Maria Gomes Valentim (née da Silva; 9 July 1896 – 21 June 2011) was a validated Brazilian supercentenarian who was the world's oldest validated living person from 4 November 2010, upon the death of Eugenie Blanchard, to her own death on 21 June 2011. She was the only validated supercentenarian from Brazil until the validation of Alida Grubba Rudge on 28 July 2015.

Her father, Washington Gomes da Silva, died 13 days before turning 99 years.

After Eugenie Blanchard died on 4 November 2010, Maria, at the age of 114, became the world's oldest person. However, her claim wasn't validated until 18 May 2011. Gomes Valentim was the oldest validated person from Brazil until Francisca Celsa dos Santos surpassed her age in October 2019.
