113-Year-Old Jersey Girl Named America's Oldest Living Resident

A 113-year-old New Jersey woman has been named America's oldest living resident.

Adele Dunlap was born on December 12, 1902 in Newark, New Jersey. She became the record holder on July 8, the Gerontology Research Group confirmed to ABC News.

Adele is currently 113 years, 7 months and 1 week old.

"She is lovely," said Susan Dempster, activities director of the Country Arch Care Center in Pittstown, where Adele lives. "She's quiet, but will raise her hand when she needs to be heard. She attends church, entertainment and the word games activities. This week, we announced [the record title] at an event. She nodded and everyone clapped for her. It's really sinking in a little bit for her. She's our local celebrity now."
