It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of our mother on July 14, 2020 at the South Health Campus in Calgary, Alberta.
Mom will be greatly missed by her daughter Gay; her son Robin (Trina); her grandchildren Christopher, Tegan (Brad), Kirstie, and Britt; and her great granddaughter Violet.
Mom was born in the Crowsnest Pass (Bellevue), Alberta to Leah Allsopp (Bouthillier) and James Allsopp. She had a wonderful childhood with the support of her parents who loved her dearly. After completing her education at Maple Leaf School, mom was employed at the bank in Bellevue. In 1945 she met Arigo Brazzoni (deceased) and they married in 1949. They resided in the Crowsnest Pass, with their 2 children until 1959 at which time they moved to Winnipeg, Manitoba.
Mom was a very active woman who loved to swim, figure skate, dance/teach dancing, sewing, baking, her job as an office manager, and was a wonderful mother. She loved all animals, however she had a special place in her heart for her dogs, and grieved the loss of each one over the years. Mom also loved cruising and was able to visit so many wonderful places. She always said she would love to live on a cruise ship. Those were wonderful times and she was always up for a challenge regardless of her health issues.
Mom had so many wonderful friends and they describe her as being kind, compassionate and loyal. She always took pride in her appearance and dressed beautifully. Mom also had a wonderful sense of humour and looked at the bright side of life.
Mom and Dad moved back to the Crowsnest Pass in 2000. She missed the beauty of the mountains and rejoined friends she had left behind in 1959. Mom became involved with the Senior Centre in Bellevue as secretary. She loved playing cards with the ladies at the centre and gladly assisted wherever she could.
We are grateful for her unconditional love as she encouraged us to be the best we could be and to be true to ourselves.
"To live in hearts left behind is not to die". Until we meet again, we love you.
