Senior Citizens, to what ages did you parents, and others of their generation, live?

I'm in my late 70s now.  My paternal grandparents died at 74 and 77.  My maternal grandmother was a widow at 28 and died at 77, my father died in hospital at 74 but mum and her siblings lived to be in their mid 90s as did my fathers siblings and their  spouses also.

I fear that today's youngsters won't do so well because of their diets, drinking, smoking and (for some) drug habits.

    My father lived to be 93.  My mother, all 4 grandparents and one of my great-grandparents, to their late 80's.

    My generation ate a lot of sugar, refined carbohydrates, drank, smoked and many did prescription drugs (tranquilizers, etc).  I think that today's youngsters at least have better health information than we did when we were young.

    They were all in their 70's except for my mom who died in her late 50's.

    I think if ppl grow up being healthy and takes better care of themselves they can live longer.

    Back in the days, folks ate a lot of fats and sugar, smokes, and drinks, which trigger to their short life span.

    Dad was 81, my paternal grandmother was 78, maternal grandmother was 87, my mother is 96 and still alive. It's not unusual for members in my family to live to 100 especially on my mom's side. her 2nd cousin celebrated her 100th bday in August!
