( 4UMF NEWS ) Worlds Oldest Person Dies:

The family of Jeralean Talley, the World's Oldest Person, says the 116-year-old died at her home in Inkster, Michigan, Wednesday night.

Her family confirmed with FOX 2 that Talley died in her sleep at her home in Inkster.

Talley was certified in April as the World's Oldest Person and in May, she celebrated her 116th birthday. She told us in April that she eats what she wanted, loved her family, and credits God, who calls the shots.

Known as Mother Talley, she rolled out in a limousine on May 23rd, her 116th birthday.

When she was named the World's Oldest Person in May, her family said she didn't believe in diets and would often reach for junk food and drink pop.

Also while our crew was there, she gave this advice:

"The best advice I can give you," she said. "If I do not want you to tell a lie about me, I won't tell a lie about you. Treat your fellow man, I don't care what color, treat your fellow man like you would want to be treated. Like you want to be treated, you treat him that way. Treat him like you want to be treated."
