Eugenie-Marguerite Larmignat [French: Eugénie] (née Mesnard; born 9 February 1911) is a French supercentenarian whose age is currently unvalidated by the Gerontology Research Group (GRG).


Eugénie-Marguerite Mesnard was born in Chateauroux, Centre-Val de Loire, France on 9 February 1911. Her real first name is Eugenie-Marguerite, but she prefers to be called Marguerite, having always disliked Eugenie. Her earliest memory was at age 3, when the police announced her brother's death to her parents. During her life, she worked as a secretary (both as an executive secretary at an insurance company in Chartres and even at the military base in Deols). Her husband died in the 1960s. She moved to Nébouzat in 1997 and never left the department of Puy-de-Dome ever since. She moved to retirement home 'Les Roches de Saint-Ours-les-Roches' in October 2017.

She became the oldest living person in Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes, following the death of Marcel Meys on 15 December 2021.

Larmignat currently lives in Saint-Ours, Puy-de-Dome, Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes, France at the age of 111 years, 137 days. She is the oldest living person in Puy-de-Dome departement and Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes.
