Survivor of slavery dies in Brazil
Maria do Carmo Jeronimo, a former slave whose lack of a birth certificate prevented her recognition as the world's oldest woman, has died at the age of 129.
Jeronimo died of a stroke late on Wednesday at the University Hospital in Itajuba, 300 km (200 miles) north-west of Rio.

Maria do Carmo Jeronimo lived in three centuries
According to church records, Jeronimo was born on 5 March 1871 in the southeastern town of Carmo de Minas, in Minas Gerais state.
Brazil then was a monarchy under Emperor Pedro II, and Jeronimo, who was black, was born into slavery.
She was 17 when Brazil finally abolished slavery, but never left Minas Gerais.
For six decades she worked as a housemaid for the Guimaraes family, which in recent years tried unsuccessfully to have her recognized by the Guinness Book of Records as the world's oldest woman.
"They said the baptismal registry of the church in Carmo de Minas wasn't enough and demanded a birth certificate," said Agostinho Guimaraes in a recent interview.
"The problem is there were no certificates back then, especially for slaves."

Proof needed

The publication requires a birth certificate or other undisputed proof of age, because some past claims of longevity have turned out to be false.
The Guinness World Records book says the world's oldest person is Eva Morris, of Staffordshire in England, who is 114 years old.
It lists the oldest man as 110-year-old Benjamin Harrison Holcomb of the United States.
The oldest person ever with authenticated records was Jeanne Calment of France, who died on 4 August 1997 aged 122.
Still, local record books listed Jeronimo as the world's oldest woman, and she was honoured at a Carnival parade in Rio commemorating the abolition of slavery.
She also received a personal blessing from Pope John Paul II during a visit to Rio. At the age of 127, she finally saw the ocean.

Resistance

In her final years, Jeronimo had a series of strokes that effectively left her in a vegetative state.
But her resistance surprised Guimaraes family members, who took care of her when she no longer was able to work.
"We saw her go through many crises, many delicate situations and survive, " Thereza Guimaraes told the newspaper Hoje em Dia.
"We ended up thinking that it would go on forever."

Die ex-slave who was 129 years

BELO HORIZONTE - Itajubá died yesterday in the former slave Mary of Carmo Geronimo (pictured), for 129 years, considered by many women over the old world. She was hospitalized two weeks ago. In the last two years, Maria do Carmo, born March 5, 1871, had several strokes that confined to a bed in the family Bernardo Guimaraes in the neighborhood Our Lady of Fatima in Itajubá, south of Minas.

The health of former slave was "iron," according to his family until 1997. That year, she performed one of his biggest dreams, which was to be with Pope John Paul II.

The two met in Rio After the hearing, at which he received the papal blessing, Maria do Carmo started to have balance problems and was hospitalized several times, once at the Heart Institute (Incor). (Evaldo Magellan)

After the crisis, even turned off the unit is installed and maintained in the vein of the left subclavian retired as a precaution. He explained that if Ana Martinha will undergo a new procedure to stop the CPR would be simpler and faster - enough to trigger the device.

In addition to the natural aging of the organs because of advanced age, being a former smoker was hindering the recovery of Dona Ana Martin. As Carretoni Vaz, the consumption of tobacco caused lung blocks and took the pensioner to a chronic respiratory failure.

Currently, the major concern of doctors is the control of severe pulmonary infection. This, says Carretoni because the risk of a generalized infection.

The daughter of Dona Ana Martin, Benedita da Silva, 73, who retired to live, spent the afternoon in the hospital. Crying a lot, she asked his friends to do the prayer for recovery retired. "She will go home. God will meet our demands, "he repeated Benedicta.

HISTORY - Born in the town of Chapada dos Guimarães, Ana Martinha repeatedly said that his true age is not what appears on the birth certificate. Was she 127 years, four more than the one revealed by the document by error data supplied to the court by his father Marinho da Silva Fernandes.

