A 116-year-old woman who officials say was the oldest individual in Europe and the second oldest on Earth has recently passed away. Her name was Giuseppina Robucci and she passed in Poggio Imperiale, a town in Southern Italy. She lived for 116 years and 90 days. She was only two months younger than the world’s oldest living person, Kane Tanaka from Japan.
Giuseppina Robucci is number 17 on the list of the world’s longest-lived people. Giuseppina ran a coffee bar with her husband for an extended period of her life. She was named “Honorary Mayor” in 2012 and referred to as “Nonna Peppa” by locals. Her descendants are plentiful as she gave birth to 5 children, had 9 grandchildren, and 16 great-grandchildren!
Alfonso D’Aloisio, the town’s mayor, expressed, “We are saddened by her death, but at the same time we are honored to have had her as a fellow citizen.” Giuseppina Robucci touched many lives and will be remembered forever.
