Just seen this and you beat me to it!

Looks legit. The IP address of the editor is in Brighton, where Maranne was based.

Can't find anything on FB, Twitter or via Google. @msc anyone your end who could confirm? Hadoke?

 

No, I wouldn't hear till later if true. Its a one time only edit on Wiki made from Brighton, though.

U.S. politician Lester Wolff has supposedly died aged 103. Wouldn’t be surprised if it’s true given this was him last month.

Confirmation from Politico.

So yesterday was a triple centenarian death day – Gouri Amma, Lloyd and Wolff.

Edit: Also worth noting, Wolff was the last member of either houses of Congress who was born in the 1910s.

As much as I would like to believe this is actually Lester typing this, I think this is either a satirical account or actually Lester Wolff's account but someone (maybe a family member or a caregiver) typing as him here.

One from my centenarians longlist:

Former Senior Vice President of the University of Southern California, Anthony Lazzaro (wiki), supposedly dead at 100.

T. M. Kaliannan (wiki) supposedly dead at 100.

Indian politician and the last living member of India's first parliament (1950–1952).

Bad year for India. Losing loads of their famous centenarians. Just a handful left now.

And if Kaliannan is dead, means that India hasn't gotten any or nearly any new notable centenarians born in the first half of 2021.

 

Wikipedia's list of living centenarians mentions 10 alive, the ones born before 1919 are:

 

Ayiappan Pillai (b. 1914) Oldest bar of India member, Bharatiya Janata party vice president.

Lambert Mascarenhas (b. 1914) Independence movement activist

Man Kaur (b. 1916) Athlete

Shyam Saran Negi (b. 1917) First person to cast vote at the 1951 election.

B. B. Lal and P. K. Warrier are two brand new Indian centenarians. They also have Fauja Singh and Saalumarada Thimmakka who are likely over 100.

 

Surely Chinese centenarians were left unscathed last year: Ma Shitu, Song Ping, Yang You, Wan Haifeng, Zou Yu, Zheng Min and now Xu Yuanchong seem indestructible. Wang Xiji is joining them in July.

Kay Hawtrey, Canadian actress died yesterday (27th June) at the age of 93 according to an edit that has now been reverted.

Seems to have taken on mainly minor roles. Appeared in Police Academy 4 and was one time married to English actor John Clark (b. 1932).


Kay Hawtrey actually dead this time.
