A GRIEVING couple have paid tribute to their 28-year-old daughter, who died in her sleep.
Pamela Jane Parry, of Greenfield, “lived life to the full”, parents Judith and Dennis Parry told the Leader.
Her mother was unable to wake her from her bed on Wednesday morning. Despite the best efforts of paramedics, they were told Miss Parry had died.
“Everyone’s been in tears,” said Mrs Parry. “Everyone loved her.”
Miss Parry, who was born with muscular dystrophy and learning disabilities, had led a “brilliant” life according to her father who said she “lived her life to the full”.
The couple said their daughter, whose photographs adorn the walls in the family’s living room, had always enjoyed going to school and college and continued to live a busy life after leaving education.
“She was very happy and she would talk to anyone,” said Mrs Parry. “I’m a bit shy but she would just start up a conversation. She was full of life.”
Miss Parry, who loved Ant and Dec and John Travolta, was pictured on the front page of the Leader as a primary school student when she was met former Prime Minister Tony Blair at County Hall in Flintshire.
The couple fondly recalled their daughter going on a trip to Lourdes in France.
Mrs Parry said: “When she came back we couldn’t stop her talking about it – the airport, everything. She had to tell everybody. She did more than we ever did.”
After leaving college, Miss Parry enjoyed attending the Clock Tower in Mostyn and Glanrafon two days a week.
She would also often go out with a carer in the evening.
Miss Parry was a keen fan of musicals, including Grease and Mamma Mia!
Her parents said Miss Parry was “music mad”, loving all kinds of music and enjoying going to the Liverpool Philharmonic for concerts.
The couple said family, friends and neighbours were “shocked and upset” at news of the sudden death, but had been hugely supportive.
