It is with sadness that the family of Allen Wilson announce his death on Tuesday, October 22, 2019, in Trenton, at the age of 79. Allen is survived by his wife of 27 years, Betty, and his two daughters, Cindy (Don MacLean) and Natalie (Beth Ward), and his step-son, Ricky Jackson (Charlene Rondeau). He will be greatly missed by his sisters, Anne (Jack Sorensen) and Maureen Yearsley and their families, as well as his five grand-daughters: Jordana, Rozlyn, Lesley, Vivian and Hanna. He will be remembered with fondness by all the Wilson-MacLean clan. Allen was predeceased by his parents, Aileen and Gerry Wilson, and his sister Vivian. Allen was born and raised in Kirkland Lake, Ontario. He worked for the A&P food stores for more than 40 years, residing in communities all across Northern Ontario, but spending many years in Timmins and North Bay. He married Betty Farrow Jackson in the spring of 1992, and they shared a long and lasting love together. Allen’s quiet wit was always evident, and he loved to laugh. He was very connected to his immediate and extended family, and loved the annual family reunions at the MacLean Cottage near Sandbanks. He was an avid card player and spent many an evening playing cards with Betty and their long-time friends, Doris and Gil Lajeunesse. In 2016, Allen and Betty moved from North Bay to Trenton, and immediately set about making new friends and memories. All of his Trenton friends will be sure to miss his friendliness and good nature.
Family and friends are invited to attend a celebration of Allen’s life on Saturday, October 26, 2019, at 2:00pm, in the church hall at the Trenton United Church, 85 Dundas Street East, Trenton.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Trenton Memorial Hospital Foundation (www.tmhfoundation.com), the Belleville Salvation Army Lunch Room program (email them directly at firstname.lastname@example.org) or Fixed Fur Life Animal Rescue (www.fixedfurlife.com) will be gratefully acknowledged by the family.
