Lourenca Maria de Jesus (27 Dec 1900 – 31 Jan 2013) was a Brazilian supercentenarian whose age is currently unvalidated by the Gerontology Research Group (GRG).


Born on December 27, 1900, in a farm in the municipality of Monte Azul (MG), Lourença had a difficult life. Forged in the field work, he did everything. He cleaned rice, weeded, made flour and brown sugar, planted corn. Strong woman, does not bow to the difficulties of life. Time does not seem to bring it down. In the mid-20th century, aboard a railroad train, it landed in Goiás. From Monte Azul to Anápolis. He drove in an old car to a farm where today is the municipality of Santa Rita do Novo Destino. In the late 1970s, he moved to Goianésia, where he lives today. For her, the secret of living so long is God's will. "He who sustains me, who gave me this gift, I am a very happy person," says the woman, who has gone through a whole century, living in her skin a lot of hardship, but always showing the strength that only enlightened beings show to have.
