'World’s oldest person' and last surviving woman from 1800s dies aged 124

A woman who was thought to be the world's oldest person and the last living woman born in the nineteenth century has regretfully gone away. 

Francisca Susano, also known as Lola Iska, died at her home in the Philippines on Monday, Nov. 22. She was said to be 124 years old, making her the world's oldest individual. 

On social media, the local administration in her hometown of Kabankalan, Negros Occidental, confirmed the news.

"It is with sadness in our hearts that we received the news that our dear Lola Francisca Susano died away early this Monday evening November 22," the Kabankalan City Government wrote on Facebook. 

"Mayor Pedro Zayco, Vice Mayor Raul Rivera, and other city officials, as well as all the residents of Kabankalan City, condole and pray with the family of Lola Iska during their time of mourning." 

"Lola Iska will always be an inspiration and a source of pride for us."

This supercentenarian was the world's last living individual born in the nineteenth century, according to officials. She was born on September 11, 1897, according to records.

Lola is thought to have survived this long by eating a healthy diet consisting primarily of vegetables and a small amount of meat, but no pig. 

She also attributed her long life to the fact that she did not drink alcohol. According to city public information officer Jake Carlyne Gonzales, who spoke to CNN Philippines, authorities are still unsure about the cause of Lola's death.
