Famous Centenarians Around the World Trivia Game

One couple, who lived across the street from my home in a small town in the southeastern United States, inspired and amazed me as they both lived to see their 100th birthdays. Centenarians, those who live to see triple digits, have a perspective that few people imagine. Many centenarians live simple lives, ready and willing to share their wisdom with those who take the time to sit and listen. Some become famous.

I decided to create this trivia game featuring 20 famous centenarians around the world in honor of my 100th article here on Student Survive 2 Thrive. I hope I have done these centenarians justice! Some of my family members and friends from around the globe offered suggestions for centenarians that captured their attention over the years. Many thanks to those who contributed ideas to help this article to be much richer and more interesting!
