Mary "May" Allen

It is with sadness that the family of May announces her passing at Hillside Village on Tuesday, December 06, 2011 at the age of 93 years.

May was born in Burnaby, BC on January 08 1918 to parents James and Mary Dalziel. May met and married Jack Allen. In 1947 they moved to Salmon Arm and in 1957 they moved out the Lake. May spent many years of her working career as Sears and Eatons as well as assisting her husband Jack in his Egg plant. In 1980 Jack passed away at the age of 68 years.

May was a hard worker and always providing for her family with boundless love, she nurtured each of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

May will be deeply missed by her daughters; Marlene, Jackie (John), Juanita and Pat, brother Bill Dalziel, sisters; Rita and Evie, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. We have truly lost a beautiful mother, however we are blessed with the many memories.

At May’s request there will be no service.
