A resident of Meadowview Villa, Petrolia, formerly of Sarnia, Alison Pamela Byrne passed away at the Charlotte Eleanor Englehart Hospital, Petrolia, at the age of 85. Loving wife of Philip for 63 years and the mother of Kevin (Valerie), Malcolm (Patricia), and David (Arda). She was the grandmother of Andrew, Michael (Rochelle), and Faith, and the great-grandmother of Linden. Alison was predeceased by her parents (obviously), her sisters, her brother, and grandchildren Stephen and Mary-Elisabeth. Alison was born in Harpenden, England, and immigrated to Canada with her family in 1969. Due to the nature of Philip’s work, she lived in various countries including Belgium, Switzerland, United States, and of course England and Canada. She enjoyed the myriad experiences of her travels. A tremendous cook, she will be remembered for the many gourmet meals she prepared. Her grandchildren loved her “Nana Specials” at breakfast. Her boys devoured her homemade peach pies. Her traditional English trifles were always a big hit. The sherried chicken livers (made only once) not so much! The family would like to thank the vascular floor staff at Victoria Hospital, London, and the staff at Charlotte Eleanor Englehart Hospital, Petrolia. A huge thank you to the staff at Meadowview Villa for all of the help they gave Mum over her final years. They would also like to thank her friends who took the time to go and visit her in Petrolia. She always enjoyed these visits. Cremation has taken place. A memorial service will take place at Trinity Anglican Church, 1194 Murphy Road, Sarnia, on Tuesday, December 5, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, sympathy may be expressed through donations to the Inn of the Good Shepherd or the Sarnia & District Humane Society (cheques only at the funeral home please).
