BIOGRAPHY

Crétinon was born in in the commune Istres in the Bouches-du-Rhône department, Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, France, on 10 March 1914. She was an only child, and she grew up with her aunts and grandparents after her mother passed away when she was only 14 months old.

In 1938, she married René Crétinon, and the couple spent the following 42 years living in Port-de-Bouc. They had at least two children, Mireille in 1939, and Claude in 1945. Her husband worked at Lafarge, an industrial company specializing in cement, while she spent her entire career as a management assistant for a ship supply company.

Around the age of 104, she moved into a nursing home. At the age of 109, she had six great-great-grandchildren. Her daughter suggested that the secret to her longevity could lie in her moderate lifestyle; she never overindulged in food or drink and never smoked.

RECOGNITION

Her age has been validated by the European Supercentenarian Organization (ESO), but it has not yet been recognized by LongeviQuest.
