Loreen Marie Allen (nee Roach)
July 17 1937 – January 22 2016
Family members wish to announce the sad passing of Loreen Marie Allen of Courtenay BC.
Predeceased by her parents, Ken and Lorna Roach. Loreen is survived by her loving husband Bill, daughter Sheila Grant (Craig), son Stan Allen, daughter Donna Bellamy (Glenn) and grandchildren Cody, Dallas and Brittany. Loreen is also survived by her siblings Anita Buxton (Ken), Gail Adrienne, Gary Roach (Joan) and all their children as well as extended family members.
Loreen was born and raised in Victoria where she obtained her RN at St. Joseph’s Hospital (Victoria). Loreen moved to Prince George in 1960 where she and Bill raised their family, she worked as a nurse, and was actively involved with Girl Guides and the Alzheimer Society. Loreen loved puttering in her gardens and spending summers at the Nukko Lake cabin. Loreen and Bill moved to Courtenay in 2008 where she spent her time gardening and walking along the ocean beaches with Bill and their dog, Jake.
The family would like to thank the caring nurses and staff of St. Joseph’s Hospital (Comox), with special thanks to Dr. Stephen Matous.
No service by request. Family and friends will have a memorial gathering at a later date in the summer to remember Loreen.
