In Loving Memory of DRINA ALLEN
October 1949 – July 2014
Drina passed away peacefully on Friday July 18th at Peace Arch Hospital in White Rock. After a teacher certificate in Mathematics Drina went with CUSO in 1983 to Nigeria on a teaching assignment. In Onitsha I had the good fortune to fall in love with Drina and from this day on I had the best time of my life since it was a match of equal minds. We both shared the same idea of traveling and seeing overseas countries. From Belize, Marshall Islands, Bolivia, Columbia to Cambodia we always called White Rock home. Drina likes to play tennis, play guitar, singing in various choirs, ran as an NDP candidate, endless discussion about the world and was always open to give one more party. She is predeceased by her parents Doris and Raeburn Allen. I would like to thank the staff of RCH and Peace Arch Hospital for taking loving care of Drina. Drina is survived by her Sister Gerry (Georg), nephew Mike & niece Carin and four grandchildren and me. As Drina always said one more trip and don’t run too fast ahead of me since I like to catch up with you. Drina thanks again for giving me the opportunity to be your partner for over 34 years through our interesting life. A service and Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date. Donations in her Memory can be made to Peace Arch Hospital.
