BBC News just trailed they will be speaking to Grace Jones, Britain's oldest dame, about the Armistice.

 

She will then perform Private Life and Slave To The Rhythm.

Tried looking for some of the world's oldest people for cheap hits, but after the mass exodus of the previous years, I think we're in for a bit of a drought there...

 

Disney animator, Ruthie Thompson, still on for game day:

Polish athlete Stanislaw Kowalski, still standing for his 108th birthday in April:

StanisÅaw Kowalski koÅczy 108 lat!

 

Italian composer Cecilia Seghizzi looking quite happy celebarting her 110th birthday in September:

Consideration starts with the eminently obitable WW II resistance fighter Georges Loinger (also featured in the future movie "Resistance")

 

On the 110 club site there is a vast amount of pictures for oldest notable person Qin Hanzhang.

Kane Tanaka
02 Jan 1903
Lives in Fukuoka, Japan
Oldest living person, 20th oldest ever

07.thumb.PNG.6ff8b073103fc8307538846bfa281253.PNG

One of the most remarkable Oldest Person titleholders for some time. She can walk at the pace of a young person, tell jokes, sing, participate in press conferences, solve maths questions, play Othello, fold clothes and do the Japanese favourite - hand dancing. She's going to be around for a while.

 


 

Maria-Giuseppa Robucci-Nargiso (Nonna Peppa for short)
20 Mar 1903
Lives in Apulia, Italy
Oldest living European, 2nd oldest living person, 22nd oldest ever
IMG_20181114_233244.png.ae5e48d145bb171989b99a7e5eb83af7.png

The title of Oldest in Europe is traditionally a QO shoo-in, but sadly this didn't happen for her predecessor Giuseppina Projetto. She's a very happy person who still makes public appearances, but there seems to have been a slight decline in her health.

 

 

 

Shimoe Akiyama
19 May 1903
Lives in Nagoya, Japan
3rd oldest living, 28th oldest ever
 

No photo, no nothing. This may change if she one day becomes the oldest person in Japan, but Tanaka is making that more unlikely with every passing day.

 

 

 

Magdalena Oliver Gabarró
31 Oct 1903
Lives in Barcelona, Spain
Oldest Spaniard, would-be 42nd oldest ever
7929335832_7cbf4033f7_b.thumb.jpg.9540d0af27a8a01927ecfc7ff287445f.jpg

Unverified. It has been hinted on the 110 Club that her potential verification is imminent. She looked well the last time she was pictured, but that was 2 years ago.

 

 

 

Annalise or Annelise
03 Dec 1903
Lives in Nanuet, USA
Challenger to title of oldest American
FB_IMG_1543759194677.jpg.4a296e615bf7e1a599ce297b3a98db73.jpg

The fact that we don't even know the spelling of this woman's first name should tell you all you need to know. However, she might be the oldest American.

 

 

 

Lucile Randon (Soeur Andre)
11 Feb 1904
Lives in Toulon, France
Oldest Frenchie, 4th oldest living, 52nd oldest ever, oldest nunsoeur-andre-e1508509437967.thumb.jpg.64e88f20d6a6a54c458f50d78332c312.jpg

The real oldest nun, as pointed out after Sister Cecylia died. Confusingly, the oldest nun ever was Sister Cecilia (1902-2017). Soeur Andre may take this title in June.

 

 

 

Shin Matsushita
30 Mar 1904
Lives in Sendai, Japan
5th oldest living, 62nd oldest ever, oldest person to outlive a pet
hd10-1.jpg.b66abfeb57dc4f3e568e4e0c89fa9ba5.jpg

Yes, this dog is dead. To be honest, Shin has appeared downbeat since this happened, and what's the point in going on if you're 114 and you just lost your dog?

 

 

 

Gabrielle Valentine des Robert
04 Jun 1904
Lives in Nantes, France
6th oldest living, 86th oldest ever
valent11.thumb.jpg.27fa788fa3b75c31983f8390b7de80f3.jpg

She is living proof that fat people aren't destined to die young. Isn't in the best of shape, mind you.

 

 

 

Lessie Brown
22 Sep 1904

7th oldest living, Believed to be oldest American
284874111_maxresdefault(1).thumb.jpg.99cc0f9ccf8e8c4f30ca3f1b5906cc07.jpg

Though her family adore her, I struggle to believe you can enjoy life in such poor condition.

