In loving memory of Pamela Gregory who sadly passed away on 20th February 2020
Pamela Vera Gregory was born to Sid and Eleanor Clee in Poole on the 20th of January 1930 where she grew up with her sister Jean on South Road. Pam started work at 14 in the Co-Op and worked most of her life in shops and in cleaning roles. Pam married Donald Gregory in Poole on 31st of March 1956 after meeting through ballroom dancing for which they won medals for their performances and were renowned for their routines.
Pam and Don spent 49 years married until Don passed away living in Poole and Wimborne throughout that time and Pam continued to live on her own until April 2018 when she moved to sheltered accommodation in Maidment Court in Poole where she was very happy.
Pam had a heart attack at the age of 54 with her heart stopping in the ambulance on the way to the hospital. Fortunately she was saved by the paramedics using a new technology called an AED, which was not fitted on every ambulance at the time. However Pam was tough, having had 2 open heart surgeries, including one as recently as 2013. She never gave up, she loved life and loved her family more than anything - Pam had two children, 5 grandchildren and one great grandchild all of whom loved her back equally.
Throughout Pam’s life she made many friends and loved going out for a coffee and a chat with them. One of her many good qualities was that she always said thank you. That might not seem like much but whenever anybody called her, helped her or went to see her she would always smile and say, thank you. As one of her grandchildren said – if you smile then you live longer and Pam smiled a lot and brought many smiles to those who knew her.
Family flowers only please.
