The oldest living resident from the French overseas department of Guadeloupe, Mrs. Émilienne Bécarmin, celebrates her 113th birthday today, on June 4th. Her birthday was confirmed by NewsAntilles.

Mrs. Bécarmin was born as Émilienne Voumoi in Saint-Claude, Guadeloupe, on 4 June 1911. She worked as a farmer and merchant in Basse-Terre. At some point, she got married and had children. At the age of 111, she had great-great-grandchildren.

On 16 September 2022, she became the oldest (known) living person in Guadeloupe. At the moment, she is the third-oldest living person in France, after Marie-Rose Tessier and Andrée Bertoletto, who reside on the mainland. She is also the oldest (known) living person in the Caribbean region.

We extend our heartfelt congratulations to Mrs. Bécarmin on her 113th birthday.
