Secundina Virginia Moyano Ponce was born on 17 May 1904 as the daughter of Jose Moyano and Casimira Ponce. She was the sixth of eight children, of whom only Virginia is still living. She was baptized on 9 July 1904. For the past four years, Virginia has lived since in San Jose Nursing Home with her niece, María Olga Gallo Moyano. Virginia said that the secret to living so long is "remembering beautiful memories that make you laugh". Virginia still remembers the number on her ID card, her birthdate, and her birthplace: "Córdoba capital, barrio General Paz". She also remember that she attended school until 6th grade, and the name of her boyfriend in her youth, Andrés Bergontini, who was a Chilean man from Santiago. He left her to marry another woman with more money. She never married and has no children, but has a large number of nephews and nieces. Her niece says that Virginia still (at 112) eats pies, pizza, eggs and gelatin.
At the end of April 2016, Olga Gallo, her niece, passed away. As a result, Virginia moved to live with her grand-nephews and great-grand-nephews.
Virginia Moyano died on 20 June 2017 in La Rioja, Argentina, at the age of 113 years, 34 days. She is the oldest verified person ever from Argentina.
