A 104-year-old woman passed away before Guinness could officially confirm her record as the oldest skydiver.

A 104-year-old woman, Dorothy Hoffner, sadly passed away a little over a week after potentially breaking the world record for the oldest skydiver. Dorothy accomplished her remarkable feat by skydiving from 13,500 feet with Skydive Chicago in Ottawa, Illinois, on October 1. Tragically, she peacefully passed away in her sleep on Monday at Brookdale Senior Living, as confirmed by the center.

“The associates at Brookdale Lake View are deeply saddened by the passing of our resident, Dorothy Hoffner,” the statement said. ” We were thrilled to see her continue to live with passion and purpose, skydiving earlier this month at 104 and ultimately proving that age is just a number. She will be greatly missed by our entire community.”

Guinness World Records is currently in the process of verifying whether Hoffner has indeed broken the record for the oldest person to undertake a skydive. As of now, the record is held by Linnéa Ingegärd Larsson of Sweden, who achieved the feat at the age of 103 in 2022, according to a report from The Associated Press.
