Four sisters from South Dakota, USA have been awarded the Guinness World Records for the highest combined age of four living siblings – 389 years 197 days. The world record was directed by the quartet Arlowene Overskei, Marcene Scully, Doris Gaudineer, Jewell Beck, confirmed the GWR.

The previous registration was 383 years, 147 days, and on August 1 this year, the four sisters broke the record.

Arlowene Johnson Overskei, born October 6, 1921, lives in St Paul. Born May 6, 1923, Minn Marcene Johnson Scully resides in Sioux Falls. Doris Johnson Gaudineer, born April 14, 1926, resides in Arroyo Grande, California. The fourth sister, Jewell Johnson Beck, born May 26, 1929, lives in San Diego, Calif., according to Madisondaily.

They were born to Harry Johnson, a postman and Della. Born in Rutland, all four sisters are recognized as Johnson Singing Sisters.

“We used to love to sing together, but now I sing ‘I Love You Truly’ to my sisters on the phone because we haven’t been together for several years. And it’s a great opportunity to celebrate our long lives,” said the one of them, quoted by GWR.

Asked about the inspiration for attempting the world record, Gaudineer was quoted as saying by Madisondaily, “We’re still alive, and that’s something to celebrate.” “It’s a way to celebrate the long-standing relationships with my sisters. I love that we discover things as we reminisce about our years together,” Scully said.

Although separated by distance, the sisters stayed in touch for eight decades and visited each other. Now the sisters stay connected by phone.

Recounting memories of their reunion, Lori Wilbur, Scully’s daughter, told the Madisondaily, “There were a lot of weeks during the summer when we were all together,” Wilbur recalled. “It was all songs and games. We would make fires by the lake for summer meetings.
