Preserved by Marmalade

Nonagenarian from Stockport beats coronavirus by eating marmalade sandwiches; she’s previously survived a bomb and likes biscuits also

Like Guardian readers, we at The Steeple Times love marmalade and we especially enjoy marmalade with lots of whisky in it. We’ve reported on the correspondence sent to the letter’s column of the previously mentioned King’s Cross based publication on the subject of the link between marmalade and longevity and now, today, it can be revealed that the eldest person to recover from coronavirus is proof of the pudding.

 

Against all odds, 99-year old Rita Reynolds from Bramhall, Stockport – whom fell ill with COVID-19 on 25th March – has beaten the virus and made a full recovery.

 

Of this good news, the nonagenarian’s grandson, Henry Phillips, told the Guardian’s Jessica Murray: “I don’t know how she got through it. I don’t think she has ever eaten a vegetable or fruit. She lives on marmalade sandwiches and biscuits. But she’s never smoked or really drank.”

 

Mrs Reynolds is plainly like a cat with nine lives. In the Second World War, aged 21, she supposedly refused to go into an air raid shelter “because she wanted to read her book.” She instead hid under a table at her home in Liverpool and amazingly survived when a bomb landed right outside.

  1. I’m in my 80s and now I am going to start having marmalade every day. Your previous articles made me curious, but now I’m convinced.

  2. Good to have some positive news about someone old recovering. That’s what we want to hear. Rita is plainly a spirited sort – Cheers to her.
