She experienced two world wars and countless other historical events: the world’s oldest person, a French nun, has now died. The title now goes to a Spanish.

Toulon – The oldest person in the world, the French nun André, has died. She was 118 years old, as the mayor of her southern French city of Toulon, Hubert Falco, wrote on Facebook Tuesday night.

Sister André died on the night of Monday to Tuesday at the nursing home, the French news agency AFP reported, citing the spokesman for the woman born Lucile Randon.

Since the end of April last year, the Gerontology Research Group has listed Sister André as the oldest living person, previously as the oldest European. With her death, María Branyas Morera, 115 years old and resident in Spain, is now the oldest person in the world in the ranking of the Association of Researchers.

Sister André was born on February 11, 1904 in Alès. The French woman worked as a tutor in her youth and she only entered a religious order at age 40. Most recently, Sister André was in a wheelchair, she had not been able to see well for several years. She is an honorary citizen of the city of Toulon, where she has lived in the house for several years. Mayor Falco praised her as “incredibly modern” and a “nun with a big heart”. dpa
