A Michigan mother-of-four and prominent figure in Detroit’s vibrant ballroom scene died of coronavirus before she could say goodbye to loved ones.

When symptoms of the coronavirus became too much for Laneeka Barksdale, 47, to bear, she tried to drive herself to the hospital over fears she would infect her loved ones.

The article goes on to state the following:

Laneeka initially believed she was suffering a common cold when she began feeling sick in early March, but a mild cough turned into a fever that spiked at 102 degrees. Then it stole her breath.

The report states that Laneeka was hospitalized on March 14, and passed away nine days later, without even being able to say goodbye to her family.

She leaves behind four children, ages 7, 17, 25 and 26.
