Some sad news out of Jamaica: the world’s oldest person has died. 

Violet Mosse-Brown was 117 years old, born on March 10, 1900, in Jamaica.

The prime minister of Jamaica, Andrew Holness, posted about Mosse-Brown’s death Friday evening.

With her death, Japanese 117-year-old Nabi Tajima is now the known oldest human on the planet. She was born on Aug. 4, 1900, in Japan, a few months after Mosse-Brown.

Mosse-Brown held the title of oldest living person for only a few months. She had been given the honor back in April when Italy’s Emma Morano died, also at the age of 117. 

Mosse-Brown told a local Jamaican news outlet that she didn’t have a secret to longevity, but she hinted at some tricks. “When people ask what me eat and drink to live so long, I say to them that I eat everything, except pork and chicken, and I don’t drink rum and them things,” she said back in April.

Here’s to a very long life lived well.
