LongeviQuest is saddened to report the passing of Dulcie Fawcett. She was born in Balaklava, South Australia, Australia on 30 January 1913 and passed away in Geraldton, Western Australia, Australia on 2 November 2023 at 110 years, 276 days. On 31 March 2023, following the death of 111-year-old Gwen Moore of Queensland, she became the second-oldest living person in Australia, after Dutch-born Catherina van der Linden.
In 1926, Fawcett and her family left South Australia for a rural area in Western Australia. They settled in Dudawa, where Fawcett lived until 1938. She was homeschooled for one year before attending Dudawa State School. After moving to Belmont in late 1939, Fawcett hot married in Perth in 1940. They had four daughters. The couple lived in Arrino until 1949, when they moved to Nabawa. In 1974, they relocated to Yetna.
At her family’s request, she later resided at Harbour Pines Retirement Village in Geraldton, where she stayed until her passing.
LongeviQuest is extending our deepest condolences to the bereaved family and friends of Mrs. Dulcie Fawcett.
