I Glad I'm Not on His List

Emma Faust Tillman, the world's newest oldest person, is unmoved by her accomplishment. But her great-nephew John B. Stewart has been keeping score on her behalf.

Stewart, a self-described family historian, ... had a copy of a page from the Guinness World Records that he has been saving since August.

Tillman was listed as the sixth oldest person in the world then, but Stewart has marked tiny X's in the margin as those above her passed away. [Link]
There's no sense waiting till the last minute, so I've started my own list of people older than me:
Emma Faust Tillman
Gerald Ford
Art Buchwald
Ringo Starr
Saddam Hussein
My kindergarten teacher
The short guy on Barney Miller
