Emma Faust Tillman



I’m sure that some of you have seen or heard the news about the oldest living person, Mrs. Emma Faust Tillman. She was born a plantation near Gibsonville, NC as the daughter of former slaves. She lived to be 114 years old. She held on to her title for only a week. She died quietly on Sunday night at a nursing home in Hartford, Connecticut. It’s time to rest, now. It’s time to go home.
