LongeviQuest is pleased to announce the age validation of Elizabeth Jordan at 110 years old. She was an Australian supercentenarian who was among the top five oldest living persons in the country upon her death.
Elizabeth Jordan was born on 15 January 1912 in Ipswich, Queensland, Australia.
She remembered being visited by her grandparents in a horse-drawn carriage when she was attending West Ipswich Girls’ School.
In 1936, Elizabeth married Joseph Jordan with whom she had two children with. The couple built their first home in Ebbw Vale, which is a suburb of Ipswich. Unfortunately, Mrs. Jordan lost the majority of her wedding photos after a flood destroyed her brother’s house.
During her 100s, she still enjoyed indoor bowling and living independently, passing the time by knitting for her beloved grandchildren. She even entered the Ipswich Show with her crocheted items starting from the 1960s onwards. The show eventually had an award named after Elizabeth Jordan.
Elizabeth moved to an aged care facility in nearby Brassall when she was 109 years old.
Mrs. Jordan passed away on 6 March 2022 at the age of 110 years old. At the time of her death, she was recognized as one of the top five oldest living people in Australia.
