August 19, 1929 – March 27, 2019
On Wednesday, March 27, 2019 peacefully during the night at the age of 89 years. Beloved wife of the late Carl Allen. Loving mother of Drury (Hélène), Matthew and Paul (Hilary). Cherished grandmother of Caroline (Marc), Nicolas (Annie), Christine (Alex), Taylor (Nick), Mitchell and Mackenzie and great grandmother to Romain, Alice, Emile and Charlotte. She is survived by her sister Martha and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her brothers Bill and Tommy.
Nancy was a very outgoing and loving person who always put the care of others first. She made a positive and lasting impression wherever she went with her amazing sense of humor and quick wit. She loved spending time with family and friends at the cottage at Danford Lake and for many years she was an avid antique collector. She also enjoyed spending time volunteering with the Aylmer Heritage Association. More recently, she made some very dear friends while living at RiverPark Place, especially staff members, Bev Townsen and Jennifer Forsyth.
Although she faced many longstanding and serious health issues, her determination, tenacity
and perseverance are hallmarks of her personality and she has set a high standard to emulate. She is, and will always be, a model of strength to her three sons and their families.
A special thanks to Dr. Elizabeth Edwards for her compassionate care and support over many years.
