Marie-Louise Meilleur (b. August 29, 1880–d. April 16, 1998) was a Canadian supercentenarian. She died at the age of 117 years. After the death of Jeanne Calment she became the oldest validated living person. She was born in Kamouraska, Quebec, where she married her first husband, Étienne Leclerc, in 1900. After he and both of her parents died in 1911 or 1912, Meilleur left two of her four surviving children behind in 1913 and moved to the Ontario border. Only once, in 1939,  she returned to the Quebec area. She had six further children by her second husband, Hector Meilleur, who she married in 1915. After his death in 1972, she lived first with a daughter and then in a nursing home in Corbeil. She had 85 grandchildren, 80 great-grandchildren, 57 great-great-grandchildren and four great-great-great-grandchildren.
