Biography

Margaret Dowarka claimed to have been born on 1 April 1902, one of six children to her parents. She outlived both her husband and four of their thirteen children. She died on 5 July 2017 at the claimed age of 115 years and 95 days[1]. Depending on the validity of her age claim, she may have been - at the time of her death - the second-oldest living woman in Jamaica behind 117 year-old Violet Brown. Later it was revealed that Dowarka has actually born in 1911 which would make her only 106 years old[2].
