Biography

Yvonne Lomet was born in Paris, Ile-de-France, France on 26 November 1908. Her father, a Breton, was an upholsterer, and her mother was a seamstress who worked in a large factory. Lomet was the oldest of 13 children; her youngest brother, who was 26 years younger than her, died in 2015.

Lomet’s father found work in the Loir-et-Cher department, so the family moved to the city of Blois in 1914. Lomet studied at the Marie-Tessier school in Blois in order to learn sewing; she then worked as a sewing teacher in the city of Nevers. She retired in 1973, then moved back to Blois. Lomet stated that “I never got married and it never hurt me. In reality, I didn’t have time.”

Lomet lived independently until the age of 108. In June 2017, her 101-year-old sister Lucienne, a nun, moved into a nursing home; Lomet joined her that same month. Her 110th birthday in 2018 was marked with festivities and a visit from the mayor of Blois, Marc Gricourt.

Lomet died in Blois, Loir-et-Cher, Centre-Val de Loire, France on 25 July 2019 at the age of 110 years, 241 days.
