Donna “Lorraine” Allen

Nov 12, 1935 – Dec 3, 2017
With heavy hearts we announce the passing of a beautiful soul.  Lorraine passed away peacefully with her family by her side Dec. 3, 2017 after a brief but courageous battle with cancer.  

Throughout her illness, she always maintained her unforgettable laugh and sense of humor.  Lorraine enjoyed the simple pleasures in life and was happiest surrounded by family.  Countless meals and gatherings were shared at her home.  Family, or not, you were treated as her own.  She loved spending time outdoors gardening, bird watching, camping and especially drinking her morning cup of coffee!  

Lorraine will be lovingly remembered by her son Garth (Denise) Allen, daughters Dee (Lorne) Spate and Debbie (Ron) McCartney; grandchildren Courtney Allen, Krista Krahn (Spate), Kris Spate and Ainsley McCartney;  great grandchildren Noah and Lincoln Krahn; siblings Del (Bettie) Feller, Shannon (Gerry) Hill, Murray (Beth) Feller, Chris (Bill) Funk, Theresa (Bruce) Ward and Linda (Gary) Pringle as well as many nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.

Lorraine was predeceased by her loving husband George, her parents Lois and Helmut Feller and brother Levi Feller.

Special thanks to the staff at Kootenay Lake Hospital, especially RN Julie, Dr. Reinecke, Dr. Van de Berg, Dr. Merritt, Dr. Kirsten, Nelson Paramedics, North Shore Fire Dept., Nelson Community Health Workers, Home Care Nursing (Red Team), and Brody and Clancy at Safeway Pharmacy.

At Lorraine’s request there will be no service.  Should you wish, a donation may be made in Lorraine’s memory to the Scleroderma Association of BC, PO Box 16155, Lynn Valley, North Vancouver BC V7J 3H2.
