*Video Added* World's Oldest Person Turns 116 in Michigan * Update

May 23, 2015

By Emily Shapiro
Good Morning America

The world's oldest person, Jeralean Talley, turned 116 today in Inkster, Michigan.

Talley -- who was born in 1899 -- was named the oldest living person in the world last month, according to ABC affiliate WXYZ-TV in Detroit.

Talley's birthday celebrations began earlier this week when she was honored at the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, the Detroit Free Press reported. She also received a special birthday message from President Obama, according to the newspaper.

The parties continue this weekend, according to the Free Press, "Talley had a celebration planned today in Inkster and another one Sunday at her church."

So what is Talley's secret to a very long and healthy life? Last month, she told WXYZ-TV she drinks coffee every day with sugar and no cream.

On her 115th birthday, she told WXYZ-TV she thanks God for her health.

"A long time ago, I asked the good Lord, when you get ready to take me home. ... I don't want to be sick," Talley said. "So far I don't suffer so much."

LOL Well she doesn't look very happy about being 116
Crossed arms aside, couldn't she at least smile for the camera?

Re: World's Oldest Person Turns 116 in Michigan

can you imagine being born in 1899 and seeing how technology has transformed since then? Im amazed how it has changed since 1983 when i was born. Hell kids these days dont know what the world was like without cell phones and text messaging and internet. She probably grew up without electricity and running water.For a fact horses were still the only form of transportation besides a steam driven train or your own feet. No cars back then for sure. She was 14 when the titanic sank. holy shit

Her hat looks like a baby bonnet.

There is video. Our news showed it. I have to find one I can steal.

The older I get, the more my parents and grandparents made sense.

I would be grumpy too if I was 116 and everyone I knew was dead.

Good point!

When I can no longer take care of myself, I don't want to depend on anyone.

Re: *Video Added* World's Oldest Person Turns 116 in Michigan

I wonder what her quality of life is like, though. She must be fully dependant on care and unable to meet any of her activities of daily living independently. She also must be on significant amounts of medication to keep her going. As an ex registered nurse I am of course not saying she should be allowed to die, but it's only due to modern science/medicine that she's still around in the 21st Century. My house was built in 1899 - And that needs maintenance and repair to be still around. Good on her!!
