Some Emma Morano content I haven't seen mentioned before is this documentary about her from 2008, when she was 109:

It's amazing to think that she would go on to live an additional 7+ years past this recording! 

There's also this video of her singing on her 111th birthday in 2010:

I remember that day well. It was a sad day and it rained here in Helsingborg.

Rest in peace, Emma Morano.

Already 5 years ago... I also remember that day. The first WOP death that occured after I registered to the 110 Club and the Gerontology Wiki in the autumn of 2016.

Rest in peace, dear Emma Morano.

I well remember that sad day. It was the day before Easter 2017. I was informed by Rosi, niece of Zia Emma (maybe someone could remember this sweet lady who had cared Zia Emma for years). Zia Emma had a stroke in January 2017 and she has been ill for 3 months....family and friends well knew that the end was near but we all hoped in a miracle.....It seemed impossible that Zia Emma could leave us ...

Riposa in pace cara Zia Emma

She was probably the first SC i was following closely through the internet. Two basic reasons of my particular interest were that she was from a neighbouring country and really robust for her age. After her death, i became again less interested in SCs for some time, but certainly she played a role in my interest in extreme longevity.

RIP Emma Morano, a really amazing lady. 😢
