ALLISON, Olga Elizabeth Serena (nee BURCH) - December 31, 1911 - April 16, 2017
It is with great sadness the family announces the death of their loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend on April 16, 2017, at Wyndham Manor, Oakville.
Olga was born at home in the small town of Mannville, Alberta, the fourth (and last surviving) of the six children of John and Carrie Burch.
She married Charles Allison and lived in Edmonton (Highlands) for a few years.
She spent most of her life in Vancouver (Kerrisdale) where she raised her two children, cared for her elderly in-laws and started her own private kindergarten (Kiddie Korner Kindergarten). She recalled this as one of the happiest times of her life.
At age 80, widowed, she moved to Oakville, Ontario, to be close to her two children. She enthusiastically built a new life, spending time with family, making many new friends, entertaining and playing bridge.
She is greatly missed by her daughter Karen Galbraith and her son Frank Allison. She is also sadly missed by son-in-law David, adored grandson Paul (Kelly Forsythe-Galbraith) and great-grandchildren Aidan and Abby Galbraith.
The family wishes to thank the staff at Wyndham Manor for their exemplary care.
At Olga's request, there will be no funeral or memorial service. Cremation has taken place.
