Anna Natella is an Italian-born American supercentenarian born on 21 November 1912 in Irsina, Basilicata, Italy. She immigrated to the United States with her family when she was 13 years old. She lived in New York and later in Milburn, New Jersey. Natella was hard-working even as a young girl. She had to drop out of school to help support her family and she taught herself how to read and write in English using a dictionary.
Natella married in 1937 and had two daughters. In her later years, she and her husband moved to Florida. Natella eventually moved into an assisted living facility. At the age of 107, she was still able to walk unassisted and climb stairs every day.
On 11 June 2023, following the death of 113-year-old Ada Avila, she became the oldest known living person in the U.S. state of Florida.
