News24xx.com - Violet Brown spent much of her life cutting sugarcane in the fields around her home in western Jamaica. She attended church regularly, avoids pork and chicken and celebrated her 117th birthday last month.

On Saturday, she is believed to have become the world's oldest living person following the death of Emma Morano of Italy, born Nov. 29, 1899. Brown told that she was surprised but grateful to have lived this long.

"This is what God given me, so I have to take it long life," Brown said her home in the town of Duanvale.


But Brown has not yet been declared the world's oldest by Guinness World Records. Young said he has met Brown and examined about her birth certificate, which was issued by the British authorities who governed Jamaica at the time of her birth.

"She's the oldest person that we have sufficient documentation for at this time," Young said.

Jamaica's prime minister congratulated Brown on Twitter. Guinness said it was researching a number of candidates for the new world's oldest person title.

Brown has two caregivers and spends most of the day with resting in the home with her 97-year-old son.

The secret to long life is hard work, she said.

"I was a cane farmer. I would do every work myself," she said.
