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:

Today is the 5th anniversary of Emma Morano’s death. Riposa in pace carissima Emma!!!😢💜
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
@mendocino I have the entire meeting with Emma that I, Waclaw Jan Kroczek and Georg Fürholzer made in December 2015 recorded.
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. 😢
I remember like it was yesterday. Emma Morano was an exceptional lady, and her legacy will continue to dazzle.
Masa Matsumoto, who was born in Shiga prefecture, Japan (the same as my birthplace) is being born exactly 10 years after Emma Morano's birth.
I feel great potential in Ms. Matsumoto, so it would be great if someone born exactly 10 years later than Ms. Morano will be the WOP.
