A 116-year-old Italian woman who was the oldest person in Europe and the second oldest in the world has died.
Giuseppina Robucci died Tuesday in the southern Italian town of Poggio Imperiale.
She was born in the same town on March 20, 1903 and lived 116 years and 90 days.
Robucci was the last European person born in 1903. She was just two months younger than the current oldest living person, Kane Tanaka of Japan, who was born on Jan. 2, 1903.
Known locally as Nonna Peppa, Robucci had five children, nine grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren.
Robucci is No. 17 on the list of people in the world who have lived the longest lives.
Italy previously claimed the world’s oldest woman. Emma Moran, the last living person verified to have been born in the 1800s, died on April 15, 2017 at the age of 117 years and 137 days.
