It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother Avis Allen. Survived by her loving children Eric Allen (Cindy) of Revelstoke, Diana O’Brien (Chris) of Edmonton, Carol Campos (Jack) of Kelowna, Abby Benton (Bill) of Port Hardy as well as 10 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren. Mom was raised in Sidmouth B.C. later residing in Revelstoke where she met and married Arnold Allen, together they had four children. Mom’s gypsy life took her to many places where she made many lifelong friends. For those people who were lucky to have met Mom knew what a fun loving and caring person that she was. She spent many years traveling in her motorhome, affectionately named “Miss Piggy” to visit her family and friends.
Mom’s last days were spent how she lived her life, full of p and v. Her last seven weeks spent in Hospice House were some of the best times of her life because she was surrounded by her children and was never alone. We take comfort in knowing that Mom is at peace and her work here is done. “She is just off on another journey.” We would like to thank the staff at the Central Okanagan Hospice for their amazing care of our Mom & loving support of her family.
In lieu of flowers please make donations to Central Okanagan Hospice House, 2035 Ethel Street Kelowna, BC V1Y 2Z6. Condolences to be sent to www.springfieldfuneralhome.com
