Re: [GRG] Fanny Godin has died

That’s the only information I received, Paul.

But “health deteriorated rather rapidly” does not describe any of
the signs or symptoms of that “health deteriorated”, which is what
would be most interesting. Can you glean anything more substantive
from the reports?
Unfortunately, people of this age are simply expected to die at any
time and no one around her, not even the medical people most
involved with her, has any great interest in the precise
medical/physiological nature of the deterioration.

Her health deteriorated rather rapidly
the final week of her life, and she had been close to death
since Friday evening apparently, dying exactly two days later,
i.e. yesterday evening, my dear beloved colleagues.

Any reports about
her cause of death or events leading to her death?

Oudste Belg overleden op 112-jarige



Godin, de oudste Belg en zelfs oudste
bewoner van de Benelux, is zondagavond op
112-jarige leeftijd overleden. Dat wordt
maandag bevestigd door het rusthuis waar ze

Fanny Godin
stond op de achtste plaats van de oudste
inwoners van Europa en op 39ste plaats in de
hele wereld. Ze was met haar 112 jaar wel de
oudste inwoner van de Benelux en verbleef in
het woonzorgcentrum Onze Lieve Vrouw van
Lourdes in Zoutleeuw. 

In mei vierde
het kranige oudje nog haar verjaardag.
‘Fanny geniet nog elke dag met volle teugen
van het leven’, zeiden haar verzorgers nog
op haar verjaardag in mei. ‘Ze houdt van
klassieke muziek, literatuur en de natuur.
Ze is in uitstekende gezondheid, stapt met
behulp van een wandelstok en kan nog vrij
goed vertellen over vroeger en nu. Ze neemt
elke week deel aan de blijf-fit activiteit’,
klonk het toen.

Fanny Godin
werd geboren op 27 mei 1902 in Hoei (Luik),
maar woonde bijna haar hele leven in
Brussel. Sinds geruime tijd verbleef ze in
het woonzorgcentrum in Zoutleeuw.

Anna De
Guchtenaere is nieuwe ‘Oudste Belg’

De titel van ‘Oudste Belg’ gaat nu naar
Anna De Guchtenaere, die in april dit jaar
haar 110e verjaardag vierde. Anna kreeg toen
zelfs een groot feest van de Stad Gent. ‘De
kaap van 110 is zeldzaam. Er bestaat zelfs een
aparte term voor. Anna is nu een
supereeuweling.’ speechte schepen van
Burgerzaken en Protocol Sofie Bracke op haar
verjaardagsfeestje. De vrouw mag zich al zeven
jaar op rij ‘Oudste Gentenaar’ noemen, en is
sinds 26 augustus ook de Oudste Gentenaar
ooit. Nu mag Anna daar dus een nieuwe titel
aan toevoegen.
