The world's oldest person and the last surviving child of the 19th century, Emma Morano, has died aged 117.

USA Today reported that Emma Morano died Saturday while sitting in her rocking chair in her home in the Northern Italy town of Verbania.

The doctor said he had last paid his daily call on her on Friday. According to her physician she did not suffer and passed away peacefully.

Morano, born on November 29, 1899, had been living in a one-room apartment, where she was kept company by her caregiver and two elderly nieces. He said she was happy with the life she had had, but it was clear during the last weeks of her life that she was 'slowly fading away'.

A woman in Jamaica, Violet Brown, who was born on the Caribbean island on 10 March, 1900, is now considered the world's oldest person. "Today she has slowed down a bit, reducing the number to two some days because she says three can be too much", Bava was reported saying by Reuters a year ago.

One of the supercentenarian's caretakers told Jamaica Observer columnist Jean Lowrie-Chin a year ago: "She likes fish and mutton and sometimes she will have cow foot, but she does not eat pork or chicken".

Bava had been her physician for almost a quarter of a century.

Morano also believed that a sufficient amount of beauty sleep was essential for longevity.

Following the advice she gave her a doctor when she was 20 years old, she ate for almost a century three eggs a day, two raw and one boiled meat and small few fruits or vegetables. "I eat two eggs a day, and that's it".

Morano attributed her long life to genetics, as her mother lived to be 91 and several of her sisters were also centenarians before they died.

"I didn't want to be dominated by anyone", she told The New York Times of her 1938 separation from her husband.

Beside work, she enjoyed herself. In a 2011 interview, Morano claimed to have never wanted to marry in the first place and having only given in because she was threatened.
