Karin Larsson (17 May 1904 – 24 May 2014) was a Swedish supercentenarian who, as of January 2015, is pending by the Gerontology Research Group (GRG).[1]


Karin Eivor Larsson grew up on a farm in Tomasboda, Gronbo, Sweden. Thereafter the family moved to Sundbo. Larsson worked at the university hospital in Uppsala for a few years; however, she would later return to Sundbo to care for her parents. In 1944, she married Erik Larsson and gave birth to her only daughter, Kerstin. The family settled in Gronbo. After she was widowed in 1965, she moved to Sundo once again. Reportedly, Karin Larsson was blind for the last 20 years of her life.

She was the oldest living person in Sweden since the passing of Ellen Vestling until her own death in Lindesberg on 24 May 2014 aged 110 years, 7 days. [2]
