Mark Twain wrote, I came in with Halleys Comet and I expect to leave with Halleys Comet. Hester did not make quite as grand an entrance and exit as Mark Twain, but she came into the world in a global pandemic and she left the world in a global pandemic, neither of which affected her good health. In the intervening 102 years she had a full and interesting life.
