(WVLT) - A Maryland woman is looking remarkably well, considering she was declared dead four months ago.
It's not clear how the error was made about her death.
Since the discovery, 81-year-old Phyllis Orr has had a tough time proving she's alive.
All the paperwork Orr has collected indicates she died on April ninth but didn't find out until 3 months later.
That's when a pharmacist called her at home and informed her that she was dead.
“She said, ‘Ms. Orr, I really hate to tell you this, but you're listed as dead,’” Phyllis explains. “I said, ‘I'm what?’”
But this isn't the hardest fight she's faced.
She's beaten cancer twice, had 3 joints replaced, suffered a heart attack and recently underwent a successful triple bypass heart surgery.
