117-Year-Old Jamaican Woman Is Now Oldest Human In The World
At 117 years old, Violet Mosses Brown is the new oldest person in the world. Little does the public know, but she eats what she wants — well, everything except pork and chicken. On Saturday, Brown became the world’s oldest person after the death of 117-year-old Emma Morano of Italy.
Born in March 1900, Brown once told a hometown newspaper, the Gleaner, that hard work, devotion to the Baptist church and respect for family, life and people in general have helped her live a long and happy life.
“Honor your mother and father so your days may be long,” she said, quoting the Old Testament.
