She was a dedicated member of the Star of the Sea and Good Shepherd Churches. Allison was an accomplished sailor who enjoyed being on the water.
Allison will be forever remembered by her beloved husband, Andre Thompson, her cherished children, Kerry-Anne, Michael, Melissa, Penny, Shannon, Andre, and Carydah; and by Allison’s siblings, Garry, Ken, Lois, Patty and Peter.
‘Yellow Gran’ will be truly missed by her grandchildren, Jarec, Colton, Mikiehla, Andre, Allysha, Sydney, Austin, Teresiah, Travien, Milani, Lillyana, and Jasmine.
