A 116-year-old woman listed by Guinness World Records as the oldest living person died on Tuesday in a nursing home in Georgia.
Besse Cooper died peacefully at the Park Place nursing home in Monroe, Georgia, according to her son Sidney Cooper. "She looked real good when she passed away," the 77-year-old Cooper told Reuters, saying his mother died quietly and without suffering.
"She got up this morning, had a big old breakfast and got her hair fixed," he said. "It's just like she got up planning to do it."
He said his mother, who taught school until her first child was born in 1929, had four children. All of them survived her and are still in good health, he said.
