Baku – APA. On Wednesday, Gertrude Weaver was unofficially named the world's oldest person, and she celebrated by having her nails painted pink and answering reporters' questions, APA reports quoting Los Angeles Times.

On Monday, just days later, Weaver died at the age of 116 in Camden, Ark.


Weaver died about 10 a.m. Monday from complications of pneumonia, according to Kathy Langley, an administrator at Silver Oaks Health and Rehabilitation, where Weaver lived.


Weaver became known as the world's oldest verified person after the death of a 117-year-old Japanese woman, Misao Okawa, last week.


According to official records, Weaver was born July 4, 1898, in Texarkana, Ark.; she would have turned 117 on the Fourth of July, and had said she wanted President Obama to attend her birthday party this year.
