Believe it or not but Walter Breuning is 114 years old, but even 114 does NOT make him the oldest person in the world. A woman believed to be the world’s oldest person has died. A funeral home in Jacksonville, Texas says Eunice G. Sanborn died Monday in her home at the age of 114.Sanborn’s caretaker, David French, did not immediately respond to a message for comment.

The Los Angeles-based Gerontology Research Group listed Sanborn as the world’s oldest person, based on data from the 1900 census.

Group official Robert Young says the title now passes to Besse Cooper of Georgia, who is 114 years and five months old.

Walter Breuning of Great Falls, Mont., is now the second-oldest person in the world. He is 26 days younger than Cooper.
