LongeviQuest is pleased to announce the age validation of Fumie Suzuki Japan at age 111. She was born in Ōtaki, Chiba Prefecture, Japan on 20 June 1912. Suzuki pursued studies in etiquette at a mansion in Tokyo, where she met her future husband.
After marrying, the couple moved to Kanda, Tokyo. They evacuated back to her hometown in Chiba Prefecture with their four young children on March 10, 1945, the day before the Tokyo air raids. They lived in Chiba for several years after World War II and had their youngest child in 1947. In 1949, they returned to Shibuya, Tokyo. After raising her children, she devoted her time to caring for her grandchildren, traveling regularly between her children’s homes in Tokyo, Chiba, Saitama, and Kanagawa. Known for her straightforward personality, Suzuki consistently instilled the value of honesty in her children, teaching them that “lying is not good” and emphasizing the importance of living a life with integrity.
In her early 80s, Suzuki moved to Atsugi City in Kanagawa Prefecture, close to her eldest son’s home. She chose to live independently and continued to pursue various hobbies. She also developed a passion for creating picture letters. Suzuki also frequently traveled with her children throughout her later years, venturing to destinations like Hakone and Atami until her late 90s. Until the age of 107, she enjoyed crafting letters, making dolls, and engaging in various handicrafts. At 107, she suffered a fall at home, resulting in a broken hip. After a two-month hospitalization, she moved into a nursing home in Aikawa Town.
In September 2023, Suzuki was reported as the fifth-oldest living person in Kanagawa Prefecture.
