INKSTER, MI (WDIV/NBC) -

Michigan resident Jerelean Talley celebrated her 116th birthday on Saturday.

She was born May 23, 1899.

If you search her name in Google, it comes up at the top of the list of super-centenarians.

Jerelean says she feels okay for 116.

She's very sharp and very active for her age.

Just how old is 116? Well, Jerelean was 4 years old when the Wright Brothers took their first flight and when Ford Motor Company first began.

Happy birthday Jerelean!
