Biography

Jelizaveta Kolakucka was born in Russian Empire (present-day Russia) on 7 September 1910. In 1946, she moved to Riga to work in the "Aurora" sock factory, where she started in the workshop and was still working as a laundry manager at the age of 80.

On 7 September 2020, she celebrated her claimed 110th birthday in Riga, the capital of Latvia.

She was cared for by family members, with a god-daughter attributing her long life to a healthy start saying: "I can't be sure but probably it is genetic, and likely also because she was born and raised in nature, spending her youth in the fresh air."

On her birthday, Kolakucka received a greeting from the Riga City Council and a special 150 euro grant given to all Riga's centenarians. In 2019, 75 Rigans received this benefit, while in the first eight months of 2020, 68 Rigans received it.

Jelizaveta Kolakucka died in Riga, Latvia on 28 July 2021 at the age of 110 years, 324 days.
