Bot at the age of 114
|Birth:||14 January 1905|
Mont-Louis, Languedoc-Roussillon, France
|Age:||115 years, 250 days|
Bot was born in the citadel of Mont Louis where her father was a soldier. She spent fifty years as a bookkeeper in a car garage on Poincare Boulevard in Perpignan. She never married and had no children.
Bot currently lives in Perpignan, Pyrenees-Orientales, Occitanie, France. She reportedly has no major health problems, and is able to move with her walker between her bedroom and her living room. Her only difficulty is poor hearing but she is still able to watch television.
Following the death of Shin Matsushita on 27 August 2019, Bot was originally believed to have become the third-oldest living person, but the subsequent validation of Brazil’s Francisca Celsa dos Santos on 9 July 2020 meant Bot actually became the fourth-oldest validated person in the world.
