Biography

Marie Bremont was born in Noellet, France, on 25 April 1886. Her father was a lumberjack. Her first husband, railroad worker Constant Lemaitre, was killed in the First World War. She married again to a taxi driver, Florentin Bremont, who died in 1967. She had no children. During her life, she worked as a farmer, a nanny, a seamstress and pharmaceutical factory worker.

At the age of 103, Bremont was hit by a car and broke her arm as a result. She lived in a retirement home in Cande, France, during the last years of her life.

Bremont died on 6 June 2001 at the age of 115 years, 42 days. Upon her death, the title passed to Maud Farris-Luse of the United States. She was the second-oldest French person ever behind Jeanne Calment at the time of her death and held that title until Lucile Randon surpassed her age on 26 March 2019. She is presently the third-oldest French person ever.
