Share

Click here to see the article on the top 10 oldest people in the world.

A Russian woman who was claimed to be the oldest living person on earth died at the age of 117. Varvara Semennikova, who lived in a small village in northwest Yakutia, Russia, was the oldest woman in Russia and claimed to be the oldest person in the world since August 2007.

She was born in 1890 and would have marked her 118 birthday in May, 2008. The date of her birth was found in a register book in the Church of the Savior. However, her age was not verified in the Guinness World Record Book.

Varvara Semennikova was an Evenk woman born in a nomadic family who were hunting and deer farming. The oldest Russian woman was married twice and she was 27 years older than her first husband. All of her children died, that's why she adopted three more children from whom she was having dozens of grandchildren and great grandchildren.

The centenarian woman enjoyed good meal and would eat a boiled meat, bread and butter and tea for dinner. She had a good memory, although her hearing and eyesight worsened.

Yakutia, the north region of Russia is famous for its centenarians with 254 people aged over 80 and 55 over 100. The overall population of this region is 950,000 people. In spite of the cold winters, lack of vitamins and poor diet, Yakutian people are on the second place among centenarians in Russia.

My Grand mother Maria Bafungura died in 2009 at the Age of 114,She got married in 1915 at 20 years and she was a spincinter in her home location.

She wedded in 1928 and the couple traveled a distance of 115km on foot for a wedding at Mbarara,Mbarara is 250km west of Kampala Ugandan capital city,the whole journey took 7 days
In 1928 she had lost all the nine children at birth and she finally produced a living child in 1930
By the time she died,she had left a population of 320 people
She attributed her long stay to hard work and eating non organic foods
She had lost eye site but she could recognize people by their voice
She would remember when she traveled on foot 80km to see the first white in her area

I heard that if we could lower the temperature of our body a bit, we could live longer. probably that's why a cold shower everyday is very healthy!

unbelievable! people cannnot live that long! on the other hand, as far as I know, Yakutia is one of the most clean regions of Russia - there are snow, cold weather and lot and lot of work to do.. so there's no time for cell phones, TV, radioation, alchohol, tobbacco, and other stuff that kills.. slowly but confidently
