LongeviQuest is delighted to share that Klavdiya Gadyuchkina celebrated her claimed 114th birthday. She is a Russian supercentenarian validated by the European Supercentenarian Organisation. 

Klavdiya was born on 5 December 1910 (despite claiming it was 24 November 1909) in the village of Norskoye, Yaroslavl Oblast, Russia. Her validation type is classified as low-level classification so LongeviQuest is yet to acknowledge her age validation.

At the young age of 15, she started working at a spinning factory as an auxiliary worker. She then dedicated her career to this establishment by progressing into the roles of a spinner, assistant foreman, and production leader.

At some point in her life, she married Sergey Petrovich and had five children with him. Her eldest son was born right after the beginning of World War II while her youngest was born in 1945.  

When asked about her secret for having a long life, she would say “You have to work and treat everyone kindly.”

Klavdiya is currently staying in Yaroslavl, Yaroslavl Oblast, Russia.
