Margaret Ethel Fish (née Willetts; 7 March 1899 – 12 March 2011)[1][2] of Wilstead, Bedfordshire became the oldest person in the United Kingdom (at the age of 111 years, 225 days) following the death of 111-year-old Elsie Steele on 18 October 2010[3] until her own death on 12 March 2011, aged 112 years, 5 days.

Biography[edit]

She was born at Tower Hamlets and married Frank Fish, a World War I veteran, in 1928. Frank died in 1987 at the age of 89 of a heart and lung condition.[4] Margaret was a dressmaker and lived independently at Cople until the age of 104.[5] Later, she moved to live with her 71-year-old daughter Barbara for two years, and then she moved into Danecroft Nursing Home in Wilstead.[4]

Fish enjoyed television and having a good meal. When asked about her recipe to a long life she said to "not worry about it"; that there is no secret.[5]

She died in her nursing home on 12 March 2011, five days after her 112th birthday, since which time her health had declined.[6]

Fish had two daughters, Barbara and Elsie; several grandchildren, and a great-grandchild.[5]
