Daisey Bailey (née Flowers; March 30, 1896 – March 7, 2010) was an African-American supercentenarian, who at the age of 113 years and 342 days, was the fourth oldest person in the world and the third oldest living person in the United States. Coincidentally, Mary Josephine Ray, who had held the title of being the oldest living person in the United States and second oldest in the world, died just a few hours before Bailey.
Bailey was born in Wilson County, Tennessee in 1896. She had four children (all deceased). She moved into 25-year-old Helen Walker's residence in 1953 to help raise her young children. In the 1990s, Bailey moved in with her 73-year-old granddaughter Helen Arnold, and lived in Detroit, Michigan, till her death. She credited her longevity to always praying, loving, forgiving, and eating vegetables.
