World's Oldest Person Dies

Yesterday marked the passing of the world's oldest person, Eunice Sanborn.

Deeply religious, she credited her faith for her long life.

"Honey, if you have the Lord Jesus, you don't need anything else," Sanborn said shortly after being named the oldest person in the U.S. in April, according to the Daily Progress.

Taking Eunice's place as the world's oldest living person is Besse Cooper, born in 1896. Wondering what the secret to long life is? States the article, "Cooper has credited her longevity to staying away from junk food and 'minding her own business.'"

There you have it!
