Mamie Johnson was a validated American supercentenarian who died in 2016 at the age of 110. At the time of her death, she was the oldest known living person in the U.S. state of Tennessee. Upon her passing, she was succeeded by Louise Short.

Mamie Johnson was born in Nashville, Tennessee, USA, on 13 January 1906. She was a sister, a wife, and a mother to 5 children.

Mamie worked at Standard Candy Co. in Nashville until she was 65. At 101, she moved to the Spring Meadows Health Care Center in Clarksville. She attributed her longevity to walking and her faith (being a member of Woodmont Baptist Church).
