Eunice Sanborn of Jacksonville, Texas, passed away today. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, she was born on July 20, 1896, making her 114 years and 195 days old. (Her family claims she was really 115.) That means she was 7 years old when the first airplane flew, and 18 years old at the beginning of World War I.
According to Wikipedia:
Sanborn credited her longevity and good health to her belief in Jesus Christ and her salvation.
