Ida Troupe on her claimed 117th birthday
25 December 1900?
3 March 2018
117 years, 69 days?
Ida Troupe (25 December 1900? – 3 March 2018) was a Jamaican supercentenarian claimant to 117.
Troupe was allegedly born on Christmas Day in 1900. During her life, she worked as a fish vendor. She was among the first group of people to move into the 1963 housing development in Tivoli Gardens, Jamaica. She resided in the community until her death on 3 March 2018.
Troupe first gained public attention on her claimed 117th birthday in December 2017, when she was visited by Member of Parliament Desmond McKenzie. If her age were validated, she would have been the world's second-oldest living person behind Nabi Tajima.
