Kids Encyclopedia Facts

Marie-Louise Meilleur (August 29, 1880 – April 16, 1998) was a Canadian supercentenarian who became the oldest person ever from Canada and the fifth-oldest person in history. Upon her death in April 1998, she was 117 years, 230 days old and the second-oldest person ever (behind the disputed Jeanne Calment), but other people have pushed her back to fifth place.

In her last years, she was so weak that she couldn't see, hear, walk, or talk.
