Biography

Czesława Łasiewicz was born in present-day Podlaskie Voivodeship, which was then part of the Russian Empire, now part of Poland, on 14 January 1907. On 30 October 2017, she was recognized as the second-oldest living resident of Poland behind Tekla Juniewicz and the oldest living person in Podlaskie Voivodeship.

With Mrs. Łasiewicz celebrating her 110th birthday on 14 January 2017, a new record of three simultaneously living supercentenarians in Poland was set. The living supercentenarians were  Jadwiga Szubartowicz (aged 111), Tekla Juniewicz (aged 110, later 111) and Czesława Łasiewicz (aged 110). The period ended with Mrs. Szubartowicz passing on 20 July 2017.

On 14 January 2018, Czesława Łasiewicz turned 111 years of age as the first person in the history of Podlaskie Voivodeship to do so. She passed away in Mońki, Mońki County, Podlaskie Voivodeship, Poland, on 29 May 2018 at the age of 111 years and 135 days. She was then the oldest person in Poland never to become the Doyenne.
