Clara Cedeno [Cedeño] Tello de Saavedra (12 August 1906 – 11 January 2020) was a Panamanian supercentenarian whose age is validated by the Gerontology Research Group. She became the oldest living person in Panama on 6 June 2017, following the death of 113-year-old Bienvenida Vergara Jaen de Cano. She is also the oldest person ever from Panama.
Clara Cedeno Tello was born on 12 August 1906 and was baptized on 10 September 1906, the daughter of Tomas Cedeno and Manuela Salvadora Tello. She had two older siblings: Miguel Cedeno and Saturnina Cedeno.

Cedeno Tello married Elias Saavedra, but never had any children. Her age is validated by the Gerontology Research Group (GRG) on 10 September 2018, making her the second validated supercentenarian from Panama. At that time, she was able to walk with a walker.

In September 2019, at the age of 113, she was recognized as oldest voter of Panama, who had voted uninterruptedly in all the elections and consultations from 1994 to 2019. On 13 October 2019, she surpassed the age of Bienvenida Vergara Jaen de Cano (1904–2017), becoming the oldest validated person who ever lived in Panama.

Cedeno Tello died in Chitre, Herrera Province, Panama on 11 January 2020 at the age of 113 years, 152 days.
