Anna Stoehr, Minnesota's oldest resident, dies at age 114


Minnesota's oldest resident died Sunday morning.

Anna Stoehr, who made headlines around the world this fall when she had to lie to be able to join Facebook, celebrated her 114th birthday Oct. 15.

Harlan Stoehr told KARE 11 she died in her sleep, noting her mind and speech were clear until early last week.

Anna Stoehr was born in 1900 near Manning, Iowa, and lived in her rural farmhouse until she was 112. She then moved into Green Prairie Place, a senior living community in Plainview, where she died, the Rochester Post Bulletin says.

Stoehr was the 12th-oldest validated living supercentenarian in the world, according to Gerontology Research Group, and was the sixth-oldest person living in the United States.
