Grace will be dearly missed by her many friends and neighbours and by the wider Bermondsey community.
We are all very sad today but we pay tribute to Grace for her wonderful, vibrant and long life, for her commitment to her faith, her family and her community, and we know that a woman of such strong Christian faith faced death with no fear.
Although she found her failing strength frustrating, right up until her last week Grace's memory and intellect were undimmed.
Grace was engaged during the First World War but her fiancé who was killed on active service. She never married and worked as a seamstress and for the Government until her retirement - about half a century ago.
Local MP Simon Hughes says Grace was visited at a nursing home in the last 24 hours by her local parish priest as well as several close friends.
London's oldest resident, Grace Jones, has died aged 113. Grace who lived in Bermondsey was born on December 7 1899, and was the only surviving Briton to have lived for the whole of the 20th century. She died peacefully on Thursday morning.
