Separate topic for semi-supercentenarians and supercentenarians from Serbia. Not a lot of Serbian centenarians were located due to lack of online articles, so for now we can post women aged 107+, and men aged 106+.

Jovo Latinović (19 Aug 1902 - <18 Apr 2011) of Belgrade.

Born in the village of Kolunić near Bosanski Petrovac, present-day Bosnia and Herzegovina. He retired in 1957 after working on railways in Serbia. He moved to Belgrade in 1995, where he lived with his daughter, granddaughter and great-granddaughter. He was known by the nickname "Dovo".

His obituary mentions how he was born in 1901, but the report from 2007 mentions how he turned 104 on 19 August 2006.

He passed away at the age of 108 years, <242 days, making him the oldest known man to die in Serbia, though not the oldest known ethnic Serb (Dragoljub Galić and Jovan Jovanović were older).

Mention

Mention about burial on 18 April 2011

The date of death is most likely 16 April 2011 (Funeral held on April)

Only one report says that he was born in 1902, and other reports say that he was born in 1901, also his monument in the cemetery says that he was born in 1901.

One of the oldest living men in Serbia, Mašo Bronja from the village Žitniće, Zlatibor District, passed away on 3 February 2022, at the age of 104.

He was born around December 1917. During his life, he underwent three "dangerous" surgeries, but he was still in good health as a centenarian. Even though he had at least 8 children, in his later-life he married a woman 40 years younger than him. He was a Muslim, and even at the age of 101 he used to go to the mosque, and was able to walk to the nearby village of Duga Poljana about 2 kilometers away.

Currently, the only known living man in Serbia older than Mašo Bronja is Živan Popović, born 30 January 1917.

It seems as an anonymous woman of 110 years old has been found by @dejan. I'm not sure about the authenticity of this case but she seems somewhat plausible.

@rich_villa Anonymous woman Born 1909 is probably a fake case, (She writes that she is the oldest pensioner in Serbia). She never appeared in public, because not all because she increased her age...

Magnified claims of centenarians and supercentenarians from Serbia.

• Separately and stated the reasons why their years were increased.

1) Increased years due to retirement:

• Slava Ivančević (10 July 1909 - 23 Sept 2013), 104 years, 106 days.

- Increased by 15 years due to pension, (increased to 1894 and 119 years).

• Lena Ljubić (24 May 1901 - 3 Feb 2005), 103 years, 255 days.

- Increased by 10 years due to pension (Increased to 1891 and 113 years, the family honestly admitted).

2) Increased due to media attention (to no avail because they did not have any documents with the required date of birth).

• Djurdja Stojković (20 Oct 1913 - present), 108 years ...

- Increased due to media attention and to draw attention to the conditions in which her family lives and out of ignorance.

• Kalina Danilović (16 Apr 1918 - 30 Oct 2013), 95 years, 197 days.

- Increased due to media attention and ignorance. (Increased to 1900 and 113), useless and there is no document she used with the date of birth 1900).

• Najča Turić (15 June 1915 - 21 Jan 2008), 94 years ...

- Increased due to media attention and ignorance. (Increased for 16 years to 1899)...

3) Magnified by the media, for no reason.

• Ružica Zeković (10 May 1903 - 3 Oct 2008) 105 years, 146 days.

- Enlarged by the media to 1897 and 111 years.

• Pauna Damnjanović, (23 Mar 1898 - 5 Nov 2002), 104 years, 227 days.

- Magnified by the media after her death at 1892 and 110 years.

These are cases that can be considered debunked...

Very sad news, currently the third oldest person in Serbia, Ilona Kovac died suddenly on 6 June at the age of 107 years and 234 days. She was the oldest ethnic Hungarian in Serbia. (Another example of how physical appearance and vitality are not crucial, I hoped it would reach at least 110, but unfortunately it did not work)...

Rest in peace.

Update: add Rade Grujičić (1900-2007)

Photo, Grujicic (aged 101) in May 2001 in front of his dilapidated log house.

Rade Grujicic [Serbian; Раде Грујичић] (15 February 1900 - 4 December 2007) was a Serbian centenarian born in Montenegro who, at the time of his death, was the oldest known living man and person in Serbia. He was also a famous herbalist from the mountains of Jabuka.

Biography

Grujicic was born in the village of Otlovici near Pljevlja, Kingdom of Montenegro, present-day Montenegro on 15 February 1900.

He was looking for medicinal plants, which is why he came to the territory of today's Serbia. He was known for helping people all over Yugoslavia who could not have children with his herbs. He has helped hundreds of people realize themselves as parents. He always said that it was a gift from God to help others. He never went to the doctor in his life, until he was 102 years old.

