Biography

Jelizaveta Kolakucka was born in Russian Empire (present-day Russia) on 7 September 1910. In 1946, she moved to Riga to work in the "Aurora" sock factory, where she started in the workshop and was still working as a laundry manager at the age of 80.

On 7 September 2020, she celebrated her claimed 110th birthday in Riga, the capital of Latvia.

She is cared for by family members, with a god-daughter attributing her long life to a healthy start saying: "I can't be sure but probably it is genetic, and likely also because she was born and raised in nature, spending her youth in the fresh air."

On her birthday, Kolakucka received a greeting from the Riga City Council and a special 150 euro grant given to all Riga's centenarians. In 2019, 75 Rigans received this benefit, while in the first eight months of 2020, 68 Rigans received it.
