Violet, who's also known as 'Aunt V' was a mother of six and a great-grandmother several times over. 
When asked her secret to long life after her 110th birthday, she told the Jamaican Observer:  
'Really and truly, when people ask what me eat and drink to live so long, I say to them that I eat everything, except pork and chicken, and I don't drink rum and them things. You know, sometimes I ask myself, 'Am I really 110 years old?' because I don't feel like 110.'
She added her 'faith in serving God, and believing strongly in the teaching of the bible' were also fundamental to a long and healthy life.
The 117-year-old had been slated to be visited by personnel from The Guinness Book of World Records before she passed away.
Following her death, 117-year-old Nabi Tajima, of Japan, is now the world’s oldest person.
