The world's seventh-oldest person. This brings Elizabeth Stefan into the top ten.
It hurts me when these people die.
It was very sad to see that she passed away... There have been so many who died at 113 this year, Corinne Dixon Taylor, Florence Finch, Helen Stetter, Shitsu Nakano, Marie-Simone Capony, Bertha Fry, and now Leila Backman Shull. I wonder, has 2007 shown a higher than average death-rate for 113 years olds?
