Songkhla’s oldest woman dies at age of 120

Songkhla’s oldest resident, Mrs Teep Damdaeng, died peacefully at the age of 120 years at her home in Hat Yai district on Wednesday.

 

Grandma Teep was survived by five children with the eldest one being 86 years old and the youngest one being 74 years old.

 

She was born during the reign of King Rama V in 1897 in Hua Sai district of Nakhon Si Thammarat. However, her parents did not report her birth to the district office until eight years afterward. So, officially, she was born in 1905. The family eventually moved to Songkhla.

 

Mrs Pongsri, her eldest surviving daughter, told the media that Mrs Teep was healthy and rarely became ill even though she was over 100 years old. She was always in good mood and was loved by her grandchildren, her neighbours and people in the community who kept visiting her.

I cannot help being amazed at the gullibility of the local press frequently reporting such absurd claims as fact.  Have they never heard of the Guinness Book of Records, to which it would certainly have been reported if there were a shred of evidence?  There was no registration of births here in 1905.  The best evidence to her age is that her children range in age from 86 to 74, suggesting she was about 102.

The second time today a tear came to my eye. What a great achievement to be more appreciated as I age and hurt.
