The Hawkward family said they believed there was no secret in longevity, and they “liked eating butter and cream, and made fun of the idea of diets.”
Her nephew Paul Reynolds (74 years) said: “Joan comes from a good family. Her grandfather ran a law firm in London. She worked as a chef in a French hotel for nine years.”
He added, “She did not have children, but she loved to travel in a camping cart all over Europe. She was a strong-willed character and loved telling stories about how miserable she was when she was a student, pointing out that there is no secret to her long life.”
The newspaper pointed out that it is now believed that the oldest Briton alive is Lillian the priest, from Swanage Dorset, at the age of 111 years.