Always humorous and with an amazing clarity, until earlier this year Martinha Dona Ana lived with the retirement of a minimum wage at the time of $ 240, paid by the INSS. In March this year, she began to receive a special retirement amounting to U.S. $ 1.4000 level (OF 4), granted by the government through legislation passed by the Legislative Assembly.

She also won a house, a simple model, built on the ground of family, neighborhood Stone 90, the state government through the "My Home", maintained by the resources Fethab (State Fund for Transport and Housing).

Ana Martinho da Silva, who turns 123 years tomorrow, remember important passages of the history of Brazil and Mato Grosso
ALECY ALVES

The oldest woman in Brazil and maybe the world, Mrs. Ana Martinho da Silva completes 123 years tomorrow dreaming of owning a car for sightseeing. "Let God give me a car for you to see how I was going to walk," she repeated in an interview earlier this week, while telling stories of the places where he lived.

Daughter of slave owner Martinha Barreiro was born in the community, municipality of Chapada dos Guimarães, on August 25, 1880, as a birth certificate registered at the registry chapadensis. From his father, Martin Fernandes da Silva, besides the painful memories of a deal in the country, serving their masters, she recalls the mistake he had made ​​time to record it.

Instead of informing the date of birth, Martin had said the day the record suggesting that she had just been born. Since the document was made ​​four years after the birth certificates along with three other siblings, her real age would have four more years, or 127.

With a memory of envy, owner Martinha remember important historical passages of the country as the abolition of slavery. While the bill, complain of vision and hearing. "I do not know what came over me, my daughter, but even before last year I saw and heard much more. By fine needle stuck in line. Now I can not see or the way, "he laments.

With good humor, she describes the scenes of the news of the end of slavery. "Now a man there on the farm, running in all directions and reporting the manumission (the Golden Law, which ended slavery was signed in May 1888). At that time, blacks began to jump for joy and whites to cry. " Between laughs, owner Martinha adds, "our people were happy and sad because they would have to work."

But the sadness just stamping on her face, remembering the atrocities of slavery. "My daughter, they both Jewish quarter of the slaves that you can not even imagine. I have seen many others beaten and murdered. "

Living in a simple house in the neighborhood 90 Stone II, she spends most of the time in a network, you still can stand alone. Age also does not stop making personal needs such as bathing, dressing and eating.

The health and family medical surprises. The daughter, Benedicta Silva, 70, says he is ashamed before the mother's ability to recall facts as old. Owner Martinha boasts, for example, has been hospitalized only twice and commonplace occurrences. Once, he says, because it was injured in a fall caused by a dog. "But I spent only one day in the hospital." In another, he says, had suffered diarrhea and fainting. This would also have been less than 24 hours under medical care.

Normally, the owner Martinha only go to the doctor every 30 or 60 days to see if all is well. Nor does the continued use of drugs. The habit is to take a spoonful of honey a day, after breakfast, which can be a steak or a piece of chicken with a handful of cassava flour.

At lunch, the meal it needs to have soup, why prefer meat or chicken with potatoes. Dinner is served at 16.30 at the most, because after that time owner Martinha only consumes liquid - water, juice or milk. But she says she misses the beans used to make and even gives the recipe - rosinha beans with beef bones.

Title of oldest person in the world caused controversy among three Brazilian | Published: 02/06/2011

In Brazil, although the mining Valentine Maria Gomes , of 114 years, has been voted 'The World's Oldest Person "by Guinness World Records - the record books - two other Brazilian - the Rio Sebastiana de Lourdes Silva, 116 years, and Bahia Conception of Mary Isidis 123 years - also want the title.

Maria Gomes Valentine was born on July 9, 1896 and has 48 days of life more than the former record holder, the American Besse Cooper.Guinness confirmed the birth date of Valentine and Maria Gomes, thereby Besse Cooper, who is still alive, he loses the title of the oldest person in the world, becoming just 'The oldest person in North America. "

The mining Maria Gomes Valentine lived all their lives and move around in Carangola currently in a wheelchair and receives the equivalent of a minimum wage of R $ 545.00.It depends on the public system for treatment, since the family can not afford private health insurance.

