Elsie Thompson died on March 21
The oldest person in the United States has died at age 113, just weeks before her 114th birthday.
A spokeswoman from Elsie Thompson's church in Clearwater, Fla., said she died March 21.
The Gerontology Research Group, which verifies age information for Guinness World Records, listed Thompson as the oldest living U.S. citizen after January's death of 114-year-old Mamie Rearden of South Carolina.
She may have been here 113 years, But honestly she got out of here just in time.
You see right there why 13 is an unlucky number — you won’t get past it the second time...
“I just realized both of my grandmothers wouldve turned 104 this year”
Never contemplated it before, but my grandfather would have turned 123 this year.
My grandfathers would’ve been 116 and 106, respectively. The father of the oldest one would’ve been around 155.
