Crib Note – Lucy Marie Royle

Beautiful Lucy Marie Royle made her way into the world on September 18th, with brown hair and brown eyes, weighing eight pounds, two ounces; and boasting an elegant 21 inches in length. Lucy’s very proud parents are Caroline and Zack Royle. Her maternal grandparents are Sharon and Larry Chambers, and her maternal great-grandmother is Beverly Dutcher. Lucy’s paternal grandparents are Gwen and Michael Royle, and her paternal great-grandmother is Anita Gorman. Ready to welcome Lucy with open arms was her big brother, Peter Gorman Royle, two years of age. The happy family of four is at home in Our Town.

Peter Gorman Royle was delighted to hold his little sister, Lucy.
