Jeanne Louise Calment
« on: May 28, 2013, 11:08:32 AM »
Jeanne Louise Calment (21 February 1875 – 4 August 1997) was a French supercentenarian who had the longest confirmed human lifespan in history, living to the age of 122 years, 164 days. She lived in Arles, France, for her entire life, outliving both her daughter and grandson by several decades. Calment became especially well known from the age of 113, when the centenary of Vincent van Gogh's visit brought reporters to Arles. She entered the Guinness Book of Records in 1988, and on 17 October 1995 became the oldest person ever, having surpassed the (now discounted) case of Shigechiyo Izumi of Japan. --Wiki

Calment became the last living documented person born in the 1870s when the Japanese supercentenarian Tane Ikai (born 1879) died on 12 July 1995, and was thenceforth more than five and a half years older than any other living human being until her death over two years later; in total she outlived 329 undisputedly-verified supercentenarians. Her lifespan has been thoroughly documented by scientific study. More records have been produced to verify her age than in any other case.

According to Calment, she met Vincent van Gogh at the age of 13, when he came into her uncle's shop in 1888. She found him to be "Dirty, badly dressed and disagreeable." --Wiki

Funny Fact: Calment had no living heirs in 1965 at age 90. She made a deal to sell her apartment to lawyer Andrea-Francois Raffray on a contingency contract. This is often referred to as a reverse mortgage. He agreed to pay her 2500 francs every month until her death. Sounds like a smart move on his part considering she was 90 years old. He ended up paying her what equates to $180,000, which is more than double the apartment’s worth. After Raffray’s death in 1995 from cancer at age 77, his wife continued the payments until Calment’s death. How silly would you feel making that deal then having her live over 32 years after age 90? -- http://listverse.com/

Calment’s Secret of Longevity

Jeanne Calment came from a bourgeois family and never had to work.  Her husband, a cousin, was a prosperous storeowner who offered her a life of ease revolving around tennis, bicycling, swimming, roller skating, piano and opera. 

In later years, Calment lived mostly off the income from her apartment, which she sold cheaply to a lawyer when she was 90.  Andre-Francois Raffray, who apparently relied on the actuarial table, signed a contingency contract  with Calment and agreed to pay a life annuity of 2,500 francs ($500) a month under a deal to make him the owner of Calment's flat when she dies.  Yet, he died at 77 and his family was still paying for more than a year until she died.  Altogether, they paid more than 900,000 francs ($180,000), three times the value of the house.

Internationally, researchers are fascinated with Calment for both her longevity and her vitality.  "She never did anything special to stay in good health," said French researcher Jean-Marie Robine. They attribute her longevity to her immunity to stress.   She once said “ If  you can’t do anything about it, don’t worry about it.”

Calment herself credited an occasional glass of Port wine and a diet rich in olive oil for her longevity. She also recommended laughter as a recipe for longevity and jokes that "God must have forgotten me." ( L'Oubliee de Dieu?).   For skin care, she recommends olive oil and a dab of make-up.  "All my life I've put olive oil on my skin and then just a puff of powder.  I could never wear mascara, I cried too often when I laughed."

She took up fencing lessons at 85 and rode bicycle until 100.   However, she used to ate two lbs. of chocolate per week until her doctor persuaded her to give up sweets at the age of 119. 

She quit smoking only at 119, but her doctor said her abstinence was due to pride rather than health — she was too blind to light up herself, and hated asking someone to do it for her.

Quotations by Jeanne Calmert

Calment was as alert as a hummingbird and showed no signs of senile dementia.  She was well known and liked for her tart wit.  Some of her famous quotations:

I've waited 110 years to be famous, I count on taking advantage of it. - Jeanne Calmert during her 120th birthday party

A very short one. - also on her 120th  birthday, when asked what kind of  future did she expect

Her birthdays were a sort of family holiday in Arles, where all the people of Arles gathered around their “Jeanne D’Arles”.  In one of this party, somebody took leave by telling her, “Until next year, perhaps,” she retorted: “I don’t see why not!  You don’t look so bad to me.”

She may be most famous in France, where she was the “doyenne of humanity”, for her many bons mots, including “I've never had but one wrinkle, and I'm sitting on it.”
