Emma Morano, thought to be the world's oldest person and the last to be born in the 1800s, reacts in front of her 117th birthday cake in Verbania, northern Italy November 29, 2016.
Emma Morano, the world's oldest woman and the last surviving person born in the 19th century, died at the age of 117 at her home in Italy's Verbania town on Saturday. "She thanked me and held my hand" as usual, he said.
Ms Morano died at her home in the northern city of Verbania, local media added. Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness tweeted his congratulations to her.
He said she had been her usual chatterbox self until a few weeks ago.
Morano was the oldest of eight children.
Her first love died in World War I, but she married later and left her violent husband just before the Second World War and shortly after the death in infancy of her only son.
Last fall on her birthday, Morano declared: "I'm happy I have turned 117!"
Over the years she also worked as a cook in a boarding school until she retired at the age of 75, and remained single, although she never divorced her husband.
