Ms. Rosa Castrodad Melendez sadly passed away on 17 July 2023 at the age of 111 years and 88 days.

Rest in peace.

🇵🇷😢Rosa Castrodad Meléndez, quien cumplió 111 años el pasado 20 de abril, falleció ayer lunes en su pueblo natal de Cidra. En memoria de ella, compartimos su historia que publicamos el 10 de mayo de este año.

El Titanic se hundió el 15 de abril de 1912 y cinco días después Rosa Castrodad Meléndez nació en Cidra, en donde reside al son de 111 años y 20 días de vida. Que se sepa, ella es la madre puertorriqueña más antigua del mundo. Además, Rosa está entera excepto por un seno que perdió <<debido a un cáncer benigno que le dio hace como 40 o 50 años atrás …. y está ciega de un ojo y el otro que tiene es de cristal>>, señaló Nilda Castrodad Castrodad, su hija.

<<Mi mamá era agricultora y le encantaba sembrar tabaco, habichuelas, batata, guineos, plátanos, apio, ñames y malangas. Ella tenía muchas gallinas, cerdos, pavos, guineas, patos, vacas y bueyes. Además, fue comerciante porque tuvo una tiendita por muchos años. Después de dejar su tiendita, ella vendía los animales y los huevos porque ella recogía como 100 huevos cada semana>>, dijo Nilda, quien junto a Pedro Castrodad Castrodad y su esposa Noelia Pérez Miranda, cuidan a Rosa.

<<En esa época no había carretera y teníamos que caminar más de una hora para llegar a la carretera principal y coger una guagüita que nos llevaba al pueblo. Ahora con tantos adelantos somos multimillonarios y nos quejamos. En aquellos tiempos carecíamos de lo que tenemos hoy, pero teníamos valores de amor, respeto y decencia para vivir tranquilos y felices. La felicidad no está sujeta al progreso ni al atraso, sino a la actitud que uno asume ante lo que tenemos y nos pasa en la vida>>, afirmó la residente de Cidra.

Rosa se casó con su primo Pedro Luis Castrodad Meléndez y ambos levantaron dignamente a su familia sin sellos de alimentos, (introducidos en la isla trabajadora de Puerto Rico en el 1974), ni Medicaid, (fundado en el extranjero en el 1965), y nunca residieron en vivienda pública. El matrimonio fue otro gran ejemplo de autosuficiencia para la nación puertorriqueña.

Nilda recordó: <<Mi mamá siempre ayudó a la gente. Un señor que tenía ocho hijos pequeños lo internaron en un hospital y mi mamá le daba a su esposa la compra gratis de su tiendita>>. Según Nilda, su madre ha dicho: <<La vida me ha enseñado a compartir con el necesitado. La familia y el ser caritativa me dan mucha felicidad>>.

Nuestras condolencias a todos los seres queridos de doña Rosa Castrodad Meléndez y que ella descanse en paz. La foto muestra a doña Rosa en el día de su último cumpleaños y fue tomada por Brenda Cotto Hernández. #excelenciapuertorriqueña

Born 10 October as opposed to 20 October?

EDIT: never mind, I've found her birth certificate online - 10 October, yes.

 

Excellent job in having solved a longstanding limbo case!

 

Overduidelijk misschien.
