Suzanne Massoutie was born as Suzanne Ginestet in Gaillac, Tarn, Occitanie, France on 16 December 1911. However, she claims to have been born on 14 December 1911, and that her parents registered her two days later.

In 1932, she married Pierre Massoutie, the son of a baker in Brens. She then worked as a baker during 31 years, near the church of Brens. The couple had 3 children: Henri, Marie-Louise, and Alain.

On her 100th birthday in 2011, Massoutie was visited by the mayor of Brens. The ADMR of the town organized a birthday party for her.

On her 106th birthday in 2017, Massoutie was visited by the 11 members of the city council for youth of Brens. At the time, she was still living in her own house in the town, and hadn't any health problem. She said: "The doctor visits me every month, but he never founds anything, except that I see less clearly."

Suzanne Massoutie currently lives in the nursing home Saint-Francois in Cadalen, Tarn, Occitanie, France, at the age of 110 years, 42 days. She currently is the seventh-oldest known living person in Occitanie, as well as the third-oldest known living person in Tarn department, after Jeanne Chabbert and Leontine Escande.
