That photo above is the face of a woman whose seen a lot in her life time. And at 115-years-young, Jeralean Talley of Inkster, Michigan is basking in her life right now and gives all her credit to god.

Talley was born on May 23, 1899, in Montrose, Ga. and has been a Michigan resident since 1935. She credits one person to her long life.

“It’s coming from above,” she said. “That’s the best advice I can give you. It’s not in my hands or your hands,” Talley told CBS Detroit. 

Talley is said to still have a sharp mind and even goes on an annual fishing trip with her family. But she does have some sage words of advice.

“Treat the other fellow like you want to be treated. You don’t tell a lie on me, so I won’t tell a lie on you,” she stated.

    This lady certainly won the genetic lottery when it comes to long life. The one thing about living so long is that she has probably most of her children. I know she lives with a 77 year old daughter. She was nearly forty when she had her.

  • Bless Jeralean Talley.

    I peeped that too. I assumed they didn’t know better, but most Christians know better, don’t they?

    Who says clutch Magazine is a religious blog? They never said that. Newsflash: Not everyone believes in god and/or is religious. Sorry not sorry.
