CHEBOYGAN COUNTY, Mich., (WPBN/NBC News) — A 91-year-old Cheboygan, Michigan woman who defied the odds and beat COVID-19 returned home.
Lucille Scheele was honored by friends, family and neighbors parading past her house after she won her two-and-a-half-week battle with the coronavirus.
“The emotion was surreal, it really brought tears in my eyes,” Lucille’s daughter Renee Brown said.
Lucille noticed a tickle in her throat about three weeks ago and then was diagnosed with pneumonia, then COVID-19.
“I couldn’t believe it,” Lucille said. “I wouldn’t wish it on anybody though.”
