Edna Louise Allen
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Edna Louise Allen (Pledge) on February 1, 2023, at the wonderful age of 91. Reunited with her husband Jim Allen, she was a loving and dedicated mother to Debbie Turner (Brian), Brenda Grape, Brad Allen (Laurie), grandmother to Ryan Turner, Katelyn Joslin (Pat), Mathew and Samantha Grape, Erika and Taylor Allen, and great grandmother to Maggie and Rosie Joslin. Edna lived her life with a passion and commitment to truly make a difference. Born in St. John, New Brunswick, Edna, at the age of 18 boarded a bus to Toronto where she met her husband, raised her family and through her career and extensive community involvements touched the lives of many people. She will be forever in our hearts and greatly missed.
