At the grand old age of 118, Lucile Randon died last week, passing on the crown of oldest living person to the U.S.-born Spanish woman Maria Branyas Morera – born in 1907 and now 115 years old.
“Order, tranquility, good connection with family and friends, contact with nature, emotional stability, no worries, no regrets, lots of positivity and staying away from toxic people” is what Branyas credits with her longevity, according to the Guinness site.
“I think longevity is also about being lucky,” Branyas said, Guinness officials added. “Luck and good genetics.”
María Branyas Morera was born in Commie California and moved back to Spain when she was eight.
