ALANNA HOGUE AIELLO April 16, 1969 March 28, 2011 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Alanna Hogue Aiello, our beloved wife, daughter, sister, aunt, and best friend at the age of 41. After an eight year battle with cancer, our Warrior Princess went peacefully with her family by her side. Alanna will be forever lovingly remembered and greatly missed by her husband Joe; mother Sandra; sisters Elsie Ann (Aaron) Thomas, and Dodie (Scott) Carleton; nephews Stephen and Jarod Thomas; nieces Kara and Larisa Aiello and Julia and Katie Carleton; father-in-law Ralph Aiello; brother-in-law Tony (Leah) Aiello and many cousins, aunts, uncles and fantastic friends. She was predeceased by father David Hogue and her mother-in-law Fiorina Aiello. Alanna was born in Eriksdale where, with the exception of a few early years spent in Winnipeg, she was raised with her sisters. Though proud of her small town roots, Alanna was a city girl at heart and following her high school graduation moved to Winnipeg and started the Creative Communications course at Red River College. This paved the way for her career in Television with CKY TV and WTN. It was while at CKY TV that Alanna met the love of her life, Joe and married on July 31, 1993. Alanna also loved her books, and for the last few years enjoyed employment with the City of Winnipeg Public Library. The best way to describe our girl is beautiful. Her beautiful face made you smile and instantly want to know her. Her beautiful soul made you love her, and want to be her friend. You just wanted to be around her. Alanna's family and friends meant everything to her as she did to us. Her love and knowledge of music was rarely equalled, but shared by many, as was her joy of movies and excellent TV shows. As much as Alanna loved to spend time with her friends going for lunch, to concerts and movies, she was a home body, and was always happy to spend an evening home with just her and Joe or curled up with a good book . Joe and the family would like to extend a special thanks to the staff at the St. Boniface Hospital Palliative Care ward, who took care of our girl in her final days, and to the staff at the Grace Hospital CancerCare who took care of Alanna for the last eight years. Also a special thank you to Alanna's people who made sure she was comfortable, and happy right up to her last day. It is a testament to her that so many cared. A celebration of Alanna's life will be held 2:00 p.m. Friday, April 1, 2011 at Canad Inns Destination Centre Polo Park, 1405 St. Matthews Avenue. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to CancerCare Manitoba (Grace Hospital), or The Palliative Care Unit at St. Boniface Hospital. We love you Nana ! Until we meet again, We will see you in the stars; Hear you when your songs play, And hold you in our dreams. Bardal Funeral Home and Crematorium 774-7474 Condolences:

Condolences & Memories (1 entries)

  • Before I married, and before Joe married Alanna, I was in love with my Creative Communications classmate Alanna Hogue. For a brief period, in the months of 1987, and early 1988, Alanna was the center of my universe and I hers. Our mutual love of music, books and writing drew us together; we danced, we laughed a lot, but we never spoke much of the future, the young tend to be that way. Her hair was long then, to her shoulders, and was curly, wavy and she had the brightest eyes and smile. I left Winnipeg for a job out west, and never got a opportunity to say goodbye. In the years prior to social media, I heard she got a job at CKY and had married Joe, a friend of mine ironically from university and that she was very happy. I spoke to her only once on the phone after I left Winnipeg, and we shared a laugh, but I never saw her again. And now... I wish I'd known. I wish I could have said something. We parted as friends, and she will forever be a girl I once loved and once loved me. I can still she her as we waltzed together and one of the umpteenth socials we went to, I can still see her at the parties we went to together, our eyes meeting across the room, I can still see her... She had such a wonderful marriage and I would go on to have a wonderful marriage... but none of us forget the love of the young.... Alanna you will be missed, but not forgotten. - Posted by: Anthony Connolly (friend, classmate) on: Apr 06, 2016
