Biography

Not much about her life in middle age is known about Mrs. van der Burg-Leusveld, besides that she married and got six children, of whom she all survived. She moved to retirement home 'Uitzicht' in the capital of Amsterdam at the age of 104, after her last remaining son died two weeks earlier. At the same age, Mrs. van der Burg-Leusveld set another record besides being the oldest living resident in The Netherlands; she underwent an surgery of an ileus (a disruption of the normal propulsive ability of the gastrointestinal tract) successfully.

Elisabeth van der Burg-Leusveld passed away on 16 Janary 1973 at the age of 108 years, 297 years. Following her death, Johanna Leeuwenburg-Hordijk became the oldest living person in The Netherlands.
