Sato was born in Fukushima, Japan, and presently resides in Saitama. She became the oldest living person in Saitama prefecture on 4 July 2009, at the age of 109 years, 80 days, following the death of Yoshi Kobayashi (2 September 1898 - 4 July 2009), who died at the age of 110 years, 305 days.
Shike Sato was the youngest validated living supercentenarian and youngest validated living Japanese at one time. At present, Sumie Gomagano (born 15 April 1900) is the only validated living Japanese supercentenarian younger than her.
Added to GRG's Table E on 18 April 2010, aged 110 years, 33 days, she places 71st out of 90 validated living supercentenarians on the GRG and Louis Epstein lists as of 12 December 2010, and is the 23rd oldest living Japanese person and the 125th oldest Japanese ever.
He was accepted to Louis Epstein's list as of his 1 November 2010 update, aged 110 years, 2 days.
Goossenaerts was born in Horendonk-Essen, Antwerp province, to father Josephus "Jozef" Goossenaerts and mother Joanna Van Ginneken, and still lives in Antwerp. Notably, Antwerp was the home of previous Belgium's oldest titleholder Bernardina Van Dommelen, who died on 16 April 2010.
Goossenaerts married Catharina Van Meel, nine years his junior, on 18 January 1930. The marriage lasted for 67 years until Van Meel's death on 2 July 1997, aged 87. Out of their five children, three are living: Maria Goossenaerts, Frans Goossenaerts, and Jozef Goossenaerts, supposedly named after his grandfather. Irma Goossenaerts, another daughter, died at 78, and another child, Marcel Goossenaerts, died at 74.
Jan Goossenaerts worked as a mason during his life, and retired at 65.
He moved into a nursing home, Sint Michaël, in Essen, the northernmost tip of Antwerp province, in 2007, then aged almost 107.
Goossenaerts is reported to still be in good health, and takes walks every day in the courtyard of his nursing home. His secret to longevity is reported to be "to work hard and eat 2 slices of bread with pear syrup every morning."

More than 250 people attended Goossenaerts' 110th birthday party, including the mayor and Belgium's Flemish Minister-President. He also received a letter from the king and queen of Belgium. Over ten radio and television reporters were present at that occasion.
Goossenaerts is currently the 89th oldest living validated supercentenarian out of a total of 90 on both the GRG and Louis Epstein's lists, as well as the world's fifth-oldest living male, and will break the all-time record for the oldest non-emigrant Belgian male on record on 18 January 2011, Aimée Rensonnet's 111th birthday, when he surpasses Louis Marion (10 October 1893 - 28 December 2003), who died at the age of 110 years, 79 days.
21 December 2010 - Jan Goossenaerts is now the third-oldest person in Belgium following the death of Aimée Rensonnet on 15 December 2010.
Update: Jan Goossenaerts died on 21 March 2012, aged 111 years, 143 days. Click for a report on his death in Dutch.
At the time of his death, he was the world's third-oldest living male and the 56th-oldest male on record, as well as the oldest man ever to pass away in Belgium. (Belgium-born Jan Machiel Reyskens, who emigrated to the Netherlands, died in 1990 aged 111 years, 241 days).
The title of Belgium's oldest living male, a position Goossenaerts had held for the past five years and 38 days, now passes to Oscar Joseph Coulembier, born 31 December 1905.
With his passing, Shelby Harris of Illinois, United States, born on 31 March 1901, now becomes the world's third-oldest living male at 110 years, 356 days.
Goossenaerts was also Europe's oldest male at the time of his death, a title he had held for the last year and 274 days, following the death of Stanley Lucas of Bude, Cornwall, England, aged 110 years, 157 days. This position now passes to Spanish Francisco Fernández, born on 24 July 1901.
His death also leaves only one remaining living Belgian supercentenarian, Germaine Degueldre of Hainaut province, at 111 years, 177 days. Degueldre, born on 26 September 1900, is the country's oldest resident from 23 June 2011, and as of 21 March 2012 is fifteen days short of becoming the second-oldest Belgian on record.
One of five daughters, Buten attended the Philadelphia High School for Girls and worked as a secretary after completing school. Buten also graduated from the William Penn High School for Girls, where she was stated to be student vice president.
Buten, who was the oldest living Jewish at the time of her death, was active in Jewish matters during her life, according to her family, as well as being a member of many clubs and organisations.
She once worked at Elder Craftsmen (now closed), which provided the elderly artisans in Philadelphia a sales outlet for handmade goods. Buten once stated, "It is easy to give money, but the most important thing is to give of one’s self." She was also reported to have scored a hole-in-one in golf in her 70s in the 1970s.
Buten was also reported to enjoy being with her family, cooking her descendants' favourite things and regularly taking them out shopping.
