BIOGRAPHY

Anna Natella was born as Anna Boffilo in Irsina, Matera, Basilicata, Italy, on 21 November 1912.

At the age of 13, Natella and her family emigrated to the United States, and she went on to live in New York, and later in Milburn, New Jersey. As a young girl, Natella was hard-working. She was forced to drop out of school to help support her family. She used a dictionary to learn how to read and write in English.

In 1937, she married Dominic Natella. The couple had two daughters: Mary and Cynthia. In her later years, Natella and her husband moved to Florida. Her husband passed away in April 1974. Natella eventually moved into an assisted living facility. At the age of 107, she was still able to walk unassisted, and was also still able to walk on the stairs every day.

Anna Natella currently lives in Fort Myers, Florida, USA.
