I recently found an inspiring story about the recent passing of the world’s 22nd oldest person and the oldest resident in Massachusetts, Mary Marques. She died peacefully in her nursing home, Julian J. Leavitt Family Jewish Nursing Home in Longmeadow, at the age of 111. She was believed to be the world’s 22d-oldest person, according to the Gerontology Research Group, which validates birthdates of those over 110, who are known as supercentenarians
Much of the credit for her longevity was given to unprocessed foods for the first 40 years of her life, an active lifestyle and red wine. You can read more on Mary Marques and her remarkable life here.
