Marion Williams, 103 years, of Choppins, left the Argyle Isolation Center – AIC, today (October 7) after winning her battle with Covid-19.
Williams, who celebrated her 103rd birthday on October 5, was admitted at the AIC on September 14 after experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.
She was unvaccinated.
According to her family, Williams was “in good spirits and was singing praises to God for keeping her after she was discharged,” from the AIC.
“She is a woman of faith so she always praying and singing.
We are just grateful that she can be home with us and we can celebrate her birthday as We will normally do each year even though it will be celebrated after,” a family member told One News SVG.
“This experience has taught us that God is still God in good and bad times. She is an overcomer,” the family member told One News SVG.
The family member said that Ms. Williams enjoys eating ground provision “so that’s her first meal on arrival home”.
Williams is the first centenarian on record in St. Vincent and the Grenadines to have beat the virus.
Meanwhile, the Isolation facility at Argyle has come in for high praises from its former patients.
