Paris. A French nun believed to be the world’s oldest has died weeks before her 119th birthday. A spokesman for his nursing home in southern France gave this information on Wednesday. Lucille Randon, better known as Sister Andre, was born on February 11, 1904, in the city of Alsace in southern France. She was one of the oldest people in the world to have recovered from Covid-19.
Spokesman David Tavella said he died at around 2 am on Tuesday at the Sainte-Catherine-Labour nursing home in the city of Toulon. The ‘Gerontology Research Group’ validates the description of people aged 110 or over. The group listed Randon as the world’s oldest known person after the death of Japan’s Ken Tanaka at the age of 119 last year. Sister Andre was infected with the corona virus in January 2021, before her 117th birthday.
But he had mild symptoms of infection, due to which he did not even realize that he was infected. His recovery from the infection was discussed worldwide including France. When asked about her extraordinary longevity, Sister Andre, a witness to two world wars, told French media in April last year that “keeping working… makes you alive”.
I worked till the age of 108. He liked to have a glass of wine and eat chocolates daily. The oldest known living person in the world is now American-born Maria Branyas Moreira, living in Spain, aged 115, as listed by the Gerontology Research Group.
