherington, 41, told The Oregonian/OregonLive. Etherington as well as her mother, husband and two small children, a 5-year-old and 11-month-old, live together with Kelly in McMinnville.”
“Her grandfather completed his COVID-19 recovery Monday, she said, which also marked the end of a 14-day home quarantine for the rest of the family. Their saga began when Kelly came down with a low-grade fever and complained of not feeling well on March 15.”
“Because of several medical issues — kidney disease, a congenital heart condition, high blood pressure — he went to the hospital and stayed overnight, Etherington said.”
