GROVE CITY, Ohio — An Ohio woman is grieving after three members of her family died from coronavirus.
According to WSYX and WTTE, Realtor Kelly Conkey Billups, of Grove City, said her parents, Judith and Lewis Conkey, died Tuesday at a local hospital, just days after her brother, David Conkey, also died from the virus. Conkey Billups’ husband, Don Billups, also was hospitalized after he began showing symptoms of the illness, she said.
Conkey Billups, who has been quarantined, said her brother visited their parents March 7 and 8 after Judith Conkey already had fallen ill. The visit came before officials declared a state of emergency in Ohio, she said.
Now, Conkey Billups is urging the public to remain at home amid the pandemic.
