Anna Holzl was a validated American supercentenarian who died in 2016 at the age of 110.

Anna Holzl was born in Norwich, Connecticut, USA, on 17 November 1905. She was a sister, a wife, and a mother to 2 children.

Holzl inspected cutlery, worked in a hospital diet kitchen, co-founded a senior citizens group, and actively participated in church activities. After a Florida stint, she returned to Connecticut to be near family, celebrating her 105th birthday as a craftswoman, choir member, and dedicated coupon clipper for veterans.

On 18 February 2016, following the passing of 111-year-old Antonia Amore, she became the oldest known living person in the U.S. state of Connecticut.
