The oldest person in the world, a 117-year-old woman from Japan, has died.

The woman, named Nabi Tajima, died of natural causes in a hospital in the town of Kikai in southern Japan on Saturday, according to her town’s mayor.

Tajima was born on August 4, 1900, and was the last known person alive who was born in the 19th century.

She was also the last known surviving person who was born in the former Japanese province of Kagoshima.

Tajima had nine children, 20 grandchildren, and 25 great-grandchildren. Her oldest son, 85-year-old Kikuo Tajima, told the Associated Press that his mother “didn’t look like she was that old.”

“She died without suffering. That’s good,” Kikuo Tajima said.

The oldest person in the world is now a 116-year-old woman from the United States.
