Tomasa Méndez

Tomasa Méndez, seated in the photograph above, is a Spanish supercentenarian whose death was not discovered until more than a year after her 110th birthday, and even by then, an exact date of death could not be determined at that time.
Born on 2 June 1899, she was added to the GRG's pages on 24 July 2009. It was reported by Miguel Quesada, a Spanish GRG correspondent, on 18 June 2010 that she had "died a month or two after her 110th birthday", and Quesada was awaiting her death certificate.
A wait lasting exactly four months ensued, at the end of which Miguel Quesada reported on 18 October 2010 that he had confirmed Méndez as having died on 21 July 2009, thus finishing her life at the age of 110 years, 49 days.
She is the only Spanish person so far to, at one point, satisfy the "limbo" criteria, "Known dead, but death date unknown".
She is the 38th oldest Spanish ever; there have been 42 validated Spanish supercentenarians to date.
