CINCINNATI (WKRC) - While they may not be able to get together face-to-face, a local family found a way to celebrate a very special day for someone they love.
Wednesday was Mary Elizabeth O’Hern's 100th birthday. Her friends and family call her "Libby" and her great-grandchildren call her "Bibby". It's understandably a big day for everyone who loves her, but due to social distancing and coronavirus concerns it's not possible for everyone to get together and celebrate. A large party of 50 family members was planned for Wednesday, but obviously that fell through due to the virus.
However, that didn't stop "Bibby's" family from showing her their love. Working with staff at Twin Towers Senior Living Community, they were able to gather outside her window and surprise her!
Holding signs and singing songs, Bibby's family found a way to show their love.
Bibby was born in Kansas City, Missouri. She has outlived all but one of her six brothers. She was married for over 60 years and had two children. Her husband and her son are both deceased. She moved to Cincinnati six years ago to be closer to her remaining daughter, granddaughter, and three great-grandchildren.
The large family party for Bibby will be rescheduled for a later, safer, date, Local 12 News is told.
