A remarkable Japanese woman, Kane Tanaka, who held the title of the world’s oldest person since 2019, has passed away at the age of 119, according to local officials on Monday, Your Content has learned.

Born on January 2, 1903, in the southern Fukuoka region of Japan, Kane Tanaka witnessed historic milestones, including the Wright brothers’ groundbreaking flight. Throughout her long life, she shared a century of cherished memories with her husband, Hideo, and together they raised four children.

Regrettably, due to the pandemic, Ms. Tanaka was unable to participate in the Olympic torch relay, a momentous event she had eagerly awaited. However, even in her final months, she remained mentally sharp, continuing to challenge herself by solving mathematics problems.

Kane Tanaka’s passing marks the end of an extraordinary era, but her legacy as the world’s oldest person will forever inspire and captivate generations to come, according to The Daily Advent.
