Royle, Pamela Ann

Pamela Ann Royle was born into the Duerr family on 26th September 1934 and she grew into a much sought-after, beautiful woman. She married Gordon Alan Royle in November 1957. Their enduring love for each other and the strength of their relationship ensured her three children; Stephen, Fiona and Susan had a secure and stable family life from which to develop their own family lives. She experienced symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis in her 20ís, but it wasnít until her 40ís that the disease started to impact her life. We remember her talent as an artist and designer and many of her friends will recall the decorations at parties, sports club events or the themed Christmas corner at their first home in Bowdon. Some will have visited Malltraeth where she introduced her husband to sailing. This tradition has passed to her 8 grandchildren who enjoy a variety of water sports and messing about in boats. To treasure their special memories of Anglesey, the family intend to scatter her and Gordonís ashes there in the Spring. She was a keen member of Bowdon Tennis Club and the whole family spent many happy times at that club. As the Multiple Sclerosis deteriorated, she no longer became able to do these activities but she remained outgoing and cheerful. There cannot ever have been a braver and more dignified person in the way she handled her tragic illness over such a long time, and with such good humour. She became affectionately known as Queen Bee by the family as she always remembered what a friendís daughter was doing, which carerís family member was ill or where so and so had been on holiday. To family and friends she became a source of sound advice especially with her unique understanding of people. She always kept up to date with the activities of her 8 grandchildren, and was very proud of all their academic and sporting achievements. They loved to visit, which she always looked forward to and always had exciting plans, trips out or ideas suited to each of them. She became keen on playing bridge, which helped her remain mentally active and keep in touch with her friends. She had many friendships that have lasted decades and the type of friends she made are a true reflection of her character. Her family would like to thank all those who have helped look after her over the years. Firstly to Crossroads, who have been hugely supportive to her and Gordon over many years providing care at home for them. Shortly before Gordonís death, they moved to Sunrise. Although never a substitute for living at home, we would like to thank all those at Sunrise for their care, love and understanding shown to Mum during the last 2 Ĺ years. We would also like to thank all the doctors and nurses, in particular to Dr.Bayliss and her team in Knutsford, for their excellent care and support over many years, Arrangements by Dodgson's Funeral Service, Knutsford