Maria Gomes Valentine married John in 1913, but her husband died in 1946.He had one son, four grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.Known as Granny Quita, the mining inherited the longevity of his own father, who lived 100 years.

The two stories of other Brazilian, one in Rio de Janeiro, Bahia and another, are possible cases of older people in the world.Guinness still receives thousands of claims of other persons to the rank of the world's oldest person, but many cases are rejected by the absence of necessary documents for proof.

The case of Maria Gomes Valentine is awesome, because it is a person born during the reign of Queen Victoria and before the creation of the Ford company.Brazil had never succeeded in ordering the previous evaluation.

Female - Maria Amélia Costa dos Santos (May 15 1888) of Manaus, Amazonas, Brazil

119-year-old member from Brazil
Taught family correct principles before finding gospel at age 111
By Chris Morales
Church News staff writer
Published: Saturday, Aug. 18, 2007
Print | Email | Share
How many people today can say they remember something they did in the 1800s?

Sister dos Santos is surrounded by four generations of family some of whom are LDS. Among them are daughter Maria Amelia's family, members since 1996.
For Sister Amelia Costa dos Santos, age 119, it's simply a matter of recalling her childhood.

A member of the Ajuricaba Ward, Manaus Brazil Ponta Negra Stake, Sister dos Santos was born May 15, 1888, according to a birth certificate issued by the state of Amazonas, Brazil.

She is perhaps the oldest living person in the world, said Kip Lambert of South Jordan, Utah. Brother Lambert met Sister dos Santos while serving as a missionary in the Brazil Manaus Mission. He's working to get Sister dos Santos inducted into the Guinness Book of World Records as the oldest living person in the world. The title has made recent headlines as the world's previously recognized oldest living person, Yone Minagawa, died August 13 at age 114, according to The New York Times.

Sister dos Santos was baptized at age 111 by her grandson Nilzomar Souza. Her family first came in contact with the Church three years before when missionaries knocked on the door of one of her daughters in 1996.

Daughter Maria Amelia, one of 15 said it took her mother a little longer to change her long-standing traditions, but "being surrounded by family members who had embraced the Church helped her see the fruits of the gospel."

The supercentenarian, as this growing segment of 110-years plus, has come to be known by researchers, still does many things on her own. She feeds herself and can still walk. One of her favorite hobbies is to lie on her hammock and listen to Church hymns.

"She has such a wonderful spirit about her, always so smiley and happy," said Brother Lambert who remembers teasing Sister dos Santos about being baptized at such an advanced age.

Courtesy of Santos family
Birth certificate issued by the civil registry states Amelia Costa dos Santos was born May 15, 1888.
"I would tell her, 'Boy, you're old. There must have been a lot of sins washed away when you were baptized.' And she would say, 'Elder, I never felt cleaner."'

With a century's worth of stories, Sister dos Santos loves to gather her great- and great-great-grandchildren around and tell stories of her life and instill in them the values she was taught as a child.

She still remembers being about age 10 when her family had to flee into the jungle for a few days after a serious conflict broke out in Brazil in the late 1890s (most likely the War of Canudos from 1896-1897). The brutal struggle for authority between 30,000 villagers and the Brazilian army ended in the death or capture of almost the entire village.

Sister dos Santos said her father was fearful that the conflict would break out to other parts in the north and made preparations for his family to survive in the wilderness.

Sister Maria Amelia said that the influence of her mother definitely helped prepare her family to join the Church.

"The values, the stress on a healthy diet free from addictions and the importance she placed on obedience helped prepare our family to accept the gospel," she told the Church News in a telephone interview.

Sister dos Santos has 15 children (four deceased), 96 grandchildren and more than 100 great-grandchildren.

The family hopes Sister dos Santos lives a little longer to witness the Manaus Brazil Temple dedication.

