Early Life

Emilienne Becarmin was born as Emilienne Vousmoi in Saint-Claude, Guadeloupe, France on 4 June 1911. She had several children, including Antoine Constan. She was a farmer and a merchant, and used to eat healthy vegetables of the countryside. She always loved the life, and is called "Mimi" by her relatives.

Later Life

In October 2015, like four other elderly people, Becarmin visited the university campus of Camp-Jacob, in the occasion of the "Semaine Bleue" (Blue Week). At the age of 106, Becarmin was reported to be very vivid and alert.

On her 107th birthday in 2018, Becarmin was visited by her family, friends, and by the mayor of Saint-Claude Elie Califer [French: Élie]. Her granddaughter said: "My grandmother is 107, it's... we must be proud. She forgets nothing: olds songs, and that." She was reported to be the doyenne of the commune of Saint-Claude.

Becarmin celebrated her 110th birthday in June 2021. She celebrated it with her family (7 generations), and was visited by the mayor of Saint-Claude (still Elie Califer), the vice-president of CCAS Armelle Jacoby, and the vice-president of departemental council of Guadeloupe Brigitte Rodes. She received a medal of the departemental council of Guadeloupe.

Becarmin currently lives in Saint-Claude, Guadeloupe, France, at the age of 111 years, 75 days. She is currently the third-oldest known living person in Guadeloupe, after Juliana Sambin and Justine Cognon.
