Very sorry to hear the news. sad.gif

America's oldest people seem to be having an extremely bad run of it at the moment. The title of oldest person in USA has now changed hands three times in less than a month. ohmy.gif

Is it an unusually severe winter in USA? unsure.gif

No I think it is the sicknesses going around. Lets keep in mind Mrs.Cooper died from a flu virus I believe. and Mrs. Manfredini may have died of complications of a sickness.

OMG, I can't believe this. In just a month for the United States, 1896 gets wiped out (R.I.P. Besse Cooper), 1897 gets wiped out (R.I.P. Dina Manfredini) and now 1898 gets wiped out (R.I.P. Mamie Rearden). I feel bad already. sad.gif

I was hoping she'd be with us for a long time, and she seemed so well at her last birthday. I'm impressed by her life story the way she started a second career as a social worker when she was 65 and stayed active in her church and community very late in life. She was a real class act by all accounts. RIP Mrs. Rearden.
