Biography

Clara Moll was born Clara Henry in Mountain View, Missouri, United States on 19 December 1910 in a family of five siblings. Since her father was a cowboy, she came to live with her godmother when she was 5 years old. During her youth, Moll was a tomboy, as she would rather climb tress and swim across lakes than play with dolls.

She later married Alois Moll, who died at age 74. He reportedly told her: 'Clara you watch, when women all go to work there will be nobody home to cook and there will be nobody home for the kids; you’re going to have hard times.' In 1981, she was in a hospital recovering from a hysterectomy when a tornado struck her home town. Fortunately, she survived as the hospital was located on a hill.

At age 106, she said she felt fine and could read without glasses but her hearing deteriorated. At 107, she still enjoyed life, quoting: 'I’m going to live until 110'. She was still quite fit on her 109th birthday, still being able to walk and having no pain. She touted “exercise” as the secret to her longevity.

Clara Moll died in Barton, Wisconsin, United States at the age of 110 years, 75 days.
