Back in November, Emma Morano celebrated her 117th birthday. She was officially the LAST person alive who was born in the 1800’s (November 29th, 1899 to be specific)
Unfortunately Emma passed away at her home in Northern Italy Saturday afternoon, while sitting in an armchair in her home in Verbania, a town on Lake Maggiore.
She credits her long life on good genes, her diet, which included 2 eggs (even though her doctor said she used to eat 3) and a 3.5 ounce raw steak daily, and the decision to give the boot to her abusive husband back in 1938.
Rest In Peace, Emma
