Oldest Woman Dies @ Age 115

From Yahoo:
Tokyo, Jan 13(ANI): The world’s oldest woman, Koto Okubo has passed away in Kawasaki, Japan at the age of 115.

According to the Kawasaki Municipal Government, Okubo, who was born on Dec. 24, 1897, died on Saturday at a local nursing home, the Japan Times reported.

Okubo assumed the title of the oldest woman alive in December after the death of a 114-year-old woman in the United States and reportedly enjoyed spending time with her son, who lives at the same nursing home.

The reason for the death has not been disclosed by the officials. (ANI) (emphasis mine)