 

 

 

Jeanne Bot
14 Jan 1905
Lives in Perpignan, France
8th oldest living
Jeanne_Bot.jpg.d003edbe18d32161b33ff55e9f87424c.jpg

When I first heard about this woman a few months ago, I thought she was an android designed to shut down at the age of 122. It appears not. She is very healthy and can still walk around her own home.

 

 

 

Shigeyo Nakachi
01 Feb 1905
Lives in Saga, Japan
9th oldest living
Shigeyo_Nakachi_113.jpg.90535beb76ff376c2b9d1670063963f3.jpg

Winner of "sunniest old person in the world". Never seen without a big smile on her face. She is almost profoundly deaf and communicates by reading off a tablet and shouting her response.

 

 

 

Haruno Yamashita
19 Feb 1905
Lives in Kurume, Japan
10th oldest living
Haruno_Yamashita.png.e99d10f2c5a6611906640a0ed28a4384.png

A mystery.

 

 

 

Ellen "Dolly" Gibb
26 Apr 1905
Lives in North Bay, Canada
Oldest Canadian
EGibb.png.8199ab748ea327e454a1609359b3af17.png

Some photos of her are quite unflattering, but she is holding up well.

 

 

 

Alelia Murphy
06 Jul 1905
Lives in Harlem, USA
2nd oldest American
AleliaMurphy.jpg.d909ddbc2914b8c567226bfb27e31b07.jpg

Has been mentioned before as she defied death by coming back from the dreaded Limbo. She may or may not be next in line to the Oldest American throne. That Party City tiara does not reflect this title.

 

 

 

Masazō Nonaka
25 Jul 1905
Lives in Ashoro, Japan
Oldest man, 14th oldest man ever
43528141_1815760345203339_2722565251944939520_n.jpg.17a92f41c32974e7db5f20190a0d79f9.jpg

Old boy is enjoying his 10+ month reign as Oldest Man but is noticeably frail.

 

 

 

Iris Westman
28 Aug 1905
Lives in Grand Forks, USA
Oldest highly educated person
1vm-7ltdcnz7ftybwytourwl9ybah3de.jpg.957ebb82e0cda0bb57a62f56b14a9f22.jpg

She graduated from the University of North Dakota in 1928 and went on to teach. Maybe if she gets old enough then some tabloids will pick up on this.

 

 

 

Gustav Gerneth
15 Oct 1905?
Lives in Havelberg, Germany
Would-be 2nd oldest man, 16th oldest man ever, oldest German person ever
1911570998_4w993qhighc0_bild.jpg.3a001a6732322e0adcd12d41dfb2220f.jpg

A recent picture (which won't upload) doesn't say good things about his physical health. He is looking forward to his 114th birthday in October 2019, but doubts have been cast on his claimed age. Beware.

 

 

 

Kura Bingo

Richard Overton

1508517308-rbz-Richard-Overton-18.jpg.14b1ca21ed3c2faf49cbed66eb9526db.jpg

Has now survived pneumonia an incredible 5 times! He has been noticeably quiet in an ominous way for a few months. I love the man, but it might all be Over soon...

 

 

 

Tekla Juniewicz
10 Jun 1906
Lives in Gliwice, Poland
Oldest Pole ever
Tekla-Juniewicz-112-wjk-650x431.png.4986cada979daab7b86c710d3512edea.png

The first Polish person to ever live to 112. Here she is with Waclaw, a GRG/110 Club admin.

 

 

 

Mazie Ford
28 Jun 1906
Lives in Hollywood (that's Florida), USA
Oldest volunteer
aFDVgEb.thumb.jpg.ab0c9102d017a2b8ee3ae3aef1091558.jpg

She dresses herself, does her wig and makeup, knits babies' hats and takes them to her local hospital almost every day! She's amazing for her age!

 

 

 

Grace Catherine Jones
16 Sep 1906
Lives in Broadway (that's Worcestershire), UK
Oldest Brit, 3rd oldest Grace Jones ever
GettyImages-86099301.thumb.jpg.252b0478683afaa8ee551bc9410c5fd8.jpg

No, wrong one...

Not that one, she died in 2006...

Uf7GSl6.jpg.cdedc00a3f19618f4def98e757199d24.jpg

That's our wummin! She is lovely and is able to give long interviews.

