The flu season has taken a dramatic turn, resulting in two deaths from the H1N1 strain of the virus in Lucas County during the last two weeks.

Toledo-Lucas County Health Department officials said Toledo resident Connie Bucklew, 62, died Tuesday and a 50-year-old Temperance man died Dec. 28. Both were in Toledo Hospital. Ms. Bucklew was semiretired after working more than 30 years in the insurance industry.

Jim Bucklew said his wife, Connie, passed away suddenly. Right after New Year’s Day, she began to feel sick.

“She said stay away from me I’m getting a cold,” he said.

By the weekend she was very ill and it got worse each day. “The weekend the storm really hit and I was thinking, ‘How am I going to get her to the hospital?’ ” Mr. Bucklew said.
