MARY ALLISON

Mary Allison (née Engbrecht) passed away on the morning of June 7, 2019, after a brief illness.
Born in Brookdale and raised in Steinbach, Mary made a name for herself in the Winnipeg business community, becoming the first female president of the Winnipeg Business Association. A feisty and determined lady, Mary was a fashion maven, a musician (playing the organ in the Baptist church for 27 years), a great cook (keeping her extended family well fed on many a holiday) and matriarch to her many nieces and nephews.
She is survived by her loving son Thom Allison and Micah Barnes of Toronto. She is predeceased by her dear husband Milton Allison; and treasured son Bradley Allison of Winnipeg; as well as her parents, John and Mary Engbrecht of Steinbach; her brother John Engbrecht; and sisters, Annie Kehler, Helen Penner and Martha Kemper.
At Mary's request, there will be no service.

The world will be a sadder and
smaller place without her.

I would have loved to have seen you and give you a big hug. I was very happy to see your Mom and Brad a few years ago at the lake. Hope you will stop by again should you get to West Hawk Lake. I have wonderful memories of your family. Love Margaret - Posted by: Margaret (Shier) Martens (Cousin) on: Aug 10, 2019
