For those of us feeling the years creep up on us, here's 
a story about the world's oldest person that may help put 
things in perspective!


At 114, U.S. woman becomes world's oldest person
By Scott Malone

BOSTON (Reuters) - A Connecticut woman born to former 
slaves in the decades following the U.S. Civil War has 
become the world's oldest person, at 114, according to 
Guinness World Records.

Emma Faust Tillman, born near Greensboro, North Carolina,
on November 22, 1892, became the world's oldest person on 
Wednesday, following the death of Emiliano Mercado del 
Toro, of Puerto Rico, Guinness said on its Web site.

Longevity is common in Tillman's family. Though none of 
her 23 siblings have matched her 114 years, three sisters 
and a brother lived past 100, her great-nephew John 
Stewart Jr., said on Thursday.

"At 114, she's lived a good, honorable, straight life," 
said Stewart, who is 76. "Her comment is always, 'If you 
want to know about longevity and why I lived so long, 
ask the man upstairs."'

Tillman, who lives in the Hartford, Connecticut, nursing 
home she moved to at the age of 110, was not available 
for an interview.

"Sometimes, she doesn't feel like talking," Stewart said.
"But when you're 114, you can call your own shots."

Tillman never smoked, drank or wore eyeglasses, Stewart 
said.

firming exercises, that will keep your muscles strong,

Karen Chadderton, administrator of the Riverside Health 
and Rehabilitation Center, where Tillman lives, said until 
a few months ago Tillman spent much of her time caring for
an ailing roommate more than 20 years her junior, who has 
since died.

"About a month ago, she started feeling less energetic," 
said Chadderton. "During the morning she has energy, she's 
up and about, in a wheelchair, but in the afternoon, once 
she goes to sleep, she doesn't want to be bothered."

According to the International Committee on 
Supercentenarians, there are currently 86 people aged 110 
or older alive in the world today. Eighty of them are 
women.

The world's next-oldest resident is Japan's Yone Minagawa,
born in 1893, according to the ICS. Guinness World Records 
said it is still investigating that claim.
