LongeviQuest is saddened to report the passing of Viorica Hogaș. She was born on 9 February 1915 and passed away in Suceava, Romania on 25 November 2023, at the age of 108. She was a wife and a mother to 1 daughter. Hogaş worked for a while as a teacher and raised her only child as best she knew, even though there were days when she had nothing to eat.


Hogaș was the oldest known woman in Romania, following the death of 109-year-old Maria Mihai on 2 February 2022. At the time of her death, she was the second-oldest known living person in Romania, behind Ilie Ciocan (born 1913).

LongeviQuest is extending our deepest condolences to the bereaved family and friends of Mrs. Viorica Hogaș.
