The Curse

It's happened again.

World's oldest person dies at 115

An American woman who was recognised as the world's oldest person for a year has died at the age of 115.

Edna Parker died at a nursing home in Indiana, her family said.

Mrs Parker had been a widow since 1939 and had lived alone in her farmhouse until she was 100. She outlived her two sons, and had 31 other descendants.

With Mrs Parker's death, Maria de Jesus of Portugal, born in 1893, is the world's oldest person, according to the Gerontology Research Group.

Edna Parker's predecessor? Dead. The one before that? Dead. Shall we keep going?

Mark our words, Maria de Jesus of Portugal will be dead before long.
