Marguerite Garde was a validated American supercentenarian who died in 2016 at the age of 110.

Marguerite Garde was born in New York City on 23 March 1909. Growing up in the Bronx during the Great Depression, she had to work as a young teenager to support her family. She trained to be a secretary in Manhattan and later worked in radio at the Rockefeller Center during the lead-up to World War II. She was a wife and a mother to 2 children.

Garde enjoyed a variety of hobbies like knitting, crocheting, baking, gardening, and reading. After raising her children, she rekindled her legal secretary career and continued to work until retirement.

In her later years, Garde embraced independent living at St. Francis Residential Community in Denville, New Jersey. At 103, she transitioned to a retirement home in Parsippany, but her active spirit remained strong.  She stayed healthy and active well into her centenarian years, continuing her exercise of taking long walks until she was 107.
