The official world record can be found here.

The oldest person to tandem parachute jump (female) is Kathryn “Kitty” Hodges (USA, b.9 April 1916) who is 103 years and 129 days old, as verified in Snohomish, Washington, USA, on 15 August 2019.

Kathryn Hodges decided to go skydiving for the first time because her oldest son, Warren Hodges, is an avid tandem skydiver and she wanted to see what fueled his passion for the sport. She was accompanied by her two sons and granddaughter.
