    Detroit couple with 7 children die one day apart after falling ill with COVID-19

    Detroit — The family of a Detroit couple with seven children are grieving after both parents were infected with COVID-19 and died less than a day apart.

    Troy and Charletta Green, married for 22 years, had plans to go to Florida with their seven children in August, Troy’s sister Tiki Green said.

    Charletta’s mother died from COVID-19 in May and the Detroit couple had planned an August vacation with their kids, ages 10 to 23, to spend time together and grieve the loss of their loved one, Tiki Green said.

    “Everyone took it so hard,” she told The Detroit News on Friday. 

    But days before leaving for Orlando on Aug. 13, Troy felt ill and decided to stay back in Detroit until he felt better.

    Charletta went ahead with the children and her sister, but when she arrived in Florida, she too fell ill, Tiki Green said. Within two days, Charletta was bedridden and taken to a hospital in the Orlando area.
