LongeviQuest is pleased to announce the age validation of Fannie Barney of the United States at age 110. She was born in South Pass, Wyoming, United States on 29 July 1873. Barney’s parents were born in South Holland, Netherlands, and immigrated to the United States in 1868, bringing along their five children. The family’s original surname was Duijndam, but it was later changed to Dundom upon settling in the USA. Barney attended schools in Washington and Montana.
On 25 December 1890, Barney got married in Fergus County, Montana. She was a homemaker, and the family moved around frequently, eventually settling in California for 50 years. At 103, she moved to Grand Junction, Colorado, to be with her daughter. Barney was a member of Jehovah’s Witnesses.
Barney passed away at Beverly Manor Nursing Home in Grand Junction, Colorado, USA, on 4 August 1983, at the age of 110 years, 6 days. She was survived by her daughter Frances, five grandchildren, 13 great-grandchildren, and nine great-great-grandchildren.
At the time of her death, Barney was the second-oldest living person in the U.S. state of Colorado, following Linnie Jones, who is believed to be the first supercentenarian in the state, making Barney the second.
LongeviQuest congratulates Fannie Barney’s family on her posthumous recognition.
