I've researched this case and it appears that she was a few months older than claimed. Gladys Barbara Smith was born as Catherine Champ on March 16, 1912 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the daughter of Hugh W. "Hughie" Champ and Katie McQuay, per her birth record, and was thus aged 110 years, 242 days when she died.

Rest in peace, Mrs Smith.

 

@sailor-haumea, just how exactly did 'Catherine' become 'Gladys Barbara'?

Overduidelijk misschien.

Her family tree on Ancestry suggests that Okiku's research is correct.
