Sandra ALLAN

ALLAN, Sandra Marion Elaine

It is with deep regret that the family of Sandra Marion Elaine Allan (nee: Verbeck) report her death on Monday, May 27th, 2013 at Fraser Canyon Hospital. Sandy was born June 14th, 1956, the youngest daughter of Edythe Verbeck and the late Cyril (Cy) Verbeck. She married Don Allan on August 21, 1993. She leaves to mourn her loss her husband…Don Allan, her mother…Edythe Verbeck and her two sisters…Maureen Collis of Didsbury, Alberta and Janice Lynn Verbeck of Coquitlam, BC. Sandy was a graduate of Simon Fraser University and held teaching positions for 21 years within the Fraser Canyon School District at Boston Bar, Yale and Hope. A diagnosis of Lupus and eventually of Scleroderma in 1997 necessitated her resigning her teaching position in June 1999. Scleroderma is an incurable auto-immune disease which attacks the major organs – the heart, the lungs, etc. During the intervening years, Sandy enjoyed gardening, reading and designing and making her greeting cards. She also had a great affection for her dogs, Shelties; taking great pride in their achievements when they won Championships at dog shows in the Fraser Valley. Sandy also enjoyed her annual month at the family cottage on Green Lake in the Cariboo. She so enjoyed her many encounters with the wildlife that exists in that area. But most of all she cared deeply for her many friends who gave her such support during the difficult years. Her memorial service will be held in Grace Baptist Church on Saturday, June 1st at 2 pm. with Pastor Jeff Kuhn officiating. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Scleroderma Association of B.C. c/o Box 218, Delta, BC V4K 3N7
