Pauline Raissle [German: Raißle] (born 16 December 1905) is a German supercentenarian who, at the age of 111 years, 248 days, is currently the third oldest living person in Germany. She is presently unverified.
Raissle was born as the eighth of eleven siblings in Tumlingen on 16 December 1905. She started working as an ancilla when she was 8 years old. In the late 1920s, she moved to Riederich. Initially, Raissle was not interested in getting married, but she met a man and the marriage took place in 1932. The couple had five daughters who were all alive at the time Raissle turned 110. In 1999, she moved to the nursing home in Metzingen, where she still lives presently. On her 104th birthday, she was reported to be in the need of glasses only for the reading and she was said not to be using denture. Some years later, it was also reported that Raissle took care of other residents by having contact with them, talking about God, and feeding them, if necessary.
She attributes her longevity to God and her steady Christianity.