When asked what her secret to long life is, this vovozinha, or "little grandmother" as she is known throughout her neighborhood, will tell you to drink a lot of milk (her favorite beverage) and always be very obedient to your parents.

The oldest woman in the world is Brazilian
Posted on 20 August 2007 by alex
No, not the Dercy Gonçalves, like everyone thinks, the oldest woman in the world is Bahia Rosa Silvina de Jesus, is lucid and to 119 years.
She was born on June 20, 1888, one month after the abolition of slavery and shortly before the birth of Dercy Gonçalves.
If you think that she is taking leave of life, it contradicts what is still talking about a girl and still goes on (live much longer).
She says the recipe for longevity is "rum, flirt and smoke roll."
The old lady said it was too smart taken when she was younger, he stole his father's liquor and supplemented with water.It would be hence the term burning water?
Japan's Yone Minagawa was in the "Guinness" Book of Records as the oldest person in the world, but she died a few days to 114 years.
To enter the Guinness owner Silvana, it is necessary to prove that lived in the last three centuries, sending documents to prove their 119 years.

Cachaça, flirt and smoke roll recipe is a woman of 119 years
Duty | Posted on 18/08/2007 at 13h55m
Rodrigo Ferreira, Diario de S. Paulo

SAO PAULO - Cachaça, roll and smoke a lot are the dating secrets of Bahia Rosa Silvina de Jesus to her longevity. The birth records dated June 20, 1888 - just one month after the abolition of slavery in the country - evidenced by the 119 years of life. Well experienced ", he said. To get an idea of ​​what it represents, in 1914, when World War I broke out, Silvina has had 26 years. In 1950, with the arrival of TV in the country, she was 62 years old.

- Still going-away challenge.

By age she may be the oldest of Sao Paulo, perhaps the world. Silvina was born and raised in the country, in Bahia, a city called Jacaraci. After dating a lot, she married and had six children.

I'm still a girl
He currently lives with her youngest child, yearning Covas de Souza, 62, in a simple house in the Garden of Esmeraldas, in the extreme west of the capital.

Although he says he has no health problems, time has left its mark. Silvina sees very little and have to ask her daughter to turn on the television to listen to loud music with the masses of Padre Marcelo Rossi. The legs are weak and she can not walk anymore. The long periods he worked on the hoe sequels also left in the back, and now the spine is curved. Laughing, she says it is a girl and has fond memories of youth.

- Get up early for weeding. It was a delight to plant rice, corn, beans, cassava - recalls.

The cigar roller and rum she just dropped close to 100 years.

- I took the bottle of rum from my father stole a bit and then completed with water - has a naughty smile of who is considered a child.

Japanese are champions of longevity
Japan's Yone Minagawa was registered in Guinness' Book of Records as the oldest person in the world. Age 114, she died last Monday in the city Fukuoka, Japan

To join the list, you must ask the publishers of the record book. You must also submit documents proving their age. Analysis of the roles is rigorous.

With the death of Japanese, American Edna Parker, also of 114 years, you should retain the title of world's oldest for publication. She was born on April 20, 1893 and lives in the town of Shelbyville, Indiana.

Minagawa, former owner of the station, like candy and said that the secret to her longevity was eating well and getting a good night's sleep. The Japanese had been born on January 4, 1893. She had become the oldest person in the world in late January after the death of American Emma Faust Tillman, also 114 years.

Japanese women are more people living in the world. They have a life expectancy of 85.8 years. Experts attribute this to good diet and high standard of care in the country. The oldest man in the world, according to "Guinness" is also Japanese. Tomoji Tanabe is 111 years.

