Pansy Allen

May 25, 1934 ~ August 28, 2018

Mrs. Pansy Allen passed away peacefully with her husband Les by her side on Tuesday, August 28, 2018 at Whitehorse, Yukon.  Pansy was born in a wall tent on May 25, 1934 on the river at Johnson’s Crossing, the daughter of Jake & Mary Jackson of Brooks Brook, Yukon.  She was united in marriage on a cold, blustery day to Les Allen on January 3, 1956 at St. Philips’ Anglican Church in Teslin.

Pansy was proud to be a homemaker and artist.  She raised five children while continuing her passion for sewing traditional crafts.  She was an excellent cook and enjoyed preparing meals for her family and friends.  The teapot was always on at Pansy’s house, whether out at Johnson’s Crossing or in her later years at Closeleigh Manor.  Fall time had to be her favourite time or year, as she spent countless hours berry picking, and putting up jams and jellies to share with her friends.  She was also a bit of a curling fan and enjoyed a good game on the telly with her husband by her side. 

Pansy is survived by Les, her husband of 63 years, her children William (Shawn), Mary (Bill), Minnie (Jim), Patricia (Dan) and Gina (Ken); 9 loving grandchildren; 4 great-grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews across Canada & Great Britain. 

At Pansy’s request there will be no service. 

Do not weep for me for I have not gone.
I am the wind that shakes the mighty Oak.
I am the gentle rain that falls upon your face.
I am the spring flower that pushes through the dark earth.
I am the chuckling laughter of the mountain stream.

Do not weep for me for I have not gone.
I am the memory that dwells in the heart of those that knew me.
I am the shadow that dances on the edge of your vision.
I am the wild goose that flies south at Autumns call and I shall return at Summer rising.
I am the stag on the wild hills way. I am just around the corner. 

Therefore, the wise weep not, 
But rejoice at the transformation of my Being.
