You may remember that I wrote about Maria Esther de Capovilla, the oldest person in the world, on 16 Dec 2005. Guiness Book of World Records had listed Maria as the oldest person in the world in 2005. She was 116.

Maria passed away Monday, August 28th. She was just shy of her 117th birthday on September 14th. Her family was already planning the celebration. Although Maria was in good health, she contracted pneumonia and died two days later.

Maria lived a very full life. Now the oldest person torch passes to Elizabeth Bolden of Memphis, Tennessee. She is also 116.
