Her life spans parts of three centuries… Miss Jeralean Talley will hit a milestone last Thursday only a handful in the world ever have experienced: She turned 115.
She was born May 23, 1899, in Montrose, Ga., and moved to Michigan in 1935. Miss Talley bowled until she was 104, went fishing last year, still gets around on her own with the help of a walker.
Her and her husband who passed away in 1988 had one child, Thelma.
Miss Talley lives with Thelma (who is 76 years old).
She celebrated her birthday with friends and family at New Jerusalem Missionary Baptist Church in Inkster on Sunday.
“It’s all in the good Lord’s hands” – Jeralean Talley, who turned 115 years old last week, still attends church when she can…and lives by the motto: Treat others the way you want to be treated.
Experts say only about 1 in 5 million people living in the U.S. become a supercentenarian, a person who lives to be 110 or older.
