Marie Marthe Augustine Lemaitre Brémont
née Mesange
25 April 1886 – 6 June 2001

Marie Brémont was a French supercentenarian and the oldest recognized person in the world from November 2000 until her death. Brémont was the second Frenchwoman to hold the title, after longevity world record holder Jeanne Calment.

She was born as Marie Marthe Augustine Mesange in Noëllet, and her first husband, railroad worker Constant Lemaitre, was killed in the First World War. She married again to a taxi driver, Florentin Brémont, who died in 1967.

Over the course of her life, she worked in a pharmaceutical factory, as a nanny and as a seamstress. At 103, she was hit by a car and broke her arm.

She died at her retirement home at age 115 years 42 days in Candé, Maine-et-Loire, having had no children, and was the last documented surviving person born in 1886.
