LongeviQuest is pleased to announce the age validation of Erva Lynch of the United States at age 110. She was born in Brockton, Massachusetts, USA, on 8 June 1905. She lost her mother in infancy and bounced between various homes, including farms and family friends. After her father remarried, she spent her teenage years in Saugus. She even delivered medicine during the flu pandemic.

After graduating high school, she studied business before entering the workforce as a phone operator. Later on, she served doctors and lawyers in an answering service. In 1935, she married a World War I veteran and raised three children, while also having a stint at a department store.

At 72, Lynch moved in with her daughter and son-in-law, later relocating to Florida. She received letters from presidents and popes, knitted for soldiers, and exercised daily, even at 100. A heart procedure at 106 was her first major medical event. Celebrated on the “Today” show and by Massachusetts officials, her 110th birthday was a testament to her clean living, positive attitude, and sharp vision.
