Biography

Julia Lyng was born on 22 December 1878 in Verdal, Trøndelag, Norway to parents John and Liva (née Carlsdotter) Lyng. The family emigrated to Minnesota in 1884. Julia worked as a maid and housekeeper in her early 20s before returning to help the family with their farm after her father's death. She never married nor had any children, but she had a sister, Laura, who she lived with on the farm until Laura died in 1973. After that she moved into a retirement home in Springfield, Minnesota.

Julia Lyng died on 26 February 1990 aged 111 years, 66 days. Her case was originally verified by Celvin Ruisdael, and a rechecking of her case in 2015 proved that Julia was the age she claimed to be.
