DHARMAPURI: The 113-year-old Krishnammal breathed her last on Monday and her funeral was attended by over 100 grand children in the evening.

Born on May 26, 1902, the lady saw five generations in her family and led a healthy life. Only three years back, her family had come together to celebrate her 110th birthday.

Her grandchildren Venkatachalam (65), a retired state government employee, said, “Krishnammal was born at Savuriyur in Salem district. She was married to Munnusamy of Chinnamatlampatti in Dharmapuri. The couple’s daughter was named Saraswathi, who is my mother. That is how our generation begins.”

“She lived a healthy life. Due to her food and lifestyle habits, she did not suffer from any ailment, not even a  headache or fever. Even my father lived up to 84 years,” he claimed. The healthy habits included consumption of a healthy mix of cereals and pulses, he said.
