Christina Cetoute is today, Tuesday, June 9 celebrating her 112th birthday.

Cetoute, believed to be St. Lucia’s oldest living resident, had two children. They are now deceased. She however has numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Cetoute, who was a farmer for decades and from the community of Morne d’Or in the Roseau Valley, is bedridden and has hearing difficulties, but she is reportedly otherwise in good health.

A distant relative told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) last week that he would like more government support for his great grandmother.

He credits Cetoute’s longevity on eating natural, non-processed food.

  14. Respect 2 elders

    The government of St. Lucia should honor her by making a memoir in her name. No one in Lucia knows Lucia like she does, I am sure she has seen it all. The government should ensure all her needs are met regardless of what support her remaining family can do for her,she is a living legend. 112 years young? God bless you sweetheart, I wish you were my granny!!!

  15. Wow, Happy Birthday is enough. When her age was verified in December 2012, she had just turned 109 in June of that year. The family decided to celebrate her milestone and called up a meeting among themselves. The family and friends in the community of Morne D’Or came together and chipped in and made it a success. The media (HTS and DBS) was present. The Ministry responsible for this sort of thing was contacted and they said that only when the individual reaches 100 years will they get involved to help celebrate, any thing after that they are on their own. It was really sad to know that we have the oldest living person right here in St. Lucia and Government officials would not even recognize her. She has now made it to 112 thank God. She is doing just fine with family and friends.

    • If what you wrote is true it’s a damn shame. I’m familiar with the program from it’s very beginning. It started in the 1980s and meant to recognize senior citizens upon attainment of age 100 years and over. All such persons deserve the recognition and a monthly public assistance from the government. I don’t know if the focus was changed but it will be very foolish to change such a good program.

  16. Happy Birthday to you. May God continue to bless you. Have a great one.
