Mohi-McBurnie, Alison Death Notice 1997

On Sunday March 23, 1997.
Alison was a lady who was loved and respected greatly by her family and friends.
I personally didn’t spend a great deal of time with my Aunt Alison though I did meet her which gave me some in-sight to what a very special lady she was.
While being a very free spirited person she was also greatly dedicated career wise and accomplished highly.
Alison visited me in Australia, after meeting her we all sat down to a family meal in which I cooked.
A while through dinner I found myself amazed by the way she related not only to me but everyone else.
She was so in touch with the younger generation I felt though I was talking to a teenager in an adults body.
Her great sense of humour and wisdom combined, left us dazzled for days.
She’s the type of woman who could definitely teach “an old dog new tricks”.
Alison being a very free spirited person is now finally free, once again flying off the bigger and better things.
Alison, your body might have left us, but your soul and love will go on living in each of us.
You are one very inspirational, special lady.
Dearly loved daughter of the late Bernard and Phyllis, Grand daughter of the late Dorothy and Arch, sister of Peter, Maria, Robin, Denise, Michael, Pandora, Philip and Derek.
Alison funeral has been held.
