Emma Morano blows candles in the day of her birthday in Verbania, .
And on Saturday, friends and family of Morano, believed to be the oldest women alive, reported her death at home in Italy, Reuters reports. He says "she thanked me and held my hand" as usual.
Ms Morano lived in northern Italy and was born on November 29, 1899, four years before the Wright brothers first took to the air.
Dr Bava also lives in Verbania and had been her doctor for almost a quarter of a century.
"I eat two eggs a day, and that's it". That husband reportedly beat her, but she was able to escape the relationship 12 years later.
Robert Young, director of the Los Angeles-based GRG's Supercentenarian Research and Database Division, said he had been following Morano 's progress for the past seven years, calling her an example of "super-ageing individuals who seem to age at a slower rate than normal - maybe even a few percentage points slower, but enough to make a difference".
It was not a happy marriage - they had a son in 1937, but the baby died after just six months and the following year Ms Morano kicked out her abusive husband.
"I separated from him in 1938". 'She was always very decisive'.
Morano told reporters that she had a fiancé who died during World War I, before she was forced into marrying someone else who threatened to kill her if she refused.
The world's oldest living person is now believed to be Violet Brown, a Jamaican woman born on March 10, 1900. Since then, she supported herself, lived alone, and worked in a jute factory until the age of 65.
