Virginia Moyano Ponce (17 May 1904 – 20 June 2017)[1] was a validated Argentinian supercentenarian, the second ever validated supercentenarian in the history of Argentina, after Luisa Roncoroni.


Secundina Virginia Moyano Ponce was born on 17 May 1904 as the daughter of Jose Moyano and Casimira Ponce. She was the sixth of eight children. She was baptized on 9 July 1904. For the last four years of her life, Virginia lived in San Jose Nursing Home with her niece, María Olga Gallo Moyano. Virginia said that the secret to living so long is "remembering beautiful memories that make you laugh". Virginia remembered the number on her ID card, her birthdate, and her birthplace: "Córdoba capital, barrio General Paz". She also remembered that she had attended school until 6th grade, and the name of her boyfriend in her youth, Andrés Bergontini, who was a Chilean man from Santiago, but he left her to marry another more wealthy woman. She never married and had no children, but had a large number of nephews and nieces. Her niece said that Virginia, at age 112, still ate pies, pizza, eggs and gelatin.

At the end of April 2016, Olga Gallo, her niece, passed away. As a result, Virginia moved to live with her grand-nephews and great-grand-nephews. On 17 May 2017, Virginia Moyano turned 113 and became the first person in Argentina to reach this age.

Moyano died on 20 June 2017 in La Rioja, Argentina, at the age of 113 years, 34 days. She is the oldest verified person ever from Argentina.[2]
