Veronika Zsilinszki (born 4 February 1908) is a Serbian-Hungarian supercentenarian whose age is currently unvalidated by the Gerontology Research Group (GRG). She is currently the oldest known living person in Hungary since the death of Janosne Belik, on 3 November 2018.


Veronika Zsilinszki was born into an ethnic Hungarian family in Kevevara, Austria-Hungary (present-day Kovin, Serbia), on 4 February 1908. At a young age, she moved to Bacs-Kiskun county with her parents and two siblings, near the border between Serbia and Hungary. As an adult, she worked as a maid. She had one son with a man named Endre Egi, but they were never married. She has one granddaughter and two great-grandchildren.

Zsilinszki still did gardening work even as a centenarian. Aged 110, she is still interested in the news, and reads newspaper without glasses. She said that her secret of a long life is “that you are not idle and always work”. Shortly after her 110th birthday, she was visited by the former Mayor of Baja, Robert Zsigo. At the age of 110, she lives with her daughter-in-law and granddaughter.

Zsilinszki currently lives in Baja, Hungary, at the age of 112 years, 24 days. She is the oldest known living person born in present-day Serbia.
