Diane Berthelot, who had been ill for months after having an operation to remove her gall bladder, was on medications for an infection and claimed to have visited the church to escape the summer heat, the Daily Express reported.
Berthelot asserted that she was praying for a full recovery at the time while her husband and son wandered around the empty church taking photographs.
In one of the images, Berthelot can be seen sitting on a pew while a woman wearing a bonnet and dressed in light-colored, old-fashioned clothes, is seated directly behind her on a bench.
Berthelot recalled that she felt “tingly, warm and comfortable” when she was sitting on the wooden bench with her eyes closed and head bowed.
