HILO, Hawaii >> A 107-year-old woman believed to be the Big Island's oldest resident has died.

The Hawaii Tribune-Herald reports Saramae Williams Landers died at her home in Pahoa.

Landers, a retired guidance counselor for the Renton, Wash. school district, had been honored for her longevity and civic participation by Gov. Neil Abercrombie and both houses of the state Legislature.

State Sen. Russell Ruderman of Puna says Landers might have been the oldest person in the state.

A local theater had hosted a public 107th birthday celebration for her last April.

Landers was survived by a daughter and a son. Services are planned at a later date in Boise, Idaho.
