Linnea Hörlén is dead according wikipedia, I didn't find any source, anyway I think it's only a matter of time...

 

Congratulations @Predictor


Far from me to tell you how to run your own dead pool but I shall offer my opinion anyway, for what it’s worth.
 

Why on earth would you award points according to an edit on Wikipedia, without waiting for a credible source (or at the very least a FB or Twitter post)?
 

If I wanted to, I could kill off any of the centenarians you’ve listed on page 1 here from a fresh IP in seconds and make it look like a semi credible edit to the page. It isn’t hard.

There's also an author named Lotte Strauss b. 1913. death date unknown, so she might still be alive. ( but probably wouldn't obit anyway) 

I changed Robert to Ronald now, and dropped Lee Teng-hui.

 

Lotte Strauss dead at 107.

My pick Lotte Strauss appears to have died, her wikipage was updated on 28th April. No date of death but  the entry has been changed to 'Lotte Strauss was...'

@Bibliogryphon we need change John Lysak using a sub, because he died before we picked.

I changed it for my second sub Gottfried Böhm
