LongeviQuest is delighted to announce the age validation of Dicie Catherine Dodson of the United States at age 110. She was born in Tunnelton, West Virginia, United States on 23 July 1875. She was a sister to 4 siblings, a wife, and a mother to 8 children. The Dodson family lived on a farm in Oregon from 1900 to 1906. They then resided in Canada and built their house in 1918.

In 1951, Dodson moved from Canada to Prineville, Oregon, USA. She lived there until the early 1980s, when she moved to Salem to live with her daughter-in-law. She was a member of Prineville Community Church.

In July 1985, she celebrated her 110th birthday, becoming the first supercentenarian in the U.S. state of Oregon. She held the record as the state’s longevity record holder until her final age was surpassed by Nina Rust (1881–1993) on 25 July 1991. Dodson is also the earliest recorded supercentenarian born in the state of West Virginia.

Dodson passed away in Salem, Oregon, USA, on 28 August 1985, at the age of 110 years, 36 days.

LongeviQuest congratulates Dicie Catherine Dodson’s family on her posthumous recognition.
