Maria Pereira was born in Mondim da Beira, Tarouca, Kingdom of Portugal on 14 June 1868. Her parents were Antonio Jose Pereira and Maria Bernarda. Maria never married or had children. She moved to Lisbon when she was younger and worked as seamstress.

Maria Pereira died in Sao Mamede, Lisbon, Portugal on 24 June 1979 at the age of 111 years, 10 days. If her age was true, she would have been the oldest living person in Europe after the death of Katharina Braun of West Germany on 5 February 1979, as she was just five days older than Frederique Noel of France.
