Though only a small territory that belongs to Denmark, I believe a separate topic can't do any harm.

Kala Jensen, the oldest living person from the Faroe Islands, passed away on 1 February 2022 at the age of 106 years, 151 days. She is the oldest known woman to die on the Faroe Islands. According to Gerontology Wiki the new oldest living person in an anonymous woman from Tórshavn, born May/Jun 1918. I believe I identified this woman.

 

Silvia H. Berg of Peturstrøð, Tórshavn, was alive in November 2021 at the age of 103. Her younger brother, Aksel Jacobsen of Ellisheiminum, was still alive at the age of 98. In November they also met with Mathilda Jacobsen of Tjarnargarði who was 100 years old at the time (born 14 December 1920).

Sylvia Berg was born on 16 June 1918. She is most likely the new doyenne.

 

100th birthday 16 June 2018 (Google translate can't translate this language lol):

"Stuttligt at uppliva, at fleiri og fleiri gerast 100 ár og hava tað gott. Sylvia gramdi seg bara um, at hon hevði so ring knø og tað kundi eg ugga hana við, at eg eisini hevði, hóast tað eru nøkur ár ímillum okkum báðar 🙂
Eitt lítið brot úr røðuni til Sylviu Berg :
" Sylvia, tygum hava verið sera virkin øll árini og eru tað enn. Hóast høga aldurin búgva tygum enn heima og gera døgurða og vaska upp hvønn dag, tað er serstakt og tygum eru ein stór fyrimynd fyri okkum onnur.
Eg havi ómetaliga stóra virðing fyri tí stóra arbeiði, sum tygum og føroyskar møður hava útint, meðan menninir vóru í arbeiði og fingu til føðina. Sagt verður, at arbeiðið hjá einari mammu var ósjónligt, tá tað varð gjørt, meðan øll løgdu til merkis, um mamman ikki gjørdi sítt arbeiði.
Hesi konubrot standa oftast í skugganum av monnunum, og teirra ævisøgur verða sjáldan fortaldar. Men Sylvia, tykkara verk hevur lagt lunnar undir menningina av okkara samfelagi. Og tað vilja vit siga stóra takk fyri.""

The Doyenne of Faroe Islands should be Ms. Sylvia Berg (born 16 June 1918, 103).
Ms. Berg currently lives in Peturstrød, Torshavn, Faroe Islands.
She became the oldest living person from the Faroe Islands, following the death of Ms. Kala Jensen (106 y.o.) on 1 February 2022.
At 103:

 
The Doyen of Faroe Islands should be an Anonymous man living in Vágur (born July 1918, 103).
