ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - After spending about a month at Christian Hospital in north St. Louis County, 101-year-old June Dieckmann was discharged and had a lot of people to celebrate with.

She blew kisses to the hospital staff who lined the hallway and out the front doors. The life-long St. Louis native said she was just ready to be back in her own apartment. 

She was admitted to the hospital with COVID-19 in mid-April.
