About to turn “Sweet 116,” the world’s oldest woman had this wisdom to share: Everything comes from above.
In case Reuters didn’t catch her drift the first time around, Jeralean Talley repeated: Everything just comes from above.
Talley, born in 1899, therefore credits God for her longevity. She is extremely grateful for having lived long enough to witness a fellow African American become president.
Talley hasn’t just sat around waiting to become even older than old. She has “maintained an active lifestyle, bowling until she was 104.”
Talley continues to be an active member of the New Jerusalem Missionary Baptist Church in Inkster, Michigan. In fact, “a front row seat is kept for her” there.
She will be going out to dinner with family on her upcoming May 23rd birthday. Then come June, Talley plans to go fishing.
