Biography

Mary Worthington was born on 8 June 1853 in Oldham, England, UK. She never married nor had children.

As with Caroline Beale, four years her senior, Worthington voted in the 1955 UK General Election on 26 May that year. The following year, she was admitted to hospital following an attack of bronchitis and recovered. She remained a patient until her death, by which point she was blind and bedridden.

Worthington became the oldest person in the United Kingdom on 10 November 1959 (upon the death of 106-year-old Edith Grellier), and died on 12 January 1961 in Walsall, England, UK, aged 107 years, 218 days. Jane Stoneman succeeded her as the oldest person in the UK.
