Sandy Allen, 1955-2008
Sandy Allen, at seven foot seven and a quarter inches the tallest woman in the world, dead at the age of 53. Allen died at a nursing home in Shelbyville, Indiana. Springfield, once again, loses out.
I suspect that 53 is a pretty good age for someone of such outsize proportions. Robert Wadlow made it only to 22.
