French longevity case who celebrated her 122nd birthday in 1997. She is blind and is nearly deaf but her mind and wit remain sharp. Never sorry for herself, ready with a quip, she recently set up her own Website after being shown how to work a computer. For last year's birthday, she recorded a rap CD, the release of which sparked a media circus.
She took vigorous daily walks up to 1990 when she broke her hip, now is in a wheelchair. At 100, she still rode her bike and she quit smoking at 118. She lives in a nursing home on the outskirts of Arles. Her one child, born in 1898, died in 1934. Her husband died in 1942 and her only grandson was killed in a car crash in 1963.
