Jeralean Talley, the world’s oldest-known living person, will celebrate her 116th birthday in Detroit next month thanking God for her longevity.

Born on May 23, 1899, Talley climbed to the top of a list kept by the Gerontology Research Group, which validates the ages of the world’s longest-living people, after Gertrude Weaver died at 116 in Arkansas this month.

“Everything comes from above. Everything just comes from above,” Talley told Reuters, surrounded by her family, at her one-storey home in the Detroit suburb of Inkster.

Talley was born in Georgia and moved to Michigan in 1935 with her husband, Alfred Talley, for his job at a Ford plant. He died in 1988.

Sharing apple pies from McDonald’s with the youngest member of her five-generation family, two-year-old Armmell Holloway, Talley said: “I feel just like I feel. I feel good.”
