A 105-YEAR-OLD woman hanged herself after telling her family she was tired of waiting to die.
Friends said great-great-great-grand Anastasia Khoreva had been depressed after being struck down with a lung infection.
The pensioner waited until her family had left the house then used a clothes line to fashion a makeshift noose in her bedroom.
Anastasia, from Darsun, Russia, had lived through the Russian Revolution, two world wars and the mass executions of communist tyrant Joseph Stalin.
One neighbour said: "It's a strange thing to do at her time of life but she used to say she was fed up with waiting for death — so she wanted to go and meet it".
A family member added: "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".
