The oldest resident of the Netherlands died in Arnhem at the age of 110. Cornelia Boonstra, who became the oldest inhabitant in the Netherlands last September, lived in a nursing home and was in poor health, Gerderlander said on Saturday.
She lived independently until she was 100 years old.
She was born on October 6, 1910 in Helweinen, Betuwe, and married in 1939. The couple had six children. Neely, as her husband knows, has been a widow since 1963.
She put her long life into working hard and living a natural life, without makeup or medication.
About 2,400 people over the age of 100 live in the Netherlands, most of them women. It is not yet clear who has the title of the oldest Dutchman.
