Longevity claimant

Cruz claimed to have been born on 3 May 1878 in San Sebastián, San Vicente, El Salvador. She was baptized in Catholic Church of San Sebastian but she had no birth or baptism certificate. She gave birth to 13 children.

In last years of her life she was in really bad shape. After she had a meal and after she went to sleep, Cruz passed away in sleep on 8 March 2007. Her claimed age is 128 years, 309 days. At time of death she had 60 grandchildren, 80 great-grandchildren and 25 great-great grandchildren.
