life on the edge of cool

World’s oldest woman dies just shy of 115 years.

The world’s oldest woman died yesterday. Maria Gomes Valentim came down with pneumonia just a few days before her 115th birthday, having been born in 1896 and lived in Carangola, Brazil for her entire life. Now Besse Cooper of Monroe, Georgia hold the Guinness World Records title as oldest woman alive, a title she previously held until Valentim’s age was confirmed.
