GLOUCESTER, Va. – “She could bellow from the bottom of her soul,” said Lisa Jones.
58-year-old Gloucester resident Drene Keyes was a gifted singer, a mother and grandmother of six.
“She was such a loving and generous person,” said Jones.
Unexpectedly, Lisa lost her mother on Saturday within a couple of hours after Keyes received the Pfizer vaccine in Warsaw.
“Right before she left, I was helping her put her shoes on,” she said.
Keyes had diabetes, sleep apnea and was obese. Her job made her eligible for the first dose. So, on Saturday, Keyes got the Pfizer vaccine and spent 15 minutes in the mandatory observation period.
