Kama Chinen, World’s Oldest Person, Dies at 114

Kama Chinen, the world’s oldest person, has left us at the age of 114. Just nine days before she was to turn 115 years old, the woman who reigned as the eldest on the planet has passed away.

She had officially held the title since September of last year following the death of her predecessor Gertrude Baines. Now another 114-year-old has taken over. This time the glory goes to Eugenie Blanchard of France, who was born in 1896.

It was difficult to track down information about Kama Chinen. Her family has apparently gone to great lengths to keep the details of her life and death private, Right Celebrity reports.

Ms Chinen spent her final years at a care centre in Nanjo, south-east Okinawa. She was born on May 10, 1895, according to the Gerontology Research Group.

Her family guarded her privacy closely and details regarding her death were not released to the press. Many Japanese newspapers didn't identify her by name.

Ms Chinen became the world's oldest known person when Gertrude Baines died in a Los Angeles hospital at 115 in September, The Press Association news agency says.