Where's a bullshit button when you need one?

His age is NOT accurate. Yet his ability to bounce back from multiple hospitalisations is superb. After a fifth hospitalisation for the same ailment, he's tied with Richard Overton.

 

 

 

Qin Hanzhang
19 Feb 1908?
Lives in Beijing, China
Oldest notable person
vOJjewQ.thumb.jpg.260e8194ccf7896de1973769d39b4719.jpg

Although the chances of a Chinese person being verified are low, we can pretty much confirm that he's as old as he claims. He is known for developing methods for producing wine. I would like to think that he is partly responsible for grape stomping, which inspired my 2nd favourite news blooper.

 

 

 

Alf Smith and Bob Weighton
29 Mar 1908
Live in St Madoes and Alton, UK
Joint oldest British men
Alf is the first supercentenarian Scotsman
skynews-alfred-smith-robert-weighton_4267845.thumb.jpg.59c734eebdeb859b153e4b013440d850.jpg

It's no secret that Alf isn't doing as well as Bob (I believe he had a stroke a few years ago) but I wish both of them well.

 

 

 

Cecilia Seghizzi
05 Sep 1908
Lives in Gorizia, Italy
Oldest notable woman
Cecilia_Seghizzi.jpg.3e1ec1a1a4d30d0266272770867869db.jpg

Known for being an artist and composer. The Guardian would like her. Anyway, she is doing great.

 

 

 

 

Dr. Robert Wiener
27 Oct 1908
Lives in Montreal, Canada
Oldest Canadian man, one half of oldest brothers ever, oldest doctor
777106076_image(6).jpg.6d874c45edaa1d8be7583c8955697af5.jpg

Pathologist whose older brother David fell just shy of 110. He still rides his exercise bike daily and works very closely with his doctor to improve his health. He's quite charming and he's not ready to slow down yet.

 

 

 

Agnes Kluckhenn
01 Apr 1909
Lives in unknown location in Australia
Oldest Aussie

 

Does this woman even exist? I'm not convinced. At just 109 she's a youngster compared to others, but you know what they say about Australians and Mail obits.

J'ai été informé par sa famille du décès de Mlle des Robert survenu le 3 décembre à 1H15. Elle a été victime dans la journée de samedi d'un problème de déglutition qui a nécessité sa mise sous assistance respiratoire.
Elle avait 114 ans et 182 jours dépassant de 2 jours Camille Loiseau. Elle est donc devenue la 7e personne la plus âgée de tous les temps en France.
I was informed by her family of the death of Miss des Robert on the 3rd of December at 1:15am. On Saturday she fell victim to a swallowing problem which necessitated putting her under a breathing aid. She was 114 years and 182 days; 2 days older than Camille Loiseau, so she became the 7th oldest person of all time in France.

To my knowledge, no man or woman has been categorically proved to have lived to the age of 128. The most widely accepted record holder is Jeanne Calment who died a few years ago aged 122. Before her there was a Japanese man who lived to 120. So it's possible that a 115 year old is the world's oldest living person.

 

Sill not really famous though.


But wait!

One researcher is calling Calment's claim bullshit.
"But a Russian mathematician is casting doubt on her record. Nikolay Zak, of the Moscow Center For Continuous Mathematical Education, said in a report that he believes that Calment was actually Yvonne Calment, Jeanne’s daughter, who had assumed her mother’s identity to avoid inheritance taxes in the 1930s. That would have made her 99 when she died."

Would think that if someone who received constant media attention throughout the last decade of her life and had more verification done of her age than any other supercentenarian wasn't the real deal, a smoking gun to fraud would've popped up much sooner, but that's just me.

Has now survived pneumonia an incredible 5 times! He has been noticeably quiet in an ominous way for a few months. I love the man, but it might all be Over soon...

Oldest Pole ever
Tekla-Juniewicz-112-wjk-650x431.png.4986cada979daab7b86c710d3512edea.png

The first Polish person to ever live to 112. Here she is with Waclaw, a GRG/110 Club admin.

Lives in Hollywood (that's Florida), USA
Oldest volunteer
aFDVgEb.thumb.jpg.ab0c9102d017a2b8ee3ae3aef1091558.jpg

She dresses herself, does her wig and makeup, knits babies' hats and takes them to her local hospital almost every day! She's amazing for her age!

