Ruth Mendelson (born 28 March 1910) is an American supercentenarian whose age is currently unvalidated by the Gerontology Research Group (GRG).


Ruth Mendelson was born in New York City, New York State, USA on 28 March 1910. She married in 1932 and moved to Los Angeles five years later. Her son Earl Bender, says longevity runs in their family — Mendelson’s mother and father lived to 101 and 92, respectively, and were married for 76 years, while her younger brother lived to 97 and a cousin until the age of 104.

Because of the coronavirus outbreak, Mendelson’s birthday had to be modified to keep her safe. Mendelson’s family and friends brought signs; orange, pink and yellow tulips; and sang “happy birthday” to her from outside a window. Inside, a portrait of Mendelson was signed by her loved ones, and cupcakes in covered containers were waiting for her.

Mendelson currently lives in Los Angeles, California, USA, at the age of 110 years, 206 days.
