New York, December 5 - An Italian-American from
Iowa is the oldest woman in the world.
Dina Manfredini, 115 years and 245 days old, moved from
second to first place after the death of 116-year-old Besse
Cooper in Georgia on Tuesday.
Manfredini was born in the northern Italian town of
Pievepelago in 1897.
She moved to Des Moines in 1920 with her husband Riccardo.
She had four children, three of whom are still alive.
During World War II she worked in a munitions factory.
Later she worked as a cleaning lady until retiring in her
90s.
She was widowed at 67, but the supercentenarian remarried
in 2007 at 110.
She is the oldest recorded female immigrant ever.
