The family of 102-year-old Sophie Avouris never thought she’d survive COVID-19 to celebrate another Easter with them, but that’s exactly what happened.

“Happy Easter, YaYa. We love you so much,” Elizabeth Hurley, the granddaughter of Sophie Avouris, said via FaceTime. “We can’t wait to celebrate with you in person.”
The extended family of Sophie Avouris can’t believe what a great Greek Easter this is for all of them. She was recovering from hip surgery at Mary Manning Walsh nursing home when she contracted COVID-19 last month.
Avouris was the first known COVID case at this Archcare facility. Her family never thought she’d make it but last week she was able to move out of the COVID unit and while the facility is still on lockdown, she was able to receive phone calls from family.

“We were able to wave and say Happy Easter to her,” Effie Strouthides, her daughter, told PIX11 News. “We were really delighted with this.”
Avouris has been through so much in her 102 years.
