Woman who survived 1918 flu, world war succumbs to COVID

Recommended Posts

Is this lady serious? Peak stupidity. Of course, dying at 105 she will be added to the COVID stats when at that age a trip on a sidewalk crack could do you in.

Woman who survived 1918 flu, world war succumbs to COVID

 

She lived a life of adventure that spanned two continents. She fell in love with a World War II fighter pilot, barely escaped Europe ahead of Benito Mussolini’s fascists, ground steel for the U.S. war effort and advocated for her disabled daughter in a far less enlightened time. She was, her daughter said, someone who didn’t make a habit of giving up.

And then this month, at age 105, Primetta Giacopini’s life ended the way it began — in a pandemic.

“I think my mother would have been around quite a bit longer” if she hadn’t contracted COVID,” her 61-year-old daughter, Dorene Giacopini, said. “She was a fighter. She had a hard life and her attitude always was ... basically, all Americans who were not around for World War II were basically spoiled brats.”

Well if she didn't get the "dangerous" virus she might have made it to 200.