On the night of Sunday, October 23, in service held in the Evangelical Church Assembly of God was named one of world's oldest women, the indigenous Stone Mrs. Benedict, who has documented 122 years old. Owner lives in Rock Indian Reservation Guarita in the town of Smooth Stone, on Lieutenant Portela. After climbing the stairs with difficulty the old tank was dipped in the waters of baptism in a ceremony presided over by Pastor Jose Cesar Machado, who beyond, named eight other people. The Indian baptism was encouraged by his son, Arlindo Claudino, 74, who claims to be church member at least 30 years. Mrs. Stone lives with her ​​son, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Benedict Stone, India's Reserve Guarita, may be the oldest woman in Brazil
Fri, 22 October 2010 09:32
She was born five months before the Proclamation of the Republic. Witnessed two turns of the century. With 121 years and with enviable health iron, was discovered by the 2010 Census

The clock is ticking. The citation may be commonplace, yes. But the truth is we can not freeze time. It passes too quickly, sometimes in the blink of an eye. Not to India kaingang Stone Benedict has come to 121 years, residing two kilometers from the city of Tenente Portela, one of 11 sectors (villages) of the Indian Reserve Guarita. It was recently discovered by the agent in the 2010 Census, Gisele Silveira. As the Identity Card number 4043294844, she, daughter of Joseph and Domenica Benedict Dias, was born on June 29, 1889 in the town of Miraguai. However, the Indian, according to the Notary of his hometown, was recorded only in 1986, with 97 years. The family assured the age presenting the birth certificate of Mrs. Stone. The lack of information prevents more accurate confirmation of the old crone, which may be an older women who knows the country and the world.
Maria Olivia da Silva, 130 years, it was considered Brazil's oldest woman died late on July 8 this year in Astorga, Paraná.

SLIPPERS IN THE HANDS

Dona Stone shares a house of wood measuring approximately 30 square meters with a granddaughter and four great-grandchildren Silvane Ferreira. Every day she walks four kilometers barefoot to visit the youngest child and only living, Arlindo Claudino, 68. "She hates to wear shoes, so it takes the slippers in his hands," says the daughter laughing Cacilda Sales, 51, mother of seven and grandmother of 21 grandchildren. "I think she never wore shoes. At least I've never seen, "added the woman.

With memory, clarity and health that are the envy of those who live there much less time, the Indian has a secret to reaching 121 years. But the daughter Cacilda reveals a somewhat unusual recipe for longevity: meat and patience. "Look, it requires meat every day. When we served rice, beans and meat, she only eats meat and a few beans, rice plays out. " Patience certainly could not miss for those who produced four children and had at least 20 grandchildren, 50 great-grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren. Most live around them. Plus, the house you live in a small bar works, including a pool table, which could jeopardize the peacefulness of the elderly. The report, which spent an afternoon with Ms. Stone, adds two more ingredients in this recipe for living well: good humor and sympathy.

Getting to longevity is not only the privilege of Mrs. Stone. Her second husband died at 115 years. The father and mother died at 103 to 100 years. The centenarian woman has health to spare. Cacilda highlights that, except for minor colds, sometimes due to the baths that seeks to prevent the elderly was admitted to hospital only once in a lifetime. It was a year ago, when he suffered a fall and needed medical help.

SOUL CHILD

"Mother vein," as it is known in the village, he is feeling at ease with the harassment of the press. Since the census reported her age, has consistently received a visit from reporters. Two TV stations have already been to his house. The first was the RBS and Monday, SBT. Moreover, the National Broadcasting - branch of Porto Alegre -, was interested in the subject after reading an article, produced by Paulo Farias, posted on the website of Radio Broadcast (www.difusoraceleiro.com.br). It was thanks to information from the report that the team of Andrei Rossetto (reporter), Jorge Garcia Alves Júnior (reporter cameraman) and Alberto Nunez (driver and assistant) came to the village where the Indian resident. The particular matter was aired nationwide on the evening of Tuesday, 19, the station's main newspaper.

The old woman hardly speaks Portuguese. His granddaughter Silvane, as translator, is the bridge between the press and interviewed the person who became most famous Tenente Portela, at the time. A nice, the great-grandmother lives surrounded by children, with whom he feels very comfortable, talkative and smiling as if in early childhood. And so, as a child, like getting gifts. Anything from candy to money. Vain, in special situations, for example, give interviews, he prefers the colorful dress, typical kaingang, she even sewed.

