~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.
At Thelma’s request, there will be no formal funeral service. There will be informal celebrations of her life at times and locations to be determined. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation in her name to
The Canadian Cancer Society or the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation.

Peaceful Transition Inc. has been a part of Barrie and the surrounding community since 1995. In that time, we have grown to become an easy alternative to the traditional full-service funeral homes. We provide simple options for cremation and burial at a fraction of the cost. There are two types of funeral establishments governed by the Board of Funeral Service in Ontario, Full Service Funeral Homes and Transfer Services. While Peaceful Transition Inc. is classified as a Transfer Service, we provide almost all of the same services as a funeral home without the need of their involvement and at a much lower cost. We specialize in keeping things simple which means no extras or added costs and personalized care, respect and service for both the deceased and your family. Our purpose is not to pressure you into purchases that you don’t require.
