Royalty, Nancy

Mrs. Nancy Kay (Rosen) Royalty, 69, of Murray, died on Friday, August 23 after a struggle with cancer. She is survived by two daughters, Alexis Royalty (Morgan) of Arlington, VA, and Joan Royalty of Murray; three grandchildren, Shyann Royalty (Ocean), Ender Royalty, and Magdalena Royalty-Denk, all of Murray; one sister, Linda Dinwiddie (Leslie) of St. Louis; one brother, Niles Rosen (Mary) of St. Louis; and six beloved nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her spouse, Joel Royalty, and her parents, Seymour Rosen and Chloe Rosen Carter. Nancy retired from Calloway County Middle School in 2012 after devoting more than 40 years of her life to teaching. She believed that every child mattered, every student could succeed, and worked to instill those beliefs into each student entering her classroom. After retiring, Nancy continued to support the community by designing and sewing costumes for the Playhouse in the Park, and especially loved working with the children in the Penguin Project shows. Nancy showed kindness to every person she ever met, opening her heart, her wallet, and even her home to anyone in need. Words cannot express how much she will be missed. Please contact the family for details on the reception celebrating her life. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Anna Mae Owen Residential Hospice House or any organization embracing love, inclusion and diversity — we will all have to work very hard to keep the world from becoming a less kind place without Nancy in it. Imes Funeral Home and Crematory is in charge of arrangements. Online condolences may be shared at www.imesfh.com.
