Marlene Frances Allen (nee Moore)

September 7, 1940 – May 28, 2020

On the morning of May 28. 2020, Marlene Frances Allen passed away peacefully in her sleep.  She will be forever loved and missed by her husband of 62 years, Don Allen, and her six children and their spouses, Jeff (Norine) Allen, Kandy Allen (David Charnley), Jamie (Sheri) Allen, Penny(Herman) VandeGoede, Calvin (Anne-Marie) Allen, and Jill (Barry) Ewanyshyn as well as numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren.  She is also survived by her brothers and sisters-in-law, Wayne (Claudia) Moore, Frank Jarvis (Adriel Wilson), Bill (Carole) Jarvis, and Don (Sue) Jarvis.  

Mom was born on September 7, 1940 in Winnipeg, Manitoba.At a young age her family moved to Burnaby, BC. It was there that she met Dad in 1957 and they were married on April 3, 1958.  Just after they were married, they moved to Kamloops, where they raised their family.  

Mom enjoyed reading, gardening, singing, and crafting.   Singing was a great passion of Mom’s.  In the 70’s she was involved with the singing group New Century singers.  For many, many years Mom was involved with the choir at the Alliance church until her Alzheimer’s made that no longerpossible.   Mom loved all kinds of crafts, cross-stitching, quilting, and card making to name a few.  Throughout the years all the family and many friends had been grateful recipients of her wonderful creations.  

Mom had many wonderful attributes.  She loved to practice hospitality, had a generous spirit, wrote words of encouragementto many and was a loyal friend.  

Thank you to Calvin and Anne-Marie for your daily visits with Mom these past two years.  Not only did you brighten Mom’s day but also brightened the day of the other residents in her neighbourhood.    Thank you to the staff of Gemstone.  We will be forever grateful for the wonderful care that you provided Mom these past two years. 

Due to Covid19, a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

    So sorry to hear of this loss. Marlene was a very gentle, kind and welcoming woman. She and Don were my “pew partners” and I enjoyed seeing them and having brunch with them after Church. She will be missed most definitely. Hugs and prayers to Don, Kandi and the family.
