Though born into a Protestant family, Sister Andre later converted to Catholicism and was baptized when she was 26 years old. She joined an order of nuns, the Daughter of Charity 15 years after she decided to join the Catholic Church.

David Tavella, a spokesman from her nursing home, shared the news of her death on Tuesday. He also stated that the sister desired to join her beloved brother.

Sister André, despite being blind and saddled in a wheelchair – Sister Andre cared for other elderly people, including people younger than herself.

She entered the Guinness Books of Records in April 2022 as the world’s oldest person following the death of Kane Tanka, the Japanese woman who lived until she was 119 years old. Sister Andre also entered the Guinness Book of Records as the oldest person to recover from Covid-19.

She highlighted in one of her last interviews; “People should help each other and love each other instead of hating. If we shared all that, things would be a lot better.”
