Misao Okawa who until today was the world oldest person per Guinness Book of Records has passed away, aged 117.
Okawa died Wednesday morning in Osaka, Japan, Tadahi Uchimura—and she left behind three children, four grandchildren and six great grandchildren.
According to reports, Okawa who celebrated her birthday on 5th March had a lot of cake to eat but in the last 10 days she stopped eating. An employee at the nursing home where she had lived since 1997 told CNN that “I think eating was her motivation to live, and when she lost it, she passed away.”
May her soul rest in peace…
Meanwhile, Guiness World Records says, the oldest person ever was Jeanne Louise Calment, who died at age 122 in 1997.
Would you want to grow to 117 years? That is a little too much for some us…
