A 101-year-old World War II veteran and his 73-year-old daughter — who live at the same Maryland nursing home — were able to celebrate Memorial Day Weekend together after both beating the coronavirus, The Post has learned.

Charles Barbier and his daughter Kathryn Dean were reunited on Friday after spending weeks in isolation at the Westminster Healthcare Center’s COVID-19 ward, said Lisa McLaurin, a nurse at the facility, about 35 miles from Baltimore.

The father and daughter, who are originally from Louisiana, fell ill in late April. Dean said “it’s a blessing from God” that they both survived.

“My dad is 101 so that’s a big accomplishment,” she told The Post. “He survived a war, the depression and now this. He’s an amazing guy.”

Since other family members aren’t able to visit amid the pandemic, Dean said she was grateful to be reunited with her dad on Friday to celebrate Memorial Day and their recovery.
