Jesus! How long can this woman go on. Mind you I've seen pics of her from a few years back and she doesn't look bad for a 100-year old.

Don't hear much about her but...

DOB 30 March 1902

A socialite, philanthropist, and writer, Astor was born in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Largely self-educated, she was a magazine journalist and the author of four books. She married three times (once divorced, twice widowed). Her third husband, Vincent Astor, left her with a fortune that allowed her to become a philanthropist of major proportions. She has awarded an average of 100 grants a year ($9 million a year) to civic projects, social projects, and cultural institutions in New York City, the New York Public Library being one of her major beneficiaries.

Sorry - must have been sleeping when we covered merging at the Mods class. But Yeti has now passed me his notes, so hopefully no repitition :P

I have to admit, I'm a tad apprehensive about merges as well. Perhaps there should be a private tutorial?

Compared to Ms Astor, absolutely! Oldest living famous person... except maybe Princess Alice.

Ms. Astor certainly has withstood the test of time. I admire her for that. However, I believe she has a maximum of two years left.

I worked for Mrs Astor for 12 years in her summer home in maine.She will be 103 in March she is one of a kind and the last of a generation of a real lady.You may not think she is all together but i can almost bet she would change things if she had the right to do it for herself. She is the best and most giving person i will ever know. I TAKE MY HAT OFF TO HER

I've not been able to retrieve any information regarding Brooke Astor's health on Google, yet I was wondering if any users could provide links relating to this matter. I understand that Mrs. Astor is only of moderate fame (at least in recent years), but I still think it would be interesting to remain informed on her current condition.

There is already a thread on Brooke Astor on the Deathlist itself which has some information. Click here to go there.



Edit: Thanks, STG, this thread has been merged with the proper topic and I have disabled your link. TH

In my experience, yes, some guests have the same longing for towels and bedlinen as zombies have for human flesh.
