4/7/1942 – 17/6/2020

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing away of our mother, Gail Allen. She was a truly beautiful person and the best mother that anyone could hope for. Mum lived her life with a quiet dignity, and wanted her final farewell to be in that same light. Our mother’s wish was for her body to be cremated and that her ashes be placed in my fathers’ grave at Cooma cemetery. Her final farewell will take place this week and will be a private ceremony attended only by family and close friends. In lieu of flowers, our mother asked for donations to be made to MCCR – an organisation committed to fighting the scourge that cancer inflicts on our community. In conclusion, our family would like to thank the staff at Cooma hospital, the extraordinary staff at Sir William Hudson Nursing Home and the her attending doctors, Dr. Christine Human, and Dr. Susan Rainsford. We will miss her dearly, Mick, Steve and Chris Allen (and families)
