TULSA, Oklahoma -

A Catoosa family is remembering their loved one who died from COVID-19 complications. 

Lacy Hutchinson was eight months pregnant when she got sick. 

Lacy's sister Autumn Trammel says Lacy was full of life, and so excited to be a new mom. She says Lacy loved to be with her family, spending time fishing and going to the zoo. 

"She was the most amazing person I've ever known, she was bubbly, full of life, anyone that she came in contact with, she just touched so many lives," Autumn said. 

Autumn says about three weeks ago, Lacy tested positive for COVID-19. 

Because she was eight months pregnant, she was admitted to the hospital, and ended up having pneumonia. 

The baby was delivered through a c-section to help Lacy. 

"Every time she would fall asleep her oxygen levels would drop, and it was decided to put her on the ventilator and after two weeks her lungs were not healing," Autumn said. 

Lacy died after two weeks on the ventilator. 

Autumn says Lacy had been married for 13 years and was so excited to be a new mom and to bring home a baby sister for her five-year-old daughter. 

"Anything and everything that she needed or wanted, she would try and provide that for her, she loved doing things with her," she said. 

Autumn says their family is devastated but will do everything they can to make sure their daughters know their mom. 

"I just want to live in her name and let her daughters never forget who she was, and I just want everyone to be safe and cautious out there and take care," she said. 

The baby is now home from the hospital and is healthy.
