My grandma turns 86 tomorrow and it gave me the idea for this thread. 

I may have an older relative I don’t really know about, but she’s definitely the oldest relative I have any relationship with. 

I know she won’t be the oldest in the thread. Will she be the youngest?

I think my grandma. If we don’t go searching extended family, definitely her. 89 and 90 in August.

I have an aunt who is 82. She is the last of the previous generation on either side of my family. Next are my older cousins who are mid-70s. At 64, I should probably stop buying green bananas.

I have a great aunt that is in her 90’s, but the oldest direct relative is 70. No living grandparents.

I have some aunts in their 80's, maybe 90's. My lady has a grandma and aunt that are both on the brink of 100.

My father is 88, his sister is 92.  On my mom's side, her oldest surviving sibling is 87.   My wife's aunt passed away two yours ago at 101, her other aunt is hanging in there at 88.

One (maternal) grandparent left living.  Last of my paternal grandparents passed away this past year.  She was 90.  Not sure how old my living grandma is.

Paternal grandfather's sister is 95, I think her mother made it to 104

Direct line decendent grandmothers just passed away within last few years at 88 each


Very aware of potential for longevity and treat my health as such

I’m almost and have been without grandparents a few years and my parents were haha young when I was born.

My uncle is 67....oldest person in mine or my wife’s side of the family.


I guess my wife has a couple aunts and an uncle in their 80’s but I’ve never even met 2 of them and there is no contact between them.

My dad would have been 81 today, but he's dead, so I don't think that counts for this thread.

You better start living it up while you can.

Or I’m almost 47 and my Dad is 64 with many many years left and mom my is 63. I’m far and away the oldest of all my cousins. My Dad’s mom passed away a few years ago at age 89. The last death prior to that was my mom’s grandma and she was 93.

And I was pointing out my situation is a bit odd
