I just picked this up on MSN -
QUITO, Ecuador - Maria Esther de Capovilla, a 116-year-old woman believed to have been the world’s oldest person, has died in her native Ecuador, her granddaughter said Monday. Her successor is likely a woman from Tennessee.
Interesting, isnt it in light of the 1914 Generation prophesy? She must have been born in 1890, so could have been a legitimate member of the "Generation that saw and understood the events of 1914". Probably not many of them left now.
