LongeviQuest is pleased to announce the age validation of Amelia Florence “Flo” Fuss of South Australia, Australia. She was born in Bald Hills, South Australia, Australia on 5 January 1889, and passed away in Adelaide, South Australia, Australia on 7 April 1999 at the age of 110. Mrs. Fuss was the ninth of ten children of English Parents.
She married her husband Leslie Fuss in 1911 and had 5 children (four daughters and a son). They worked on a farm until her husband’s pneumonia forced them to move to Adelaide. In 1964, her husband passed away.
On her 100th birthday, her daughters requested her birth certificate so she could receive a letter from Queen Elizabeth II on the occasion of her becoming a centenarian. However, they found out that she was three days younger – her birth was registered as occurring on January 5, instead of January 2 as they believed. She was survived by four daughters, 11 grandchildren, 20 great-grandchildren, and 10 great-great-grandchildren.
LongeviQuest congratulates Mrs. Fuss’s family on her posthumous recognition.
