Bad Month for the Old

Yesterday, , the world's oldest person, Kamato Hongo, died at the age of 116.
In late September, the world's oldest man, Yukichi Chuganji, died at age 114.
In mid-October, Elena Slough, the oldest living American (at the time), died (and, in a truly sad fashion- her 90 year old daughter died only 3 days earlier).

Update: I forgot about Madame Chiang Kia-Shek who died earlier this month at 106.
