Maria Emilia Eriksson (née Karlsson; 27 March 1900 – 10 January 2011) was a Swedish verified supercentenarian.

Biography

She was born as Maria Emilia Karlsson in Sigtuna, Sweden on 27 March 1900. When she was 32 years old, she married Axel Eriksson. The couple never had any children together. Maria became a widow in 1970. Reportedly, being a supercentenarian didn't mean that much to her. As she explained, seeing all her old friends die made her feel lonely and she preferred it when she was young, healthy and working.

She attributed her longevity to good genetics in her family. Maria Eriksson died in Enkoping, Sweden on 10 January 2011 at the age of 110 years, 288 days.
