The world's oldest person and the last known person born in the 1800's who was still alive, died last month. She was born November 29, 1899 in Italy and was the oldest of eight siblings, outliving all of them. Her mother lived to age 91 and several of her sisters reached 100 years. She credited her longevity to eating three eggs a day (two of them raw) for over 90 years and kicking out her worthless husband in 1938. They remained married, but living apart, until he died in 1978.
