LongeviQuest is delighted to announce the age validation of Dorothy Ziegenfuss of the United States at age 110. She was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, on 10 July 1905. Ziegenfuss started at a small schoolhouse and later landed a job at an insurance company. Though the job itself was short-lived, it led to a long and happy marriage of over 50 years to her husband, with whom she had a son.

Ziegenfuss celebrated her 105th with greetings from President Obama and NBC. At 106, she resided at Garden Spring Center, crediting a nightly glass of wine for her long life.
