I will (and will have to) take what God plans, but if I had the choice I'd just as soon
skip the illness part.

Somewhere between 83 and 88, if various Longevity Tests are to be believed.

My maternal grandparents lived into their 90s.
My paternal grandparents weren't so blessed.

There are several free tests online.
Just google " longevity test" or "life expectancy test".

That said, I also believe in the bon mot: "Make God laugh. Tell Him your plans."
Lead a healthy life, but keep your eyes focused on His plan.

I don't have a set amount of time that I "plan" to live, as that is up to Almighty God. I can say this much though, I would rather live a short, good, moral and sound life; rather than a long one with no purpose.
