World’s oldest person, French nun Sister Andre, dies at 118 | World News

The world’s oldest person, French nun Sister Andre died at the age of 118.

His retirement home confirmed the news on Tuesday, according to Reuters.

Born Lucille Randon in 1904, a decade before the start of World War I, she took the name Sister Andre when she joined a Catholic charity order in 1944, a year before the end of World War II.

She survived two global health crises – the Spanish flu in 1918 and, in the past few years, COVID-19.

Sister Andre, celebrating her 117th birthday in February 2021 after failing health, said death did not bother her.

“No, I wasn’t afraid because I wasn’t afraid of dying,” she commented.

This birthday was celebrated with cake and prayer. “It made me so, so, so happy,” she said.

“I met all the people I loved and thank God for giving me. I thank God.”

According to the Gerontology Research Group’s World Supercentenarian Ranking List, she was the oldest living person in the world.
