ROSEMARY JOAN ALLAN (née OLIVE) July 7, 1932 April 8, 2017 Rosemary Joan Allan (née Olive) passed away very peacefully at the age of 84, under the loving care of staff at Tuxedo Villa, in Winnipeg, in the early morning of April 8, 2017. She is survived by son Mark Allan (Marilyn Lowe) of Vancouver; daughter April Buchanan (Geoff Briggs) of Winnipeg; and her pride, grandsons, Douglas Buchanan and Kristian Yeomans. An only child, Rosemary was very grateful to have lived in the beautiful cities of Vancouver and San Diego near her beloved parents, where she had a successful career as a banker and made lifelong friendships through joining the barbershop singing organization, Sweet Adelines. Throughout her life, Rosemary had the joy of singing in musical productions and travelling and competing as a lead in award-winning choruses and quartets. In her later years, she greatly enjoyed spending time helping and entertaining many special elderly friends and rescue pets in need. Her lovely, feminine style, outgoing nature, humour and love of music were very much appreciated by those around her. Always a believer in supportive angels, we know she will be happy to have joined their singing ranks. You've done a wonderful job, Mom. Rest in peace with a song in your heart.
