Woman dies at 115 as world's oldest person

We featured Edna Parker, 115, back in April 2008 when she celebrated her 115th birthday in a polka-dot dress. She passed away today as the 14th oldest validated supercentenarian in history. Her grandson had this to say about her longevity,“But she's never been a worrier and she's always been a thin person, so maybe that has something to do with it.”

Maria de Jesus of Portugal, who was born Sept. 10, 1893, is now the world's oldest living person, according to the Gerontology Research Group.

We send our sympathies to Ms. Parker's family.
