BOSTON (CBS) — In these sad and somber days of COVID-19, Clementina Chery knows what her mother would say.
“She always focused on her faith and bright side of the dark,” Chery said. “What do other people need? Always calling people — what do you need and how can I be of service?”
Zoila Weddborn’s entire life was one of service. The 79-year-old passed away from the coronavirus earlier this month at Boston Medical Center. It’s the same place her daughter said her mom spent much of her life as a dedicated nurse in the SICU before retiring in 2011.
“This COVID-19 infringed on her freedom,” Chery said.
Weddborn worked at the hospital for 40 years.
