|Maria Esther de Capovilla - officially the world's oldest woman - has died in Ecuador aged 116, relatives said.|
Born in 1889, the same year as Charlie Chaplin and Adolf Hitler, Capovilla was 22 when the Titanic sank and 79 when astronauts first set foot on the Moon.
Her family said donkey milk might be key to her longevity.
They had five children, three of whom are still alive, and 11 grandchildren, 20 great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren.
She seemed to have all of faculties even up the very end. It must have been amazing to see things change over the course of the last century the way they have.
Although I'm not sure I would have enjoyed the donkey milk all that much. Ewe...

Nono, it's donkey
milk, not sheep milk, you ass. (Sorry, couldn't resist adding my part of the joke.)

|hrm... dairy jokes, Ill have to resist.|
So yeah, this woman was from my native Ecuador. And like Leroy suggested- it would have been very interesting to see all the progress and change a century brings.
I mean, my great grandma is 80 something- and her stories impress me (regarding WW2 era and whatnot). She also has all her faculties, tho I dont think she was ever a fan of donkey milk.

Don't be to harsh on him. Hee-Hawlways makes that mistake.
Moe is correct. Add to that the normal ebb and flow of this process. New faces (i.e. Clark) often create a buzz especially when compared to the stale, old faces who have been on the trail for a while.
