LongeviQuest is pleased to announce the age validation of Ana Luisa Garcia of Puerto Rico at age 110. She was born in Cidra, Puerto Rico on 22 August 1913. She is currently the oldest known living woman in Puerto Rico. Garcia has 11 siblings and four of her sisters were teachers. This inspired her to be a teacher as well.
Garcia graduated from a pedagogy school after studying for two years. She began her teaching career in Patillas at the age of 20, commuting to school every day by foot or horseback. She retired from teaching in 1965 but has remained a lifelong learner, reading newspapers and books to this day.
Ana Luisa Garcia currently lives in San Juan, Puerto Rico with her daughter, pianist and composer Awilda Villarini (born 1940).
