October 15, 2017; Violet Brown died on September 15, 2017 at the age of 117 years, 189 days. She became the oldest living person in the world upon the death of Emma Morano on April 15, 2017. At the time of her death, she was the oldest person ever from the West Indies, the oldest verified person to live in the 21st century and the oldest undisputed black person ever.
Brown was born as Violet Moss in Duanvale, Trelawny Parish, Jamaica on March 10, 1900. She was baptized at age 13 at the Trittonvale Baptist Church and remained a member throughout her life, long serving as an organist. She married Augustus Brown and had one daughter with him. In addition, she had six other children, the oldest of whom, Harold Fairweather, died in April 2017 at the age of 97. He is believed to be the oldest person ever with a living parent at the time of his death. Brown spent much of her life cutting sugar cane near her home in the Duanvale district. Her husband Augustus died in 1978.
On her 110th birthday, aside from deafness, Violet was reported as being in good overall physical shape. She stated that she didn’t feel her age, and attributed her long life to God, respecting her parents, working hard and eating coconut sauce. Her favourite pastimes include going to church, reading books and listening to music. At the age of 113, Brown was still in excellent overall health, with her memory still intact. At age 115, she was still able to walk (with the help of a walker) and could read without any glasses. In an interview this year with The Associated Press, Brown said she was surprised but grateful to have lived so long. “This is what God has given me, so I have to take it,” she said.

Burkhardt, who named hard work as one of the reasons for her longevity, was the oldest person living in Neu Ulm from at least September 2009 until her death. In September 2010, Geßner visited once more with orchids for Burkhardt’s 110th birthday, having promised her the year prior that “I will visit again next year.” Burkhardt, who was reported to be grateful to her daughter for the care she had given her, was also stated to be humourous by nature. She died on November 13, 2010, aged 110 years, 50 days, her death being reported in the local newspaper where she lived. At the time of her death, she was believed to be Germany’s second-oldest living person
