Olive Riley, the world’s oldest blogger, has passed away at the age of 108. Her blog, or ‘blob’ as she used to call it, had an audience of thousands from around the globe.
Her blog included a variety of thoughts and memories from her life. Born in 1899, Olive survived 2 world wars and the great depression. She worked as a station cook, a barmaid, and an egg sorter and raised three children alone.
In her last entry Olive thanked her readers for all the emails, saying she was pleased to hear from everyone and noted that she had a bad cough that she had been unable to shake off.
