Edna Parker has died at 115

Lifelong Indiana resident and world's oldest living person, Edna Parker, died on Wednesday at her Shelbyville nursing home. Parker had lived in the farmhouse she shared with her husband Earl, who succumbed to a heart attack in 1939, until the age of 100. She remained active until the end, taking daily walks.

The supercentenarian outlived her two sons, Clifford and Earl Jr. She also had five grandchildren, 13 great-grandchildren and 13 great-great-grandchildren.

I'm always fascinated by the those who make it past 100. If there was one thing I could wish for it would be a long (I mean really long) active life, but I have to wonder what wisdom someone Edna could offer on making to the age of 115?
