Nancy Williams, a resident at the Retreat at Loganville, is 96 years old and most who know her will attest to the fact that she’s always been a firecracker. She’s also a lady of many talents.
“Above all, she’s always been a great seamstress! At 96, she’s still at it on her sewing machine making mask for workers at her facility and to send to the grands who are working in healthcare,” her daughter, Joan Ottinger, noted in a Facebook post. “I believe she’s made close to 50, with more fabric headed her way!”
Ottinger said her mother had actually made close to 75 by this week when her sewing machine just couldn’t take the pace.
Ottinger said she explained to her mother that it was like the war effort back in World War II, and that was all it took. It will be a couple of weeks before the machine is back. Ottinger said dropping it off in this COVID-19 era of social distancing took some creativity. It had to be wiped down with disinfecting wipes and left outside the repair location to be picked up.