The discovery of a woman who might have 121 years has generated discussion in the community portelense. As soon as the news emerged, many doubted the veracity. Others see the existence of Mrs. Stone the chance to make the city more known. Oblivious to all this, the Indian attempts to maintain their routine and shows that have vitality and a willingness to live many years.

OAO MONLEVADE, Brazil — Lucid, with good eyesight and a great sense of humor, Floripes Luzia Damasio, who turned 115 on Dec. 13, is the oldest member of the Church in Brazil — and perhaps in the Church.

After attending the Sao Paulo temple for the first time 10 years ago, Sister Damasio has completed work for three generations, including her husband and children who have died. "She never complains," said her daughter Maria.
Photo by Elder J. Roberto Viveiros
Floripes Luzia Damasio, posing with Elder Neil L. Andersen, was born nearly 60 years after the Restoration.
Some Sundays, she and her daughter don't wait for their ride and instead walk half an hour to the meetinghouse.

Born about 60 years after the Restoration, long before the Church arrived in Brazil, this small woman of the state of Minas Gerais lived long enough to be baptized in 1993 at age 103.

She saw the changes of a new century. She can recall slavery, because even though she was born a year after its official abolition here, vestiges remained long afterwards. Born in 1889, she worked in the fields where, to weave her own clothing, she first had to plant the cotton and later pick and prepare it. She learned early to value the basic principles of a good life: faith in the Lord and hard work.

"One time, I remember that we had a very dry season," she said. "The sun was so hot. So I prayed and asked the Lord to send rain and a breeze to help us. A short time later it began to rain, and it even hailed. It appeared to be a punishment. So I prayed asking that the rain be stopped. And He heard me. The rain passed, the sun warmed up, the sky cleared," Sister Damasio said.

The gospel was introduced to her by two missionaries who often passed by. After hearing from a neighborhood child whose mother had been healed after a priesthood blessing by the two missionaries, she and her daughter, Maria Raimunda, who was 63 at the time, sought out the pair.

At age 103, Sister Damasio accepted the gospel and was baptized by Elder Pinheiro, followed by her daughter Maria, the only one of her seven living children (she had 12) who has accepted the gospel.

She is affectionally called the "little grandmother" by the members of her Joo Monelvade Branch, Ipatinga Brazil District.

Sister Damasio and her daughter always read their scriptures, sing hymns and hold family home evening, said Conceico Maria da Luz, former Relief Society president. Sister Damasio also participates in Relief Society classes and makes good comments.

"Everybody in the room feels a strong spirit when Sister Damasio goes to the pulpit on fast Sunday to bear her testimony of the truth of the gospel, or when she prays in Church," said Sister Luz.

"She always testifies of Christ, of His atonement for all of us, of His death and resurrection. She always prays for those in need and even mentions some of them by name."

Even with physical discomfort and some pain, she travels 14 to 16 hours to visit the temple at least once a year with the rest of the district.

"I love to be in the temple, to see all of the people dressed in white, treating each other well and being so happy," said Sister Damasio, adding that in her living room at home she displays a picture of the Sao Paulo Brazil Temple, which was given to her by Elder Athos Amorim, formerly of the Seventy, when he was president of the Brazil South Area.

For the little grandmother to be in the house of the Lord and perform ordinances for her ancestors is a great blessing. Her first visit to the temple was 10 years ago, on Dec. 2, 1994. She has since completed the work for three generations of her family. In 1997, she was sealed to her deceased husband, parents, grandparents and children who had passed away, and to Maria.

This was her greatest dream, and it was realized thanks to the help of members such as Ianaja Quaresma, the wife of the former branch president, Jose Maria Quaresma. They helped Sister Damasio and Maria fill out the pedigree chart and other necessary papers, accompanied them to the temple and supported them during that time.

