Following the death of Dina Manfredini, 115, of Iowa on Dec 17, Mamie Rearden, 114, of Edgefield, SC is in line for the “Oldest Living American” title.

Yes, she is already the oldest “African American,” as we reported in August, but now, she is the “Oldest Living American,” period.

She is also the 4th oldest living person on the planet, behind three Japanese aged, 115, 114, and 114.