 

 

 

Grace Catherine Jones

Lives in Broadway (that's Worcestershire), UK
Oldest Brit, 3rd oldest Grace Jones ever

No, wrong one...

GJones3.jpg.f21f60286827c96cfd99b2af84728634.jpg

Not that one, she died in 2006...

Grace-Adelaide-Jones.jpg.3b4cb1cfc082cd594feb625302b4f1e1.jpg

Close but not her either, she's dead anol...

That's our wummin! She is lovely and is able to give long interviews.

His age is NOT accurate. Yet his ability to bounce back from multiple hospitalisations is superb. After a fifth hospitalisation for the same ailment, he's tied with Richard Overton.

 

 

 

Qin Hanzhang
19 Feb 1908?
Lives in Beijing, China
Oldest notable person
vOJjewQ.thumb.jpg.260e8194ccf7896de1973769d39b4719.jpg

Although the chances of a Chinese person being verified are low, we can pretty much confirm that he's as old as he claims. He is known for developing methods for producing wine. I would like to think that he is partly responsible for grape stomping, which inspired my 2nd favourite news blooper.

 

 

 

Alf Smith and Bob Weighton
29 Mar 1908
Live in St Madoes and Alton, UK
Joint oldest British men
Alf is the first supercentenarian Scotsman
skynews-alfred-smith-robert-weighton_4267845.thumb.jpg.59c734eebdeb859b153e4b013440d850.jpg

It's no secret that Alf isn't doing as well as Bob (I believe he had a stroke a few years ago) but I wish both of them well.

 

 

 

Cecilia Seghizzi

Lives in Gorizia, Italy
Oldest notable woman
Cecilia_Seghizzi.jpg.3e1ec1a1a4d30d0266272770867869db.jpg

Known for being an artist and composer. The Guardian would like her. Anyway, she is doing great.

 

 

 

 

Dr. Robert Wiener

Oldest Canadian man, one half of oldest brothers ever, oldest doctor
777106076_image(6).jpg.6d874c45edaa1d8be7583c8955697af5.jpg

Pathologist whose older brother David fell just shy of 110. He still rides his exercise bike daily and works very closely with his doctor to improve his health. He's quite charming and he's not ready to slow down yet.

 

 

 

Agnes Cluckhenn
01 Apr 1909
Lives in unknown location in Australia
Oldest Aussie

 

Does this woman even exist? I'm not convinced. At just 109 she's a youngster compared to others, but you know what they say about Australians and Mail obits.

Nice work but Gustav Gerneth looks totally okay in his most recent picture.

Kane Tanaka
02 Jan 1903
Lives in Fukuoka, Japan
Oldest living person, 20th oldest ever

07.thumb.PNG.6ff8b073103fc8307538846bfa281253.PNG

One of the most remarkable Oldest Person titleholders for some time. She can walk at the pace of a young person, tell jokes, sing, participate in press conferences, solve maths questions, play Othello, fold clothes and do the Japanese favourite - hand dancing. She's going to be around for a while.

 


 

Maria-Giuseppa Robucci-Nargiso (Nonna Peppa for short)
20 Mar 1903
Lives in Apulia, Italy
Oldest living European, 2nd oldest living person, 22nd oldest ever
IMG_20181114_233244.png.ae5e48d145bb171989b99a7e5eb83af7.png

The title of Oldest in Europe is traditionally a QO shoo-in, but sadly this didn't happen for her predecessor Giuseppina Projetto. She's a very happy person who still makes public appearances, but there seems to have been a slight decline in her health.

 

 

 

Shimoe Akiyama
19 May 1903
Lives in Nagoya, Japan
3rd oldest living, 28th oldest ever
 

No photo, no nothing. This may change if she one day becomes the oldest person in Japan, but Tanaka is making that more unlikely with every passing day.

 

 

 

Magdalena Oliver Gabarró
31 Oct 1903
Lives in Barcelona, Spain
Oldest Spaniard, would-be 42nd oldest ever
7929335832_7cbf4033f7_b.thumb.jpg.9540d0af27a8a01927ecfc7ff287445f.jpg

Unverified. It has been hinted on the 110 Club that her potential verification is imminent. She looked well the last time she was pictured, but that was 2 years ago.

