An 89 year old Grandma who lives alone in Chicago has been cooped up with her TV, computer games, and her sewing machine. When the world was put on lock down, the first thing on Grandma Terry’s mind was the safety of her family all over the country. She grabbed all the fabric she could, and made personalized masks for more than 50 family members. She used fabric of their favorite sports teams and wrote them all notes of encouragement. When some of her elderly friends heard about her efforts, they decided to join her. Together they made more than 600 masks for the nursing home residents where Terry lives. All the while, Grandma Terry was listening to The Beatles.
