Geneva McDaniel (née O'Kelley; 26 August 1887 – 6 April 1999) was an American supercentenarian whose age is validated.


Geneva McDaniel was born in Georgia, USA on 26 August 1887. She married Mack T. McDaniel and was widowed in 1957.

McDaniel was an avid fan of exercise, drove a race car at 105 years, appeared on David Letterman's show in 1990 (at 103), and was teaching an aerobics class at age 108. From 1987–1999 she appeared in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution 27 times. She had a mentality that said "never say die", "never quit". After age 110, becoming bedridden was just another obstacle for her to overcome.

McDaniel died in Duluth, Gwinnett County, Georgia, USA on 6 April 1999 at age 111 years, 223 days and was a member of the Georgia Centenarian Study Group.
