Lucile Randon (Sœur André) sadly passed today aged 118 years and 340 days, in Toulon, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, France. She was born in Ales, Gard, Occitanie, France on the 11th February 1904.
She was the Oldest Living Person in the world since the death of Kane Tanaka on the 19th April 2022 and the oldest living person in France since the death of Honorine Rondello on the 19th October 2017. She was the fourth oldest person ever.
May she rest in peace.

😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭so sad. I'm going to be honest with you people, I do not cry easily, but the sad passing of Mrs. Randon made me cry. I had been doing a lot of reading about Mrs. Randon and she was an amazing person. She was a good honest, hard working woman. She will be missed greatly. I had ultimate respect for Mrs. Randon and I think it would've been cool to meet her. I feel like a large piece of my heart has been ripped out. I would beat myself up if it meant that Lucile did not have to die today. Whyyyyyyy😭😭😭 this isn't fair! Mrs. Randon had so much to live for still! She was content and healthy! I wish there was something I could've done to extend Mrs. Randon's life. Good people don't deserve to die😭 I feel like I lost a dear friend. She was a good woman. Why do good people have to die this way😭😭😭 I feel so sick and hurt. 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭 My soul is crushed. She was such a good person! The Earth lost one of its heroes today. She was one of the most inspiring people in history! I feel so angry at myself because I feel like I could have honored Mrs. Randon more during her lifetime. I wish I had done something for her. Like I wish I had made a banner or something to honor her 118 faithful years, and I'm in so much pain that I didn't. I just feel that she passed too soon. She deserved more time as World's Oldest Living Person. She loved being in the spotlight. Shine on Mrs. Randon, shine on. A Saint on Earth, now a Saint in heaven. R.I.P. Mrs. Randon you will not be forgotten. This woman was one of Earth's greatest heroes. From beyond the dome, I hope she can read my message somehow. Rest in peace. I wish she had gotten more years to experience life. It made me so happy that Mrs. Randon was happy. She deserved to be happy. She was a very great woman. Very painful to see this news. Very VERY painful. And it's a rainy day today. The angels wept tears of joy that now Sister Andre joined them in heaven. That's why it rained today. Goodbye Sister Andre. One day I'll join you beyond the dome. Goodbye.

Very Sad News. Rest in Peace Sister Lucile 😞😞
Very sad news, she wrote a remarkable and endearing chapter in the history of longevity.
Excepting undiscovered cases, Jeanne Calment's record will now endure until at least 14 August 2029.
39 years and counting...
Repose en paix, Lucile Randon/Sœur André (1904-2023).

Rest in eternal peace, Sister André, Lucile Randon, may you now see what you believed in your life.
Rest in peace.
Soeur André, my alltime favourite oldest person in the past and future, rest in eternal peace.
The endless light of God will burn for you forever. You will pray for us human beings in heaven as you did it before every single day on earth.
We will painfulliestly miss you until we meet one day.
S a n t a s u b i t o! ❤️ ❤️ ❤️
PS Scientists, atheists etc. as dry as a bone may forgive my non-professional words.
Rest In Peace Sister Andre.
One of our all time longevity legends.
A humble and caring type of person who didn’t necessarily respond easily to the fame that her longevity brought, but she did grow into this role a little over the past few years.
She had wished for some time to pass on, and meet her brothers from World War One and other beloved family members. So we hope she has achieved that wish now.
You will be remembered for a long time.
Rest in peace Souer André
Rest in peace, Mrs Randon. You've achieved a remarkable feat, and, above all, you've been an inspiration to many.
Rest in peace, Lucile Randon, fourth-oldest validated person of all-time. Despite looking frail for quite a while, she almost made it to her 119th birthday. With her death, we lose the last living link to 1904, 1905, and 1906.

Sister Andre's own world record is of course being the oldest person ever to assume the title of WOP.
