There is a saying if you truly love someone, you will overlook their negatives. We heard stories of many longtime couples separating due to irreconcilable differences. But that was not the case with Patricia Healey and her husband of over five-decade, Engelbert Humperdinck. Healey supported her husband despite his multiple affairs and allegations. If you don’t know, Engelbert is a British pop singer who has sold more than 140 million records worldwide.
Patricia was born on September 10, 1938, and her age was 84 as of 2020. She died in Feburary of 2021 due to Alzheimer’s. Not too long ago, she found out she had Alzheimer’s. With constant support and care, Healey was determined to overcome her illness.
Over Five Decade Of Married Life
Patricia and Engelbert first met in 1956 in Leicester. According to the sources, the couple met on a dance floor when Patricia was only 18. Reportedly, Engelbert was madly in love with her at first sight and asked her to dance with him. Leading from the dance, he asked her on a date the following day, to which Patricia agreed, and soon they were a couple. After dating for a few years, the couple married in 1964. They have four children, and three are sons, Scott, Jason, Bradley, and a daughter, Louise. Patricia and Engelbert have eight grandchildren in total.

Engelbert cheated on Patricia?
Patricia once revealed that her husband had many paternity lawsuits filed against him. Meanwhile, Engelbert said that being in show business made him forget about his personal life. However, he soon realized that Patricia got hurt by his actions. Since then, he had been working to make it up to her. In an interview, he said:
“I think my wife got hurt a lot. I’ve tried to make it up to her. I ring her three or four times a day – not because of guilt but because I want to talk. She [Patricia] knew I always loved her more.”
In September 2019, the singer released an official music video, You, as a romantic gift to his wife on her birthday. Patricia was a perfect example of a loving spouse, as she didn’t leave Engelbert even after knowing about his adultery. Do you think her decision not to leave him was right despite his multiple marital affairs?
According to the sources, Engelbert regrets not being present and cheating on his wife multiple times now that she is gone. However, he has enough good memories of her to hold on to for the rest of his life. Further, with Engelbert realizing his mistake, the couple was stronger than ever during her final days.
Suffering from Alzheimer
Patricia has been battling Alzheimer’s for the past 11 years. Engelbert has employed several acupuncturists, holistic healers, and doctors to cure her illness.
In an interview, he expressed joy by sharing that Patricia is recovering. He said: “She’s doing okay considering she’s had it for the past ten years. She still knows me and knows everybody. Our son Scott came over from Australia two days ago, and she called him by his name. That’s unheard of because, after ten years of Alzheimer’s, nobody can say people’s names like that. We’re doing everything to help her. It’s important to investigate every avenue.”
