97-year-old great-grandmother from Staffordshire beats the coronavirus | Central

A 97 year old great grandmother who was corporal in
The female RAF during the Second World War beat the coronavirus.

Joyce Goldstraw, of Leek in Staffordshire, fell ill on Monday, March
16 and tested positive for the virus.

She was taken to Macclesfield General Hospital where she was treated for two weeks.

Hospital measures and social distance rules meant that she could not be visited by her three children, six grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

His family wondered if the virus or government restrictions would prevent Joyce from returning home.

However, against all odds, the nearly 100-year-old has fully recovered and returned home last week after tests showed she had passed the disease.

My mom has always been incredibly strong, but seeing the coronavirus is incredible.

Mom was a corporal in the women’s Royal Air Force during the Second
World War – something she is incredibly proud of to this day – and
perhaps it is that fighting spirit that has seen it through this
last fight.

– John Goldstraw, Joyce’s son

Joyce was stationed at Tern Hill RAF airport in Shropshire during
World War II, working on Lancaster Bombers and Spitfire
aircraft.

While the country remains stuck, Joyce is urging people to listen to the message from governments at home so that normalcy can be restored in time because her granddaughter Alice will marry in the fall.

We are all so proud of Nana, it’s an inspiration. It is extraordinary that a woman of her age has passed the virus and credit goes to the NHS staff who are putting themselves at risk for providing the assistance that people need.

We are desperate to have her at our wedding, so please do as Nana says
and listen to the latest tips.

– Alice, Joyce’s granddaughter

Joyce is one of the oldest women in the UK to have beaten the coronavirus.
