New York, December 18 - Italian-born Dina
Manfredini held the title of world's oldest woman for just two
weeks before dying in a nursing home in Iowa at age 115.
Dina Guerri was born in Pievepelago, in Italy's central
Emilia Romagna region, on April 4, 1897 and moved to the United
States in 1920 with her husband Riccardo Manfredini.
Dina Manfredini worked in a munitions factory during the
Second World War and later, as a cleaner, an occupation she
continued until she was 90.
The title of world's oldest person now goes to Jiroemon
Kimura a Japanese man 15 days younger than Manfredini, who died
Monday.
According to officials at Guinness World Records,
Manfredini - who had four children - is the only verified
Italian to reach age 115 in documented history.
