Twin sisters Florence Davies and Glenys Thomas, both 103, have died within weeks of each other at their home care center in the United Kingdom.

"It was a huge privilege for all of us at Abermill to care for two such wonderful ladies," said Christine Tipper, Abermill Care Home's deputy manager. "They both made such a positive impact on the life at the home and will be hugely missed by all of us here and by their family and friends."

Thomas passed away on Thursday, April 23, just 27 days before Davies, who died on Wednesday, May 20.

The sisters, who were born on Nov. 22, 1911, had five children, 12 grandchildren and 19 great grandchildren between them.

A spokesman at Abermill Care Home said that Thomas and Davies enjoyed spending time together in the communal lounge area and lived in rooms a couple of doors down from one another.

“They even built an interior door joining their two kitchens to make it even easier for them to see each other," the spokesman added.

Thomas and Davies' deaths came months after celebrating a 103rd birthday party at Abermill with their loved ones, staff and fellow residents.