Evandro Florentino da Silva, president of the Ipatinga Brazil District, told how he admires the perseverance, disposition and willingness to serve of this "oldest little lamb."

"She has always been a great example of faith and love of the Lord," he said, and emphasized that it is Sister Damasio and her daughter who pay for their trips to the temple and their lodging while they are there.

"She never complains, and we always do several sessions each day," said her daughter Maria.

Having suffered discrimination and lived with great difficulties, Sister Damasio counsels any who would live with wisdom and happiness: "Live the law of God; don't take away from your neighbor; don't judge others; don't speak ill of anyone; and never bear false witness." For her, the recipe for long life and energy is obedience, reverence for parents and a diet based on the fruits of the earth.

"I never ate meat when I was a child. We had goat's milk to drink. My father planted manioc, potatoes, yams, vegetables, and that's what we ate." Although she received only one vaccination, she has never been hospitalized except when she fell and broke her hip.

The city of Joao Monlevade honors Sister Damasio each year as the oldest woman in the city. The branch commemorated her birthday on Dec. 13, 2004, to honor her 115 years of faith and sacrifice. From the branch president to her visiting teachers, many came to visit her, bringing her gifts and affection.

"To visit the grandmother is a life lesson," said Angelica, one of her visiting teachers. "And a joy, for she is always telling us stories and teaching us a great deal." Along with the traditional "Parabens a voce" (Happy Birthday), her favorite hymns were sung at her request: "High on the Mountain Top" and "Hark, All Ye Nations!"

Asked if she had a birthday wish, Sister Damasio declared, "I just want to live a lot."

“We Count Them Happy Which Endure”

Not long ago, Sister Floripes Luzia Damasio arrived at the São Paulo Temple with other members of the João Monlevade Branch, Belo Horizonte Brazil Stake. During this temple excursion on 3–7 June 1997, she went through at least three sessions each day, and on one day she attended four sessions. During this trip she was also sealed to her deceased husband and to other family members—including her daughter, Maria Raimundo, who received her own endowment. This 500-kilometer trip was the third time Sister Floripes has attended the temple since her baptism in 1993.

None of these facts is entirely unusual—unless one knows a little about Sister Floripes and her circumstances.

Sister Floripes was born on 13 December 1889, just over one year after the May 1888 declaration freeing the slaves in Brazil. Her parents were former slaves and worked for owners of sugar plantations.

Sister Floripes, however, was born into freedom. She learned from her parents to place a high value on life, on freedom, and also on work. And from the time she was very small, she has worked to build a better life. As a young woman she married Cassemiro Jovino da Silva, and they had 12 children. He died at age 60.

It wasn’t until 11 July 1993—at age 103—that Sister Floripes was baptized a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. On 2 December 1994—at almost age 105—she traveled to the São Paulo Temple for her own endowment. During her latest trip to the temple, she was 107 years old!

While serving in the temple, Sister Floripes did not want to rest. She was a little tired but explained that she was very happy being in the temple.

On the last day of the trip, she wanted to see a little of the city of São Paulo. As she became acquainted with the streets, the stores, and the surroundings, she expressed her joy at each new thing she encountered. She was impressed by the many cars, airplanes, and people, explaining that she grew up accustomed to oxcarts and buggies.

Now age 109, Sister Floripes has outlived five of her children. She still plants and harvests her own food, cooks her own meals, and takes care of a daughter, who is also a widow, when she is ill. And she always arrives at the meetinghouse early on Sunday—in spite of having to walk a distance and then catch a bus.

Sister Floripes does not give in easily to the annoyances and challenges of life. Her spine may have been curved by the passage of time, but she shows much determination and perseverance and is an example of finding happiness in righteous living. She prays for the branch members and always encourages them to keep the Spirit in their lives. When her visiting teachers stop by, she asks them to read the Book of Mormon to her.

Sister Floripes is, as James wrote, “an example of suffering affliction, and of patience.” As James continued, “We count them happy which endure” (James 5:10–11).
