How old is/was the oldest person you've ever known?

spiced spiced
I have a great aunt who'll turn 100 this year. She's a remarkable woman in many other ways besides her longevity. Still 'sharp as a tack' and living at home at age 99.

I actually knew someone even older than she is, many years ago; my friend's grandfather made it to (I think) 103. (He was a real character, too!) How old is the oldest person YOU'VE ever known? Feel free to tell us about them!

My great grandfather (my dad's dad's dad) lived into his late 90s. My great grandmother (my dad's mother's mother) lived into her 90s. My neighbor's father (also a Mediterranean man) lived into his late 90s, too. Italians tend to live a long life. Must be all the pasta, olives, olive oil and tomatoes. At least that's what our neighbor attributed it to. "All my freinds, then onna "no bread diet" "a no salt diet" "a no fat diet" "a no meat diet." They issa all dead! I eata whata I like. And-a I live-a long-a time. I doan wanna live without-a good food. Pasta, olive, oil anna good bread. An I walk-a every day."

Best advice I've ever heard.

Sadly all the older people I knew didn't live that long. Congrats to your great aunt, that's awesome!

My great grandma Gigi was 102 when I met her, but I was only 5 & not too impressed with her age, I just liked her cos she was funny & she loved little kids.

Most of the people I know who are older are in their late 80's & early to middle 90's. I'm friends with lots of older people; I just like them. they're interesting, most are usually nice & they just love me, maybe because I don't ignore them or treat them like a burden/nuisance.

A family friend died last year at 99. We were sure she would make it to 100, as she was bright and vivacious up until the end (well, until they took her to the nursing home..can't think about that or I'll get enraged.)

A relative who was 96, although I'm pretty sure my neighbor is the Crypt Keeper.

My great great granny was 102 years old when she passed. She was the sweetest, most kind caring person that I have ever known or met in my life. She experienced so much and i loved to hear her talk and her stories

Ditto! My Granmother lived to 93. She was playing bingo with her friends one Wednesday - the next we were at her wake. Dolly was a 1st generation Italian-American - just as you said - tons of tomatoes, olives, pasta - and especially garlic!

LOL What an interesting question. That's awesome that you have such a wonderful aunt in your life & I bed you have had the luxury of learning so much from her. I LOVE hearing anything my grandparents can tell me. I could spend hours listening to them just talking about life. It's very different from what someone my age has lived & there's so much to learn.

Anyways, I really don't know who's the oldest person I've ever known. I'm pretty sure it was my grandma who was 92, I believe. She was either 92 or very, very close to being 92. I was a child when she died though. About when I was in the 2nd or 3rd grade.

My partner knows a lot of old people. Lol. His job is running rental property and everything to do with his family's property (cleaning, maintenance, fixing things, etc -- makes him handy as hell too!) and he helps out the eldery people who rent from them really often so he's always got really neat stories from them.

Both my great grandmother and grandfather were 90 when they passed away. Growing up my great grandmother was my best friend until she passed away, which happened on my 10th birthday.
I have great memories of them and I'm so glad that I got to spend time with them.

Yes! That's outstanding advice! And a fun story - thanks for sharing it with us.

I enjoy spending time with older folks, too. The people who make it into their 80s and 90s are usually amazing people. It always pains me when people don't realize what's special about them.

I totally voted without thinking of the people I knew when I worked at the Rehab center. Some of them were over 100! I was thinking of my Great Grandma, who died at like 95. She was living on her own until she was like 91, though, and made great fudge!
