World's Oldest Woman Dies

World's Oldest Woman Dies

The world's oldest woman died on December 11th, 2006 at an amazing 116 years old.

Elizabeth Bolden was born on Aug. 15, 1890 as the daughter of freed slaves. The family said Bolden had 40 grandchildren, 75 great grandchildren, 150 great-great grandchildren, 220 great-great-great grandchildren and 75 great-great-great-great grandchildren. Unbelievable.

What I wouldn't have given if I could have picked her brain to learn what her secrets were. If a 116 year old woman is not inspiration that you really can live healthier and longer, I don't know what is.
