On September 19, Annette Cecile Mary Allarie passed away peacefully at the age of 78 years.
Raised in Jarvie, Alberta Annette was a business owner and retired in Edmonton with her husband Armand in 1987. Annette was an energetic spirit who had a wonderful sense of humour. Her great joy in life was her family, her children and grandchildren. She enjoyed being physically active, especially walking outdoors, and loved to travel. She was very creative and enjoyed knitting and quilting. She was a joy to those who knew her, and will be sadly missed.
She is survived by her three sons, Brian (Colleen) of Castlegar, Gordon (Karen), and Randy (Catherine) both of Edmonton, and her step-daughter Phyllis of Buckinghamshire, England; her nine grandchildren, Marc, Alexandre, Emma, Maya, Kent, Christie, Jenna, Ewan, and Aidan; her sister Pauline Allarie (Arthur) and her brother Bobby Caouette (Shirley); and many nieces and nephews.
