Pauline Green was a validated American supercentenarian who died in 2003 at the age of 110. She was among the oldest living people in the state of North Dakota.

Pauline Frances Green, originally born Pauline Frances Warzeha, was born in Waverly, Wright County, Minnesota, United States on 5 June 1893. She began her career in a Minneapolis candy factory after completing her schooling in Waverly.

In 1916, Green moved to Mandan, North Dakota, and secured a job at a telephone company. She got married on January 1918, in Bismarck, the state capital. The couple then had three children. The family resided on a farm north of Mandan.

Green maintained her independence well into her 90s, ceasing to drive at age 94. She later transitioned to an assisted living apartment at 101. Remarkably, she performed a polka dance at age 98 during her son Clifford’s golden wedding anniversary celebration. Three weeks before her 110th birthday, Green broke her hip in a fall.
