Lourdina Conceição Lobo: First Validated Indian Supercentenarian

LongeviQuest has validated the age claim for Lourdina Conceição Lobo (1908-2021) of India.  Mrs. Lobo’s posthumous recognition makes her the first ever validated Indian supercentenarian, and she was likely one of the longest-lived people in the history of India.

Mrs. Lobo was born in the current state of Goa, at the time a Portuguese colony.  She lived most in her life in Goa, aside from a period spent living in Bombay (Mumbai) after getting married in 1944.  She gave birth to her first child at the age of 37, and would later have three more children.  Despite being diagnosed with diabetes at a young age, Mrs. Lobo lived an active life until well into her 90s.  She spoke four languages: Konkani, English, Latin, and Portuguese.  At the time of her death, she had many close family members living nearby including a sister in her 90s and at least one great-grandchild.

While two prior validated supercentenarians had been born in India under the British Raj, Mrs. Lobo was the first validated supercentenarian to live most of her life and pass away in India.

Mrs. Lobo’s age was validated by LongeviQuest on 20 January 2023 based on the research of Jeffrey Xu.
