Eugenie Blanchard lived a really, really long life. The 114-year-old nun—believed to be the world’s oldest person — died on Thursday in the French West Indies. Blanchard died in a hospital on Saint-Barthelemy, a French overseas territory where she was also born.
Now, an East Texan is the oldest person in the world. Eunice G. Sanborn, 114, of Jacksonville, was born on July 20, 1896, five months after Blanchard.
