In Memory of Patricia Allen

Patricia “Pat” Allen was a precious and loving Wife, Mother, Grandmother and Mother-in-law (Mother-in-Love) and a true friend.

It is with deep sorrow and much love that our family announces her passing on March 5th, 2024. After years of bravely fighting serious health battles, she left this world to be welcomed into the loving arms of God.

A beautiful child, Pat was born in Ottawa, Ontario on March 23rd, 1941 to proud parents Albert Ballard and Rita Hebert. Now they all rejoice in heaven together.

Pat met her Prince Charming Pierre Allen as young teenagers and were married when she was 19 years old and he was 20. They raised their children, welcomed their grandchildren, travelled the world and enjoyed every moment together. Their love endured for 64 years until death did them part as they vowed on their wedding day.

Pat will be greatly missed by her loving husband Pierre; sons: Dan, James (Ruth), Ron (Lea); Grandchildren: Rob (Charlene), Mandy, Nataly, Nelly and Justine.

The family wishes to thank Dr. Caroline Biscay, Nurse Veronica from St. Elizabeth, Dr. Rebekah Murphy, and all the staff at St. Vincent for all their work assisting Pat in having a peaceful passing. We also wish to thank our extended family and caring friends for their kind words of sympathy and prayers. Unfortunately, due to time and space constraints we cannot name you all but please know that every one of you is very much appreciated.

The family will receive relatives and friends at Heritage Funeral Complex, 1250 Trim Rd., Orléans, on Wednesday, March 13, 2024 from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Memorial Service will follow in the Heritage Chapel at 11:30 a.m.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Pat’s memory to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Condolences

The first thought that came to mind when I heard about her passing was I will never hug her again. She would give kisses on the cheek then a heart to heart hug and you could feel how happy she was to be around you. It was a special hug. Then I thought of how I’m not gonna hear her call me her “special little girl” and I thought about everything that wasn’t now before thinking of her life that was. It was long, it was full and beautiful.
I remember all the chats on the Chesterfield and watching shows, you know Grandma Pat loved her programs. The PVR was always full. She introduced me to shows like Murdoch Mysteries, Hudson and Rex, Outlander and the book it was based off. She also happened to be the person who introduced me to romance novels. Her Kobo was full of them and now my Kindle is full of them. She taught me the importance of a good hairdresser, for your hair and your heart. I am now going 3 years strong at Rustica Hair Lounge with Alicia, you might say she’s my Gaetan.
I recently changed my mind about never going on a cruise, ever. My grandma dreamt of a beach the week before she passed and I wondered which beach she dreamt of. The beaches of Greece maybe, or Italy, Ireland or Argentina perhaps (it was Portugal). All just a few of the countries she visited in her lifetime, many of them, via cruise.
One of the best things she taught me is that you should always be generous with your love. Regardless of where people come from. And just maybe if your lucky you too will live a life full of loved ones wether that was a friend you had all your life, or a marriage of over 60 years or kids and grandkids to fill holidays with laughter. That was her full and beautiful life.

Patricia is a patient that will be truly missed by all our TEAM at Crown Pointe Pro Physio … She was a wonderful ++ , strong , beautiful patient ( princess) who always found a way to make every one feel good about themselves . She was passionate of all life moments and cheerful even in the worse times . Her love for Pierre ( her Prince ) was enormous and showed all couples how precious and special life together can be .
She truly was able to dance through all the storms !
Our most sincere condolence to Pierre and all the family .

Pete, nobody understands what you have been going through more than me.
Patricia’s obituary tells me of a love story that so parallels ours.
Right down to Veronica and St Vincent’s.
The love over all those years and the family that you created along with the accompanying memories will surely help you and your family get through this.
You are in my thoughts.

Dear Pierre and family,
Our sincere condolences on the passing of Patricia from the Pastoral care team at Divine Infant Parish. Pat and Pete were such a joy to visit and although our visits were brief back in the fall we are very grateful for the time we shared getting to know Pat and Pete and thankful that we were able to bring Communion to them and pray with them. The joy in their hearts when they talked about their sons was such a joy to hear. May Patricia rest in eternal peace with her Lord. May God comfort Pete and family in the day ahead.
Diane Collins, Pastoral Care, Divine Infant Parish

My memories of Pat:

As a Wife – She was very much in love with her husband Pierre. Her eyes sparkled every time she saw him and she was the apple of his eyes. What a love!

As a Mother – She was very proud of her sons, their achievements and their respective families. She was always mentioning how grateful she was to have Dan, James and Ron for their love and support throughout the years and specially during her time of illness. Together with her husband, they raised 3 wonderful men. Pat loved her sons deeply.

As a Grandmother – Pat was an amazing Grandmother who would dot on all of her Grandchildren and showered them with love. She was so proud of Rob and the man he has become. Pat was so excited for Rob and Charlene’s wedding and she couldn’t wait to find the right dress and celebrate them both. She will be there for sure in Spirit. Pat loved Rob and Charlene!
Pat was always proudly showing the beautiful paintings that Mandy had made for her. The painting of a lovely red rose and the painting of “Dolly” (Pat’s little dog). The paintings are accurate depictions of these and Pat cherished them! Pat loved Mandy!
Some years ago by the pool Pat embraced Nataly, Nelly and Justine all at the same time in one of her nice long hugs saying how happy she was that that they were in her life. The sentiment was reciprocal.
Pat loved all her grandchildren and all her grandchildren loved her!

As a Mother-in-Law (Mother-in-Love) – Pat was so welcoming and loving throughout the years and would always say that she loved her daughters-in-law because they made her sons happy! We love you too Pat ! May you rest in peace our beautiful angel!

We were never fortunate enough to meet Rob’s grandmother, Pat. However, after hearing all of Rob and Charlene’s experiences, we feel that we knew her. She gave off the impression that she loved and lived large for her family. We were aware that Pat was thrilled to learn of Rob and Charlene’s engagement and was eagerly anticipating their wedding. Pete and Pat, as well as Ruth and James, embraced our daughter Charlene from the beginning. We send Pete and the entire family our sincere condolences during this trying time.
