~ALLEN, Thelma Elisabeth~
At Providence Healthcare, Toronto, July 17, 2012 at 84.
Deeply missed by sons Mike (Lynn) and Brian (Andrea).
Predeceased by her parents Arthur and Elsie Weatherby and her husband Ray Allen. Adored by her friends and family, Thelma was born May 20, 1928 in Truro, Nova Scotia. She earned a Bachelor of Science with Home Economics from Acadia University, majoring in Nutri…tional Sciences and her family and friends were the grateful beneficiaries of her training. She spread love, loyalty, generosity, compassion and respect everywhere she went and loved finding a good bargain. She battled cancer with intrepid grace, determination and humour, which further endeared her to her family and medical team. The family would like to thank the warm staff at Tapestry at Village Gate West, Dr. Joan Murphy and her wonderful Princess Margaret team, Dr. Michael Ko and the caring staff at the Hillcrest Centre and Providence Healthcare. Cremation has taken place. Interment will be at Union Cemetery in Barrie, Ontario.

The Canadian Cancer Society or the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation.
