Dora Olafsdottir [Icelandic: Dóra Ólafsdóttir] (6 July 1912 – 4 February 2022) was an Icelandic centenarian who was the oldest living person in Iceland at the time of her death. She is also the oldest person ever to die in Iceland.
Dora Olafsdottir was born in Grýtubakkahreppur, Iceland on 6 July 1912. For 40 years, she was a telephonist in Akureyri and lived at Norðurgata street along with her husband, Þóri Áskelsson, a sailor. They were also gardeners. Thorir was an enthusiast of the Icelandic language and a friend of the poet David Stefánsson.
Olafsdottir said in an interview that she attributed her longevity to healthy food and exercise. She became the oldest living person in Iceland after the death of Jensina Andresdottir on 18 April 2019.
In late December 2020 at the age of 108, Olafsdottir received the COVID-19 vaccine.
On 13 December 2021 at the age of 109 years, 160 days, she surpassed the age of Jensina Andresdottir, becoming the oldest known person ever who lived in Iceland (as Gudrun Bjornsdottir, oldest ever to be born in Iceland, died in Canada).
Olafsdottir died in Norðurgata, Iceland on 4 February 2022 at the age of 109 years, 213 days. She was the last surviving Icelandic person born before 1917.
