|Age:||110 years, 131 days|
Delorme-Martel was born in Ham-Sud, Quebec, Canada, on 21 October 1909. She spent most of her adult life in the city of Stoke, Quebec, where she married and had five children. She worked as a midwife, but would also grow vegetables and go hunting and fishing to feed her family.
At the age of 99, Delorme-Martel moved into a nursing home in Sherbrooke, Quebec. In 2016, when she turned 107, her daughter Nicole claimed that the secret to her mother’s long life was that she never smoked nor drank alcohol, and paid attention to her eating habits.
On Delorme-Martel’s 110th birthday in 2019, it was reported that she was hard of hearing and wheelchair-bound, as well as missing her home in Stoke. Three of her five children (Nicole, Jean-Marc, and Monique) were still alive in 2019.
Delorme-Martel currently lives in Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada, at the age of 110 years, 131 days.