 

 

 

Annalise or Annelise
03 Dec 1903
Lives in Nanuet, USA
Challenger to title of oldest American
FB_IMG_1543759194677.jpg.4a296e615bf7e1a599ce297b3a98db73.jpg

The fact that we don't even know the spelling of this woman's first name should tell you all you need to know. However, she might be the oldest American.

 

 

 

Lucile Randon (Soeur Andre)
11 Feb 1904
Lives in Toulon, France
Oldest Frenchie, 4th oldest living, 52nd oldest ever, oldest nunsoeur-andre-e1508509437967.thumb.jpg.64e88f20d6a6a54c458f50d78332c312.jpg

The real oldest nun, as pointed out after Sister Cecylia died. Confusingly, the oldest nun ever was Sister Cecilia (1902-2017). Soeur Andre may take this title in June.

 

 

 

Shin Matsushita
30 Mar 1904
Lives in Sendai, Japan
5th oldest living, 62nd oldest ever, oldest person to outlive a pet
hd10-1.jpg.b66abfeb57dc4f3e568e4e0c89fa9ba5.jpg

Yes, this dog is dead. To be honest, Shin has appeared downbeat since this happened, and what's the point in going on if you're 114 and you just lost your dog?

 

 

 

Gabrielle Valentine des Robert

Lives in Nantes, France
6th oldest living, 86th oldest ever
valent11.thumb.jpg.27fa788fa3b75c31983f8390b7de80f3.jpg

She is living proof that fat people aren't destined to die young. Isn't in the best of shape, mind you.

 

 

 

Lessie Brown

284874111_maxresdefault(1).thumb.jpg.99cc0f9ccf8e8c4f30ca3f1b5906cc07.jpg

Though her family adore her, I struggle to believe you can enjoy life in such poor condition.

 

 

 

Jeanne Bot
14 Jan 1905
Lives in Perpignan, France
8th oldest living
Jeanne_Bot.jpg.d003edbe18d32161b33ff55e9f87424c.jpg

When I first heard about this woman a few months ago, I thought she was an android designed to shut down at the age of 122. It appears not. She is very healthy and can still walk around her own home.

 

 

 

Shigeyo Nakachi
01 Feb 1905
Lives in Saga, Japan
9th oldest living
Shigeyo_Nakachi_113.jpg.90535beb76ff376c2b9d1670063963f3.jpg

Winner of "sunniest old person in the world". Never seen without a big smile on her face. She is almost profoundly deaf and communicates by reading off a tablet and shouting her response.

 

 

 

Haruno Yamashita
19 Feb 1905
Lives in Kurume, Japan
10th oldest living
Haruno_Yamashita.png.e99d10f2c5a6611906640a0ed28a4384.png

Lives in North Bay, Canada
Oldest Canadian
EGibb.png.8199ab748ea327e454a1609359b3af17.png

Some photos of her are quite unflattering, but she is holding up well.

 

 

 

Alelia Murphy
06 Jul 1905
Lives in Harlem, USA
2nd oldest American
AleliaMurphy.jpg.d909ddbc2914b8c567226bfb27e31b07.jpg

Has been mentioned before as she defied death by coming back from the dreaded Limbo. She may or may not be next in line to the Oldest American throne. That Party City tiara does not reflect this title.

 

 

 

Masazō Nonaka
25 Jul 1905
Lives in Ashoro, Japan
Oldest man, 14th oldest man ever

Old boy is enjoying his 10+ month reign as Oldest Man but is noticeably frail.

 

 

 

Iris Westman
28 Aug 1905
Lives in Grand Forks, USA
Oldest highly educated person
1vm-7ltdcnz7ftybwytourwl9ybah3de.jpg.957ebb82e0cda0bb57a62f56b14a9f22.jpg

She graduated from the University of North Dakota in 1928 and went on to teach. Maybe if she gets old enough then some tabloids will pick up on this.

 

 

 

Gustav Gerneth

Would-be 2nd oldest man, 16th oldest man ever, oldest German person ever
1911570998_4w993qhighc0_bild.jpg.3a001a6732322e0adcd12d41dfb2220f.jpg

A recent picture (which won't upload) doesn't say good things about his physical health. He is looking forward to his 114th birthday in October 2019, but doubts have been cast on his claimed age. Beware.

Not really famous, but what a moniker!
