Pamela Ann Johnstone née Ralph
1943 – 2013
Pamela was born and raised in Newcastle and was a dispenser for Boots the Chemist.
We were married in Newcastle on 26th November 1966. After the births of our three daughters Pamela retrained and qualified as a nurse.
Following my premature retirement from the police following an injury we moved to London where we lived for 11 years before emigrating to New Zealand where our eldest daughter was living with her husband. Our two other daughters followed with their husbands and in the ensuing 12 years blessed us with nine grandchildren.
Pamela had various posts in her chosen speciality, geriatric nursing, including lead nurse and. Managerial positions. She finally retired at 68 years but shortly after her 69th birthday her cancer took over. She was very stoic and philosophical right to the end.
We all miss her terribly.