It was also reported that despite her humble upbringing, Buten developed a taste for beautiful things such as china, crystal, silver, and antiques.
She lived with a home aide in the final years of her life, and was able to drive in her 90s. She also enjoyed gardening.
Buten originally claimed a birth date of 1 February 1899; however, her family later found a 1915 naturalization application for her father that stated that his daughter in question, Buten, had been born on 13 April 1899. In a separate event she was stated to have been born in 1901.
Another document appeared to indicate that the Buten family had migrated to the United States in 1904, and not 1903 as originally believed.
Buten was validated by the Gerontology Research Group on 8 September 2010. That same month, Buten passed away, at the age of 111 years, 164 days, on 24 September 2010 and was buried two days later. She was the 37th oldest living person at the time of her death, and the third verified person born in 1899 to die AFTER turning 111, the first being Bernardina Van Dommelen of Belgium (15 March 1899 - 16 April 2010, aged 111 years, 32 days).
She was also unofficially the oldest Jewish person at the time, taking it from German-Swiss supercentenarian Rosa Rein on 14 February 2010 upon the latter's death.
After Buten's death, the unofficial title of oldest living Jewish passed to Evelyn Kozak of New York, US. Kozak was added to GRG's Table E on 21 October 2010; her validators were named as Filipe Prista Lucas, Mark E. Muir, and an anonymous person.
Beppu and Street hold the unofficial record for the longest time that two people born on the same day have lived - if the March birth month for Street is taken, that is. Even so, issues still remain with the exact day - Street may have been born as early as 23 March. The record surpasses the present validated total by one day, being with Toyo Endo of Japan and Camille Loiseau of France. Both were born on 13 February 1892, and Endo defined the record, passing away on 3 January 2005, aged 112 years, 325 days. Loiseau went on to live until 12 August 2006, dying at the age of 114 years, 180 days.
Chikao Beppu passed away in Kagoshima, Japan, on 17 February 2010, aged 112 years, 326 days. She was (and still remains) the 35th oldest Japanese ever.
Frances Street was unvalidated for quite some time, and information was hard to find over the Internet owing to the incidence of "Frances Street" being the name of an actual location. At one point until early 2010, she was the oldest living unverified supercentenarian under the age of 113. Her claimed birthdate, then, was still 28 March 1897.
Information appeared in 2010 that stated that Street was believed to have been only 101 years old, and her claim was discounted.
In the autumn of 2010, new revelations surfaced that Street may indeed have been 113 after all. By then, Street had passed away, on 24 August 2010, at the age of 113 years, 149 days. At one point she probably was the eighth-oldest living person in the world and the oldest living African-American, just three days in front of verified "equivalent" Mississippi Winn of Louisiana.
Family information previously missing was provided in Street's online obituaries, and was used in census matches to determine that Street may indeed have been 113 when she died.
Street, who lived at Grace Nursing Home in her last days, was born in Greenville County, South Carolina, and moved to Ashville, North Carolina, where she lived for most of her life. She worked as a practical nurse in life, and left two nieces, a nephew, and many other descendants upon her death.
She was buried on 28 August 2010 and is listed as a pending case on the GRG database.
Her 111th birthday was supposedly confirmed by a visitor to this blog, who stated on 14 December that she had been visited and was still alive.
Born in the town of Habay, Ledent moved into a nursing home at age 95, even though she was still then in good health.
She married in 1922 to Camille Alphonse Halbardier, with whom she had one child. Halbardier died on 24 November 1926 owing to an accident.
She remarried in 1931 to Georges Gavroy, despite never having children with him.
At the time she turned 110, Ledent was the youngest out of the four living Belgian supercentenarians during that time, and in the worst health of the four. Yet, her condition has remained very stable all the way up to her 111th birthday.
Ledent surpassed Maria Pierson-Ledent (20 June 1899 - 6 January 2010) to become the oldest ever person from Wallonia region (Wallonia covers 55% of the territory of Belgium) on 2 July 2010, then aged 110 years, 201 days. Ledent, like Pierson-Ledent, was born in Luxembourg province; however, Pierson-Ledent later moved to Namur province, while Ledent still resides in Luxembourg to this day.
16 December 2010 - Adrienne Ledent was visited by Belgian GRG correspondents Peter Vermaelen and Anthony Croes-Lacroix for her 111th birthday in December 2010. She is reported to "not be doing well", with eyes constantly closed, and unable to communicate. Despite this, Ledent still enjoyed her party and drank champagne.

Christmas is coming. This is not surprising news, we all know. It is a time of the year full of many things, and one of these things is tradition. We all have traditions, in our family, in Seville, in Andalucía, in Spain, all over the world. One of the traditions in the Anglo speaking world is "ginger bread houses" I would like you to make a web search and write about this tradition. Describe it, tell the origins, write your comments but please, do not copy, try to write with your own words :)
