World's Oldest Person - 116 Years Old

Quote:
Surrounded by friends and family, Mrs Cooper celebrated at the nursing home in Monroe, Georgia where she now lives.

The event might have been filled with balloons and birthday cake, however, according to her son Sidney Cooper, his elderly mother was keen to have a low-key occasion.

Speaking to the Guinness World Records, Mrs Cooper revealed the secrets to her longevity.

'I mind my own business and I don't eat junk food,' she commented.

Her son, meanwhile, said 'the older she has gotten the more wittier she has gotten'.
Mr Cooper said that despite her age, the supercentenarian had never undergone surgery, has 'no major health problems', taking very few medications.
Born in 1896 in Tennessee, Mrs Cooper moved to Georgia in 1917, marrying Luther Cooper in 1924 and having four children.
After the death of her husband in 1963 she never remarried and now has 12 grandchildren, as well as numerous great-grandchildren and great-great grandchildren.
Mrs Cooper lived at home until the age of 105 when she was deemed too frail to do so and moved into a nursing home.
After the death of Brazilian-born Maria Gomes Valentin in June 2011, she was named the world's oldest person.

Re: World's Oldest Person - 116 Years Old

wonder why they hold up the 2010 guinness book instead of the latest.

where's the fun in that?
I remember reading an article several years ago about a former oldest-woman-in-the-world. She attributed her longevity to a daily cup of tea laced with whisky. ( up yours, teetotalers!)

Re: World's Oldest Person - 116 Years Old

I was just going to put Bessie up myself! Her first name is Bessie.

Good for her! I don't know if I want to live that long!

Didn't people in India used to live to be in their 100s?

The 2013 issue comes out September 13th, but, you know they have advanced copies.

You can edit a copy off of my post of, "Guinness' World's Smallest Man & Woman Meet".

Probably because it was in 2010 when she made it into the Record Books? No point showing 2011/2012/2013 when it was 2010 when it happened...

Nope! Bessie is the 2013 record holder!

Re: World's Oldest Person - 116 Years Old

I would love to talk to her, get her to talk about what it was like when she was growing up. I love hearing my grandmother talk about her life.
