Most people on earth would be petrified at the very thought of death, however, here is the case of a Centenarian who got so fed up of ‘waiting for death’ that she took her own life.
After informing her family that she was tired of waiting to die, the 105-year old Anastasia Khoreva took a rope and hanged herself. According to friends of the great-great-great-gran had been miserable and low after her health took a beating with a lung infection.

Since the pensioner knew that none of her family members would allow her to do anything harmful to herself, she waited till they had gone out of the house and she was alone. After which she got hold of a clothes line to create a temporary noose in her bedroom and hanged herself.
Originally from Darsun in Russia, Anastasia Khoreva had quite an eventful life. During her life time she saw the Russian Revolution, World Wars I and II, and the mass executions of communist dictator Joseph Stalin.
According to one neighbor, it’s rather strange that she took this step at this time of her life; however, “she used to say she was fed up with waiting for death — so she wanted to go and meet it."
Meanwhile a family member informed: "She'd tried once before saying she'd had enough, but that time we managed to stop her.” “This time we weren't so lucky," she added.
Basically Khoreva seemed to be like the cat with nine lives, apparently looking almost as if she had an eternal life. It’s really tragic that she finally had to take a decision to end her life before the Maker himself could make up his mind.
