When you live till the age of 116, it’s hard to feel bad when you finally pass. Most of us would be happy to live to be just 90. This woman was 90 back in 1986, so she’s lasted far longer than anyone expected. In fact, she could easily have grandkids in their 70s, which makes her a walking miracle.
The woman who was listed as the world’s oldest person died Tuesday in a Georgia nursing home at age 116.
Besse Cooper died peacefully Tuesday afternoon in Monroe, according to her son Sidney Cooper. Monroe is about 45 miles east of Atlanta.
