After living together for 103 years and through 19 British Prime Ministers, the oldest twin sisters from Britain have passed away just weeks apart from each other.
Gleyns Thomas and Florence Davies lived next door to each other near Caerphilly, South Wales.
While Thomas died on Thursday, April 23, 2015 Davies died on Wednesday, May 20, 2015 after they both spent their final days in the same care home where they were just a couple of doors away.
The pair who were born on November 22, 1911, the same year as the coronation of King George, lived through two world wars.
The sisters claimed to be the first identical twins to be born in the Aber Valley, according to Wales Online.
The strong bond between the duo made them build an interior door that joined their kitchens at their homes in Abertridwr to make it easier to see each other.
They inherited the title of UK’s oldest after turning 103 last November.
Thomas’ 65-year-old daughter Gwenda Stacey, said, “They have lived a simple life, they never went abroad, they were always happiest together.
“Their connection was lasting and truly life long.”
Thomas was a mother of one, grandmother to three, a great grandmother to nine and had one great-great-grandson while Davies had three children, nine grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren.
The duo whose husbands are both dead worked as cleaners before becoming housewives and both suffered from dementia.
Thomas has been buried with her husband, while Davies will be laid to rest with her mother and father.
