Star Trek fans can you explain how Spock's mother is still alive in the next generation ?

Spock's mother and father alive in original series.  approximately 75 to 80 years passed between the original series and the next generation. I can understand Spock and his dad being alive.  I don't understand how his mother could be alive if she's human she should be long dead and gone.  Yes I know it's a TV show and I know it's fictitious but I just wanted an answer.

    As someone else already answered, Sarek's first wife (or whichever one, Spock's mother) was not on that show.  It was Perrin, a different wife.  No explanation was given for what happened to the other one.

    If you remember in the first episode of TNG, Bones from the original series was still alive too. I think they explain at some point that humans life span has increased. Also yeah like the other guy said she had already died and his father remarried. I’m looking at the Star Trek wiki for his mother’s age, and it says she was born in 2210, got married at age 20, and died at 156. That’s a long marriage.

    I don't think she is.  I think you're talking about 'Perrin' from the episode 'Sarek'.  This is NOT Spock's mother.  Vulcan's are long-lived, and Amanda, Spock's mother, has died.  Sarek remarried another human woman, Perrin.
