World's Oldest Woman

A 114-year-old Indiana woman became the world’s oldest person this week.

She celebrated the distinction with a slice of her favorite cake: white cake, decorated with sugar flowers.

Edna Parker, who has outlived her husband, children and siblings was confirmed as the world’s oldest known person when a Japanese woman four months her senior died on Aug. 13, 2007.

Parker shook her head when reminded of her feat of longevity, saying, “it’s hard to believe.”

Parker was born April 20, 1893. She said she’s never drank alcohol or tried tobacco and has led an active life.
