America’s oldest living person Jeralean Talley turned 115 years of age. She is helmed as ‘supercentenarian’ by the Gerontology Research Group, which keeps a database of the oldest living people in the world.  Born in 1899, Jeralean Talley is the second oldest person in the world, after Misao Okawa, who turned 116 years of age, in the month of March, 2014.

Jeralean is still independent in mind and spirit and says that she can take care of herself and move around, with a walker by her side.   She lives with her 76 year old daughter in the same house, since the 1960. Talley who has been quite active in her old age as well, gave up bowling only at 104. She told the media, “A long time ago, I asked the good Lord, when you are ready to take me, I don’t want to be sick. So far, I don’t suffer much”
