Longtime Chicago Cubs fan Mabel Ball held on just long enough to see her team win the World Series in Game 7 against the Cleveland Indians.

Six days later, on Tuesday, she passed away a happy woman.

“The cruel irony, the almost unbelievable irony, is that the person who waits and waits and waits, after it happens, says, ‘I’ve done what I’ve got to do, and I’m out of here,’” her son Rich, told the Chicago Tribune’s Irv Leavitt. “It ain’t funny, but it’s funny.”

 

Before she passed away, she was interviewed by the Tribune and was asked about her new-found celebrity as one of the oldest living Cubs fan.  Her response was clear.

“It’s a lot of nonsense,” she told him.
