“I thank God for that, I’m still alive,” Weaver told to the media. Weaver was born July 4, 1898, in Texarkana, Ark. She expected to have a special invited at her birthday party this year, the President Obama. Weaver married in 1915 and was a homemaker and domestic worker, living for a time in California before returning to Arkansas in the 1970s. His husband died in 1969. Even her last surviving son, Joe, turns 94 on Tuesday. After Weaver’s death, another person is believed now as the world’s oldest person: 115-year-old Jeralean Talley, who lives with her 77-year-old daughter, Thelma Holloway, in Inkster, Mich., a suburb of Detroit.
