In Mayotte, a French overseas province in the Indian Ocean, the oldest presumably long-lived French woman died. Tava Colo lived 118 years. Her family reported it to Agence France-Presse on Sunday.
It is believed that Tava Kolo was born on December 22, 1902 in the Pasamiente village of Mamoudzou municipality. This date is written on her identity card, but experts assert that the civil services in Mamoud will not operate accurately. The woman reportedly never left the village.
Tava Colo is reported to have been married four times and have only given birth to her first husband, two daughters born in 1930 and 1935. The two daughters have already passed away. According to Mayotte’s official statistics, she had 10 great-grandchildren, 43 great-grandchildren, and 59 great-grandchildren.
The oldest French woman is now Sister Andre. The nun, actually called Lucille Randon, is 117 years old and joined the Catholic order in 1944. She survived COVID-19 and celebrated her 117th birthday in Toulon in February.
