A 116-year-old American woman who had just become the world's oldest person last week, sadly did not get to live with that honor for long.

Gertrude Weaver died in Arkansas on Monday.

When a 117-year-old Japanese woman passed away last week, Gertrude took over the title as the world's oldest.

Her advice for living a long life: use a lot of skin moisturizer, treat everyone nice, love your neighbor and eat your own cooking, not fast food.
