Alexandrine Bourree [French: Bourrée] (née Fermin) (5 June 1904 – 1 July 2014) was a French supercentenarian whose case is currently pending by the Gerontology Research Group (GRG) as of January 2015.


Alexandrine Bourree was born Alexandrine Fermin on 5 June 1904 in Manche, Normandy, France. She married Emile Bourree [French: Émile Bourrée] in 1931 and they lived in his farm in La Bazuraie, Husson, Manche. The couple had a daughter, Marie, in 1936, who later married Georges Lebrun.

Emile Bourree died in 1960, making Alexandrine a widow. Alexandrine continued to work on the farm until 1983, when she moved in with her daughter and her son-in-law. She remained with them for 27 years, until 2010, when she moved into a nursing home.

On her 110th birthday, she had a daughter, three grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren and a great-great-grandson, who visited her almost every day. Her daughter Marie was 78 when Alexandrine turned 110.

Alexandrine Bourree passed away on 1 July 2014 at the age of 110 years, 26 days, after her health began to decline.
