Olinda Mascarin (née Gasparotto; born 4 December 1909) is an Italian-born Canadian supercentenarian whose age is currently unvalidated by the Gerontology Research Group.


Mascarin was born in Chions, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Italy, on 4 December 1909. She had nine siblings (two of whom were still living as of 2019), and they grew up on a farm. As a child, she left school after Grade Three to work as a brick loader.

In 1959, Mascarin moved to Windsor, Ontario, Canada to join her husband John. She raised four children, and for a time was the cook and housekeeper for the priests at St. Angela Merici Church in Windsor.

Mascarin currently lives in a retirement home in LaSalle, Ontario, Canada. She reportedly eats bacon and eggs every morning and has a shot of Sambuca in her coffee. She no longer speaks English and refuses to wear hearing aids. She celebrated her 110th birthday in December 2019.
