Maria Gomes Valentim, born July 1896, is crowned the world's oldest person

Post by OneDeadSlime on Wed Feb 02, 2011 2:14 am

Eunice Sanborn, with an undisputed birth date of July 20, 1896, passed away yesterday. This is extremely saddening for me and I thought it deserved a mention.
[She herself claims to have been born a year earlier; but I won't go into this now, no need to.]

On a brighter note! Besse Cooper of Georgia, just 37 days younger than Sanborn, is now recognized as the title holder. I think she can go very far!

Here's the list of the oldest verified people in the world according to the most trusted source, the Gerontology Research Group.

Around 40 people still around from the 1800s!

Wasn't a bad age for a human i guess. She certainly lived a full life. Goodluck to the new title holder Smile

Wow, the new title holder doesn't look anywhere near 115 years old.
More like 80.
I don't know if I'd want to live that long, because you'd be so frail and dependent all the time. But ah well.

I know, Mrs. Cooper is an amazing woman.

Amazing that a human can live that long. Crazy to think there are people still from the 19th century out there.

A woman from Brazil, named Maria Gomes Valentim, has had her age validated by researchers. She was born July 9, 1896, eclipsing the previous title holder, Besse Cooper (info about her on the first post), who now is only the oldest American. In fact, she has been the oldest known person since November of 2010, when Eunice Sanborn took up the title, who was 11 days younger. Lately she has been reported as being a bit frail.

At 115 years old, I'd be highly surprised if she wasn't frail Razz
