Alys L. Royce, 77, a longtime Montville resident, died peacefully on May 20. Born in Middletown on June 11, 1941, she was the daughter of the late James and Eva (Malcarne) Sypher of Chester.

Alys enjoyed being a lifeguard and teaching swim lessons while growing up in Chester. She was a longtime production manager at John Meyers and Jones of New York in Norwich, and later retired from Thames Printing in Norwich, where she worked as an executive assistant.

She met the love of her life while attending Central Connecticut State University in 1960. Alys married her beloved husband Bruce M. Royce on April 6, 1963, and recently celebrated 56 loving years. In addition to traveling and spending time with family and friends, Alys enjoyed cooking, gardening, golfing, swimming, and yoga.

She will be sadly missed, but remembered with love. In addition to her husband Bruce, she is survived by a son, Scott Royce, and his wife Kishan of Black Foot, Idaho; a daughter, Kim Jacobs, and her husband Matthew of Norwich; and two brothers, James A. Sypher of Deep River and Ronald G. Sypher of Beverly Hills, Florida. She is also survived by three grandchildren, Sarah E. Royce, Colin M. Jacobs, and Maeve A. Jacobs; a great grandson, Gerald L. Lemieux; and several nieces and nephews.

A Funeral Service was held on May 28 at the First Baptist Church, 239 W. Main St., Norwich, followed by a reception at the Jensen’s Community Center in Uncasville. The Woyasz & Son Funeral Home was assisting with arrangements. The family is very grateful to the dedicated, compassionate, and talented doctors, nurses, and staff at Lawrence & Memorial, Yale-New Haven, and Hartford Hospitals. In lieu of flowers, a donation can be made to the charity of your choice.
