french nun Sister AndrewThe world’s oldest known person died on Tuesday at the age of 118 in the southern city of Toulon.

The city’s mayor, Hubert Falco, announced the news of her death on Twitter, writing that “it is with immense sadness and emotion that I learned this evening of the death of the oldest person in the world #SisterAndré “.

The nun’s spokesman, David Tavella, said she died at 2 a.m. local time on Tuesday and lives near Toulon. “There is great sadness, but she wanted this to happen, it was her desire to join her beloved brother. For her, this is freedom,” Tavella said.

Born as Lucile Randon on February 11, 1904, Sister André has devoted most of her life to religious service, according to a statement published by Guinness in April 2022.

Before becoming a Catholic nun, she cared for children during World War II, then spent 28 years caring for orphans and the elderly in a hospital.

She was also the oldest nun to ever live, according to Guinness.

When she turned 118 in 2022, the nun received a handwritten birthday note from French President Emmanuel Macron – the 18th French president in his lifetime. There have also been 10 different popes who have presided over the Catholic Church since its birth.

She became the world’s oldest after the death of Kane Tanaka, a Japanese woman previously certified as the world’s oldest person, who died aged 119 on April 19.

The title of the oldest person on record also belongs to a Frenchwoman. Born on February 21, 1875, Jeanne Louise Calment’s life spanned 122 years and 164 days, according to Guinness World Records.
