Italian Emma Morano, last known survivor of 19th century, dies at 117

Think about this for a moment,,,

Morano’s death, at the age of 117 years and 137 days, means there is no one living known to have been born before 1900. Her first love died in World War I, but she married later and left her violent husband just before the Second World War and shortly after the death in infancy of her only son. That was 30 years before divorce became legal in Italy. In an interview with AFP last year, she put her longevity down to her diet. “I eat two eggs a day, and that’s it. And cookies. But I do not eat much because I have no teeth.”
