Bad with ages, but my father and everyone on his side of the family lives past 90. Nobody has hit 100 yet though.

Blood relative? Grandmother. She died at 96 at the end of 1999, and I'm 100% sure it was because she already had a headstone with her birth year and then 19__ as her death year, and she didn't want to have to have it redone.

So far, it's my mom...83...and she's still alive and kicking! She's outlived 3 ex-husbands, both her parents, all her siblings. She's got us 4 kids and 7 grandkids.

My hubby’s grandma is still kicking it at 107 and still has her humor about her! Has always been an amazing and kind woman with a friendly smile. In a nursing facility and very beloved. Her secret? Tomatoes!

my paternal grandmother lived to 103. She still had her mind - her heart gave out.
My paternal relatives all live to be over 90 unless they die of a hereditary disease that runs in the family.

103, 93, 88

My family lives a long ass time on both sides. I need good retirement savings.

There could be older people in my family that I don't know. It's a big family.
But of blood relatives that I knew, the oldest was my paternal grandfather who died at 86.

So, I'm the poster from the Holocaust survivor family which means nearly all of my relatives were murdered. My maternal grandparents fled Germany when my mom was 1 and she grew up in Israel. My mom, who had proper nutrition as a child, passed away at 85. My dad, who spent a good chunk of his childhood in concentration camps, is still going strong at 90.

My great uncle is 96 and still living on his own. His doctor (he has outlived three of them) said he will easily live to 100. He is a vocal gay rights advocate and He was a POW in WWII having been captured during the battle of the bulge. I hope I have his long life genes.

The women in my family live to be old.
The men? None with the exception of 1, lived beyond 70.

Great-grandmother lived to be 104, buried 1 husband, 9 children, 22 grandchildren, and 12 siblings.

I don't think I'd like to live that long, where everyone I'd grown up with was dead, and more than likely *their* children are dead.

I think my dad's still alive. If so, he would be 78.