In March 2002, when he was 102 years old at the Institute for Cardiovascular Diseases, he had a bypass implanted, then he endured the operation very well and after that he returned to the village and continued collecting medicinal herbs.

Grujicic died in a small village of Golocevina on Jabuka Mountain, Prijepolje municipality, Serbia on 4 December 2007, at the age of 107 years, 292 days. Following his death, then 106-year-old Jovo Latinovic became the oldest known living man in Serbia, and then 107-year-old Kostadinka Momirovic became the oldest known living person in Serbia.

Živan Popović oldest known living man in Serbia since 20 June 2022. New video and photos.

He currently lives alone and doesn't see people for a few days because there are very few people in his village.

He is visited by a taxi driver once a week who brings him groceries and the postman visits him once a month.

He draws water for bathing from the Well and heats it in the sun, because there are still mountain villages that do not have a water network. He said that faith in God was one of the key factors in his longevity.

Right now, loneliness is hitting him the hardest.

Video on 27 July 2022 at the age of 105.

Djurdja Stojković, the oldest known living (claim) in Serbia since the death of 110-year-old Tamara Krutikov on 6 July 2022, today on 20 Octobet, turns 109 years.

(This is the latest photo, taken this morning on 20 October 2022).

She lives in difficult conditions without basic means of living, and so far with the help of the Humanitarian Foundation "Tamara Misirlić" from Vranje, more than 2 thousand euros have been collected to help her family, while on the other hand, the local authorities claim that her son used this case to get as much help as possible from humane people. The Tamara Misirlić foundation stated how and how much help has been given to the Stojković family so far, but it is obvious that her son has not done anything for the well-being of his mother, and he asked for help and stated that his wife is allegedly no longer capable of work and said he needed two home care...

How did you figure out she was born in 1913? She claims to be born in 1908, as far as I know.

@mendocino Depending on when, sometimes he claims 1908, sometimes 1913. based on newspaper articles, it is officially 20.10.1913. Also the birth certificate for her children confirms a birth date of 1913 (only one birth certificate for her second son from 1945 confirms a birth date of 1908, which her younger son Miroslav used to attract more media attention). Also the 1931 census confirms that she was 17 at the time, while her oldest living daughter was born towards the end of 1929....

Source: Deset report of Tamara Krutikov, https://informer.rs/amp/vesti/drustvo/718136/najstarija-zena-srbiji-tamara-krutikov

However, the president of Serbia, Aleksandar Vučić, does not confirm the case of Djurdja Stojković as the oldest living person in Serbia. Vučić declared Nadežda Pavlović as the oldest living person in Serbia (publicly), while Tamara Krutikov was declared Anonymous because her family does not belong to the political party led by Vučić. As for Djurdja Stojković, Vučić said to my question that he will wait for the first preliminary results of the census that is currently underway, and after that it will be known who is Tamara Krutikov's successor. (It is quite possible that there is someone older than Milka Bauković and Djurdja Stojković). The population census lasts until the end of October, while the first preliminary results will be known at the end of November 2022, official data in April 2023...

@dejan if she is listed as 17 in 1931, then she can be verified with a lower degree of certainty if she reaches 110.

@930310 Including her health, the chances of her reaching 110 are very minimal, I would say almost non-existent, but you never know. The population census in itself is not sufficient evidence, nor is it reliable, because even then the information was entered on the basis of statements. According to her son Miroslav, she received her first identity card only at the beginning of 2021 in order to acquire the right to social insurance, until then she did not have an identity card or a health card. In some birth records of her younger children from the 1950s and early 1960s, it is stated that she was born in 1928, (mostly in 1913), only one extract from 1945 says 1908, so the 1921 census would be of crucial importance. Whether I will be able to get that data in the future I am not sure, but in case she reaches 110 I will try to get those records from the stat office (with her son's consent)... The 1911 census is also important, if not available on that census, any claim that she was born in 1908 goes to ruin, but again I say that the census from 1921 could provide a contribution while according to the census from the beginning of 1931 she was 17 years old. In any case, she is probably the last case from Serbia for which it is not possible to determine the exact age, therefore she is the last and will probably pass that way and remain among the OLP of Serbia on the Chronological list, (she will be just a small gap between Tamara Krutikov and Milka Bauković), According to me Milka Bauković is in the opinion of the candidate who will receive the title "OLP" of Serbia in some future period (probably soon). Milka Bauković if her health stays like this and if she stays active, has a great chance of becoming the oldest person ever from Croatia and Serbia...
