Oldest Lady Wishes All Mothers Peace

Cuba’s oldest person, Juana Bautista de la Candelaria Rodriguez, 126, wished all mothers on the planet peace from the rural neighborhood of Santa Rosa, in the municipality of Campechuela.

On the occasion of Mother’s Day on Sunday, the elderly woman spoke at the farm where she was born on February 2, 1885.

With admirable clarity and energy for her age, Candulia, as close family and friends call her, asked for “all the good” and “a lot of health” for all mothers, and expressed her wish for wars to end.

She declared herself to be a happy mother, for the love she receives from her son Eleduvildo, her six grandchildren, and the rest of her descendants.

Last year, while speaking about her family, Candulia explained that Eleduvildo became a widower when his children were little, and that she helped him bring them up.

She pointed out that she receives visitors every day and that when he was hospitalized her five grandsons asked for vacation to take care of her.

Juana Bautista, a black woman, was born in the hamlet of Santa Rosa, in the neighborhood of Ceiba Hueca Arriba, in today’s Granma province, according to Volume I, page 35 of the Register of Births of Campechuela, where her name was written on the 27th of that month.

He aged was certified by way of a biomedical and psychosocial study in 2007, carried out by a team of the Cuban Public Health Ministry and the Latin American Center for the Third Age.

This super-longevous woman had 12 siblings; her mother died a centenarian and her father at 96.

According to reports found on the Internet, Antisa Khvichava, from the former Soviet republic of Georgia, was born on July 8, 1880, being the most long-lived person on the planet.
