WALNUT RIDGE, Ark. (KAIT) - A 102-year-old Northeast Arkansas nursing home resident is proving to be quite a fighter.

Ms. Mae, who resides at Walnut Ridge Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, was born during the Spanish Flu epidemic in 1918.

Since then she has survived the Great Depression, World War II, September 11, and other global crises.

Now, in 2020, she has survived COVID-19.

The nursing center celebrated her return to her room on Monday.

As you can see from the photos the center posted on social media, she was elated to be back home.

102 year old Ms. Mae is moving back to her room today! Mae beat Covid-19! Mae is so happy and so are we!!!! Debbie Dacus
