World's Oldest Woman Dies!!

| Filed under: Super SeniorsR.I.P.Sad SadAging

Oh no! The world's oldest woman has died!

Besse Cooper, the oldest person in the world, has died in her Georgia nursing home.

She was 116!

Yes, that means she was born in the 1800s!! 1896 to be exact.

Besse died peacefully after becoming sick with a stomach virus. She was having trouble breathing, was put on an oxygen tank and then died in her room about 2 p.m. that day.

When Besse turned 116, Guinness World Records interviewed her, asking her what her secret to long life was, and she said:

"I mind my own business and I don’t eat junk food."

Ha! That sure sounds like a great way to stay alive!

The new world's oldest person is now 115-year-old Dina Manfredini of Johnston, Iowa.

We're sad to hear Besse is gone but we bet she sure packed a hell of a lot of living into her over a century on this earth!

Check out the video (above) to learn a little bit more about the former world's oldest woman.

RIP - Besse Cooper
