Hendrikje (a.k.a. Henny/Hennie) van Andel-Schipper was a Dutch supercentenarian who reached the age of 115 years, 62 days. As of 2022, more than 15 years after her death, she still remains the oldest person ever from the Netherlands. At the time of her death, she was the oldest living person in Europe and was also thought to be the world's oldest living person until the age of Maria Capovilla of Ecuador was validated about three months after her death.
