Ardith Grose (born 22 March 1907?) is an American supercentenarian claimant who claims to be the oldest known person living in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania. Her age is currently unvalidated by the Gerontology Research Group (GRG). If her claimed age is validated, she would be the oldest living African-American person.


Ardith Grose claims birth in Pennsylvania, USA, on 22 March 1907. She was the second of 11 children born to Howard and Lena (Myers) Grose. She never married nor had children, and was still living with her mother in 1940. By 2002, she was living in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

By her claimed 106th birthday in 2013, she was living in a nursing home in Norristown, Pennsylvania, where she is described as happy-go-lucky and caring, and enjoys Music, Comedy, and People; she still lives there today at the claimed age of 114 years, 256 days.
