The death of “Sister Andre” .. the oldest person in the world at the age of 118 years

The oldest person in the world, the French nun Lucille Randon, died at the age of 118 in France, according to the nursing home where she lived.

Randon, who bore the nickname "Sister Andre" when she joined a Catholic charity group in 1944, recovered from the coronavirus last year.

The French nun was born on February 11, 1904 and was the oldest living person in the world, according to the Aging Research Group's global list of centenarians.

"She passed away at two o'clock in the morning (Tuesday)," said David Tavella, media officer at the "Saint Catherine Laboure" nursing home, where Randon was staying.

There is great sadness, but she wanted to die. She wanted to meet her beloved brother again.”

And she recounted in April 2022, when she was named “the dean of the age of humanity” after she held the title at the French and European levels: “It is said that work kills, but for me, work made me continue. I worked until the age of one hundred and eight.”
