Oldest Brussels resident celebrates her 110 birthday

Elisabeth De Proost celebrated her 110th birthday on Tuesday. She is the oldest resident of Brussels.

De Proost lives in the Ten Prins rest home in Anderlecht. Anderlecht mayor Eric Thomas and Monique Cassart, the city councillor in charge of civil registration attended Elisabeth De Proost at her birthday party on Tuesday.

De Proost, born in 1908, is still in good health, according to her daughter. She worked as an accountant for many years and lived on her own until she was 106 – in a second floor flat without a lift.

According to Ten Prins director Marc Van Houtvin, she adapted very well to the transition to the rest home and has made many friends there. “When I see her, I have a hard time believing that she’s 110,” he said.
