LongeviQuest is delighted to announce the age validation of Harriet Coulter of the United States at age 110. She was born in York, Pennsylvania, USA, on 7 March 1876. Mary built a career with the Pennsylvania Railroad, retiring at 65. Devout and unmarried, she taught Sunday school for boys and spent 30 years living simply with her sister.

At 103, a hip fracture led to limited mobility, though she remained sharp and enjoyed TV, especially soap operas. Shortly before her 105th birthday, she said that she had never done anything special that could have contributed to her longevity. When asked if she was looking forward to her 106th birthday, she replied, “Oh no, I really think 105 is old enough.”

Coulter passed away in Philipsburg, Pennsylvania, USA, on 8 July 1986, at the age of 110 years, 123 days. At the time of her passing, she was the second-oldest known living person in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania, behind Florence Knapp.

LongeviQuest congratulates Harriet Coulter’s family on her posthumous recognition.
