Emma Morano, the world's oldest person, has died in her home in northern Italy--one day before Easter Sunday.
Dr. Carlo Bava, Morano's doctor for over 30 years, said that Morano's caretaker had called him to say she had stopped breathing in the afternoon while sitting in an armchair at her home in Verbania, a town on Italy's Lake Maggiore. Bava said he visited Emma on Good Friday. He says "she thanked me and held my hand" as usual.
Morano, born on Nov. 29, 1899, had been living in a tidy, one-room apartment, where she was kept company by her caregiver and two elderly nieces.
Think about it... Emma is reported to have been the last living person born in the 1800s. She is blessed to have lived such a long and productive life. Read more about her life HERE.
We'll all pray for you, Emma.
