Grace Allen completed her long life’s journey on September 12, 2010, in her ninety-seventh year. Born in Nottingham, England in 1913, Grace travelled across the Atlantic Ocean with her family in 1917 to begin a new life in Saskatchewan. She married Hugh Colin (Bill) Allen in 1935, and moved to the Chilliwack area in 1941. In 1944 the family settled at Cultus Lake, where Grace resided until 2005. Grace was an active member of the Cultus Lake community, attending and assisting Cultus Lake Memorial Church and related organizations. She was an exceptional cook, a gifted artist, and a kind grandmother. Grace was predeceased by her husband Hugh in 1987, and by her daughter Gail in 1995. She is survived by her sons Ben and David and lovingly remembered by her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

A graveside service will be held at Chilliwack Cemetery, Friday, Sept. 17th at 2:00 p.m.
