Survivor. That's what Sylvia Goldsholl calls herself.  I think we all would agree.

Sylvia is 108 years young.  Not only did she live through the 1918 flu pandemic…she has also just survived coronavirus.  

Sylvia lives at a nursing home in Allendale, New Jersey.  She was diagnosed with COVID-19 last month, but has since fully recovered. It appears to make her the oldest person in that state to recover from the virus.

As for how Sylvia feels about surviving not one, but two pandemics?  She says "I survived everything because I was determined to survive."  She adds, “The oldest of four children, I was the smartest one from the bunch…I am a survivor. I've got to come out on the top of every list."
