LongeviQuest is saddened to report the passing of Martinique’s oldest living person, Philomene Fibleuil, at the claimed age of 110 years old. Her age is yet to be validated by LongeviQuest.
Mrs. Fibleuil was born in the French overseas department of Martinique, on 10 December 1912, where she was the oldest living person at the time of her death.
At some point she married a farmer with a surname Etienne, and the couple had eight children together. Her husband focused on his farming activities, while Philomene was in charge of selling the products to the market.
On 23 September 2021, she became the oldest known living woman in Martinique, following the death of 110-year-old Vincente Constance Newton.
On 5 October 2021, she became the oldest known living person in Martinique, following the death of 112-year-old Jules Theobald.
Mrs. Fibleuil passed away on 11 June 2023, at 110 years old, in Moise neighbourhood, Le Robert, Martinique, France.
LongeviQuest offers our condolences to her family and loved ones.
