Jeralean Talley has probably seen a lot in her lifetime, and the stories she could tell would have a person listening for days. At 115 years old, Talley, of Inkster, Mich., is now the world’s oldest living person, after the death of 116-year-old Gertrude Weaver.

Talley was born on May 23, 1899, in Montrose, Ga., but has been living in the Michigan area since 1935.
