James Edward Jimmy Evans COVID-19 nursing home death

James Edward “Jimmy” Evans died on April 6, 2020 of COVID-19 at the age of 82. He fell ill with coronavirus while at Frontier Health and Rehabilitation in St. Charles, MO and within a few days was rushed to the hospital where he died alone and confused. He had Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s but he could still recognize his brother when they chatted one last time on a phone-video call.

The only mention of Jimmy Evan’s life or death that I could find was in the St. Louis Post Dispatch (STLToday) article cited below. Read it for the full heartbreaking story.
