Mazal tov Phyllis Lader, originally from Glasgow, then London, now Protea Village, on your 100th birthday.. This wonderful occasion was noted by HM The Queen with a special letter – plus an appearance by Phyllis on Israel TV News! Due to corona, all the family couldn't get together, but here are some of the family with Phyllis. Her clan includes 5 children, 23 grandchildren, 95 great grandchildren, 2 great great grandchildren and more on the way! "They are all mine!" said Phyllis as she literally danced from party to party in her honor!
