Back in May, Jeralean celebrated her 116th birthday with friends, family, Inkster’s mayor and Congressman John Conyers, who delivered a special birthday message from President Barack Obama.

Born in 1899 , Talley inherited the title of World’s Oldest Woman after Gertrude Weaver died in April.

When she last spoke with 7 Action News, Talley told us she didn’t really eat butter and didn’t like cream in her coffee – just sugar.

On her 115th birthday  she told 7 Action News she didn’t know what to say to people who want advice on living a long healthy life.
