When sheltering at home, social distancing and worries about the coronavirus get you down, there’s always the Queen of Delco, Aunt Mary Pat DiSabatino, reports Alexandria Hoff for Philadelphia.cbslocal.com.

Aunt Mary Pat DiSabatino brings a lot of local flavor and outrageous fun to Facebook.

She’s the creation of Delaware County resident Troy Hendrickson and she’s got 86,000 Facebook followers.

“It was meant as kind of a joke, making fun of my mom,” Hendrickson said.

Three years later, Aunt Mary Pat DiSabatino earns hundreds of thousands of views with each uploaded video and the persona is so popular Hendrickson took her on a national tour.

“We get a lot of messages from people who are just like, thank you so much for making me laugh,” Hendrickson said.

These may be dark times, but that doesn’t stop Aunt Mary Pat DiSabatino, who breaks into a parody of Dolly Parton’s “Jolene.”

“COVID, COVID, COVID-19! I’m begging of you, please don’t shake my hand,” she sings.

Then there’s the remix of Abba’s “Dancing Queen,” as she enjoys a mimosa.

“See that mask, wash your hands, stuck in the quarantine,” Aunt Mary Pat DiSabatino sang.
