Araraquara, São Paulo, Brazil — Mrs. Fiorinda Rogante de Godoy, one of the oldest living residents of the state of São Paulo, passed away on May 20th, just 13 days after her 111th birthday. Her passing was confirmed by the Araraquara News.

Mrs. Rogante de Godoy was born in Santa Lucia, São Paulo, on 7 May 1913 (claimed birth on 26 June). Her parents were Italian immigrants who arrived in Brazil in 1901, and subsequently worked on coffee farms. She had nine siblings, all of whom she survived. The family eventually moved to Dobrada, where young Fiorinda met her future husband.

After marrying Paula de Godoy in 1933, the couple had one daughter in 1935, but the marriage did not last as her husband died just six years into the marriage. She decided not to marry again. At some point they moved to Potirendaba, where she was hired to work as a maid. When her daughter grew up, they moved to Araraquara with the help of her family, where her daughter got employed.

LongeviQuest sends our deepest condolences to the bereaved family and friends of Fiorinda Rogante de Godoy.
