Eudoxie Baboul (1 October 1901 – 1 July 2016) was a supercentenarian from French Guiana who was the oldest living person in France and fifth-oldest validated living person in the world at the time of her death. She lived in Matoury. She is the fourth-oldest validated French person ever, behind Jeanne Calment, Marie Bremont and Lucile Randon.


Eudoxie Firminie Baboul was born in French Guiana on 1 October 1901. Though she was born a day earlier, on 30 September 1901, and this was widely reported in the media, both her birth record and ID card showed Oct 1 (cite to GRG News). In younger years, she cultivated vegetables and sold them. She never married, but had several children, all of whom she outlived. She had three grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren.

In 2011, she moved to Matoury, where she lived with her 54-year-old grandson Joubert. From 2013, she was bedridden. She died on 1 July 2016 at the age of 114 years, 274 days.
