Filmmaker Perry To Rebuild 88-year-old Great-grandmother’s Home After It Burns To The Ground

Entertainment mogul Tyler Perry is offering to rebuild the home of an 88-year-old great-grandmother who lost all her belongings in a fire.

Rosa Lee Ransby and her 4-year-old great-granddaughter escaped the fire Tuesday that destroyed her home of 40 years in Coweta County, southwest of Atlanta. Coweta County firefighters began soliciting donations, and calls flooded in.

The Atlanta-based filmmaker visited Ransby’s neighborhood Thursday and pledged to rent her a house for a year, pay for her utilities, buy her furniture and then build her a new home.

Coweta Fire Chief Todd Moore said Perry’s decision “made my Christmas.”
