INKSTER, MI – A Detroit-area woman believed to be among the oldest people on earth is turning 115.

Jeralean Talley was born May 23, 1899. The Inkster resident went fishing last year and still gets around on her own with the help of a walker.

The Detroit Free Press says Talley plans to celebrate with family and friends at a local church on Sunday.

On her actual birthday — Friday — Talley is going to the doctor for a checkup, although she says she doesn’t “feel sick.”

According to the Gerontology Research Group, which tracks many of the world’s longest-living people, Talley is the oldest American and the second-oldest person in the world.

Her husband died in 1988. Talley is cared for by a 76-year-old daughter who lives with her.
