Granny Sana, She Shall be Missed (game)
Banished Update:

  Granny Sana passed away today at the age of 82. She was one of the original settlers of her village and was a pillar of the community. Her fishing helped provide some of the food necessary for them to keep going and was something she enjoyed into her later years. Sana was never one to let old age slow her down, having re-married 3 times after the age of 63. She is survived by her children and her (fourth) husband Ambrosendo.

  Jason started playing the game, Banished, yesterday and has built a village. Through the course of the game, you can follow your villagers, see what they're up to, and general information about them. At some point today, he noticed that Sana was pretty old compared to everyone else...and wasn't dying. We became pretty attached to her, noticing how she moved with almost unseemly haste following the death of each husband. (In one case, she moved house & left all her belongings behind, including quite a lot of food!) Just when we began to believe she was immortal, the unthinkable happened. She died of old age in the early summer and I almost cried. So long, Sana, you will be missed. Now we'll track someone else & see if anyone can beat your record.
