Maria Eriksson (née Karlsson; 27 March 1900 – 10 January 2011) was a Swedish verified supercentenarian. She was born in Sigtuna as Maria Emilia Karlsson. When she was 32 years old, she married Axel Eriksson. The couple never had any children together. Maria became a widow in 1970. Reportedly, being a supercentenarian didn't mean that much to her. As she explained, seeing all her old friends die made her feel lonely and she preferred it when she was young, healthy and working.

She attributed her longevity to good genetics in her family. Maria Eriksson died on 10 January 2011, at the age of 110 years, 288 days.
