ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- At 101-years young, June Dieckmann was joyous as she was discharged from Christian Hospital after surviving the coronavirus. She blew kisses to the staff members who took care of her.
June was admitted to the hospital in mid-April.
June grew up in St. Louis and currently lives alone at an assisted living facility. She was married to her husband for 73 years. She has two children and has volunteered in the community for over 50 years.
She was too young to remember the influenza pandemic of 1918, but she grew up riding the streetcar to school.
June will celebrate her next birthday this coming October.
