Georgette Jeanmaire (née Vitry; 13 January 1857 – 6 June 1968) was a French supercentenarian whose age is currently unvalidated by the Gerontology Research Group (GRG).


Georgette Jeanmaire was born in Montier-en-Der, Haute-Marne, Grand Est, France, on 13 January 1857. Her parents were Louis Vitry and Pauline Lombardot. She had at least 4 siblings (two brothers and two sisters).

On 23 October 1877, in the village where she was born, she married Arthur Jeanmaire, and had at least 3 children: Cecile, Denise, and Henri.

Her sister Helene Vitry died several months before reaching age 101.

Georgette Jeanmaire died on 6 June 1968, in Enghien-les-Bains, Val-d'Oise, Ile-de-France, France. She was the doyenne of France at the time of her death.

Longevity records

If her age were validated, she would be a candidate for the title of world’s oldest person from the 21 March 1968 death of John Mosley Turner until her own death (alongside Narcissa Rickman and Johanna Booysen), as well as the first French supercentenarian. Although Ferdinise Nebolle (from the overseas department of Martinique) likely reached this status before then, her age is currently unvalidated by the GRG.
