PAMELA Rees was el­e­gant, kind and calm and the first Miss Dym­church af­ter the Sec­ond World War. Pamela, who worked as switch­board op­er­a­tor at the old post of­fice and as a Ju­rat to the Lords of the Level, died on Fri­day, Fe­bru­ary 23. She was 76 when she died in her sleep at the William Har­vey Hospi­tal. She had been a pa­tient there since a heart at­tack fol­low­ing a mi­nor op­er­a­tion last Oc­to­ber. Her hus­band John, a reader emer­i­tus of the parish, who she mar­ried 16 years ago, said: “Pam was a very spe­cial per­son. “The fact that she was a real Dym­church per­son made life eas­ier for me when deal­ing with be­reave­ments and wed­dings, as she knew who was re­lated to who in the vil­lage, sav­ing any em­bar­rass­ments. “Pam loved gar­den­ing and her favourite hobby, at which she ex­celled, was draw­ing and paint­ing in all medi­ums and many of our pic­tures are Pam’s.” Brenda Apps, an­other for­mer Miss Dym­church, said: “We’d all get pret­tied up for the Satur­day night dances in the Bow­ery hall and the an­nual com­pe­ti­tion. “Pam was a lovely per­son, she ex­uded calm, had a won­der­ful sense of hu­mour and would al­ways help oth­ers. We will miss her.” Mrs Rees worked in ex­port de­part­ments of Sil­ver City at Lydd Air­port and Bri­tish Cale­do­nian Air­ways at Gatwick Air­port and an ex­port su­per­vi­sor for LEP Trans­port in Dover. Her funeral will be held to­mor­row (Fri­day) at 11am in St Peter and St Paul’s Church.
