ALLEN, Rosemary
Passed on: July 7th, 2015
It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Mrs. Rosemary Allen on Tuesday, July 7th aged 94. Leaving to mourn with many many happy memories are son Graham (Deirdre); daughter Fiona; grandchildren Marilla (Alan), George, Matthew (Cynthia); and great grandchildren Caleb and Anna. She will be remembered as a grand lady by her many relations in Alberta, England, Australia and South Africa and by her countless piano students.
Rosemary grew up in London, England. During the War Years, she taught evacuees in Norfolk before marrying (Arthur Gordon) and raised her family on Mersea Island. She was a natural teacher, able to bring out the best in her many piano students.
In 1976, Rosemary and Gordon moved to Newfoundland to be close to their daughter. She loved her life in Newfoundland and it did not take long for her to feel at home. She quickly became known as a piano teacher, and many of her students now have careers in music. She fully intended to teach piano until the end, but reluctantly had to stop in 2006 following a stroke. With characteristic determination, her interest in life did not stop. She used her computer to keep abreast of current events, used e-mail regularly, googled etc. During her last year she loved being able to Skype.
Rosemary credited the good quality of her life after her stroke to the care and help she received at the Miller Center in St. John's. While the family thought of her as indestructible, Rosemary knew that eventually an obituary would be written and she specifically requested that a big "thank you" go out to all the people in the Miller Center who helped her in 2006.
At her request, a private family service will be held at a later date. Should anyone wish to make a donation in her memory, the Health Care Foundation in St. John's supports the Miller Centre.
