She was a famous artist, painter and writer. Her age was once a mystery (with guesstimates of her birth anywhere from 1886 to 1895) but eventually the evidence was located to show that she was, in fact, born in 1890. The documents for validation can be found online here:
Theresa Bernstein-Meyerowitz migrated to the United States in the early 1890s. She studied at the Philadelphia School of Design for Women, now Moore College of Art & Design. She graduated in 1911 with an award for general achievement and later studied at the Art Students League in New York City. In 1912, she settled in Manhattan. In 1919, she married William Meyerowitz. The couple were married for 62 years. Bernstein was a member of the National Association of Women Artists, New York Society of Women Artists and the North Shore Art Association. Her works were exhibited extensively with the National Academy of Design and the Society of Independent Artists and have gradually made their way into important museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Philips Collection, and the Smithsonian Museum of American Art, among many others.

After graduating from high school, she worked as a licensed practical nurse in Asheville, where she was to live for most of her life. In 1928, she married Charles Street in Buncombe County, North Carolina. They had no children.
Frances and her husband loved to exercise and enjoyed long walks in the country. Frances also enjoyed looking good and always wore pretty clothes lots of jewelry. She also enjoyed reading but in her own words ''I hate to cook and couldn't cook water.''
In her final years, Frances Street lost both legs due to poor circulation, but maintained good health otherwise. Carers at her nursing home said ''There's just something special about this lady. She is just full of joy and happiness.'' Frances loved to tell humorous stories about her life and would often understate her age when asked. She enjoyed an evening cocktail of gin and tonic. Frances Street died on August 24, 2010 at the age of 113 years, 149 days. At the time of her death, she was the oldest person ever born in South Carolina, although this record was subsequently broken by Mamie Rearden.

Sina Hayes, 111
Photos from Sina Hayes 110th birthday party:
September 27, 2014; Sina Hayes was born in Iredell County, North Carolina on June 27, 1903. One of 10 children, she married Raleigh Hayes in 1924 and had two sons, Harold and Carlyle. After moving to Winston-Salem when her husband found a new job, Hayes worked at Hanes Knitting Mill in Winston-Salem for more than 30 years, primarily making infant sleepwear. One of her quilts won an award at a local fair. After Raleigh retired in 1966, the couple travelled extensively, visiting every American state except Alaska, as well as several European countries. Sina enjoyed 70 years of happy marriage until Raleigh died in 1994, aged 92. Shortly after his death, Sina moved into Brookridge Retirement Community where she has lived ever since.
Now a great-great grandmother, Hayes puts her longevity down to "exhibiting a "Pollyanna" attitude and keeping happy thoughts on the mind." Faith has been the bedrock of her life. She has been a member of Northwest Baptist Church for 75 years, and spent several decades serving in Sunday school and with the Women's Missionary Union. "She's been a living example of a Godly woman her whole long life," her son Carlyle Hayes said.
