Rene and Phil are twin sisters who have just celebrated their 100th birthday. All of their lives they have shared the same school, job and all of their birthday celebrations. They are not identical twins, but are exceptionally similar and very close. What is unique about them is that they share each other’s first name as a middle name.
A hundred years old
Rene and Phil are born on November 20, 1916 and Rene is 25 minutes younger from Phil. Nowadays, they live together in Stourport, Worcester. It’s their closeness that made them live together and share everything.
In good shape
They are both in good shape for a pair of a hundred-year-olds, but Irene says’s she can’t walk very far now, but Phyllis continues to walk around the block every day. Irene added that she’s always been the ‘plumper’ of the pair, being a farmer’s wife, she wasn’t thin like Phyllis.
Unfortunately, Phyllis has developed vascular dementia, a disease caused by reduced blood supply to the brain due to diseased blood vessels. So her son Carl and his wife stop by nearly every day.
A Special Birthday Gift
The main thing they wanted for their birthday was donations to the air rescue vehicle. Irene said “We didn’t want presents, we simply wanted donations. We haven’t got all the cash in yet however we think we’ve done quite well, it’s a make close our heart.”
What’s their secret?
Be that as it may, what’s the secret behind their prosperity? How could they figure out how to live to a hundred unscathed by such a variety of things? All things considered, as Irene puts it “Diligent work and great food is our secret, that is whatever I can put it down to.” So there you have it, the correct state of mind and eating have helped them get to be distinctly one of six sets of centenarian twins in the UK.
Longevity is a characteristic of their family because their older sister died in 2006, when she was 92 years old. Also, their husbands lived into their nineties. Rene’s husband passed away in 1999 while Phyllis, died in 2006 at the age of 91. Rene never had children while Phyl has a son, Carl, who visits her every day.
According to him, they get on well despite having some moments from time to time.
Carl points out the difference in characters, despite their closeness. He claims that his aunt Rene is always very careful and methodical while his mother always rushes.
