Kathleen Marie Borreson (née Stelzner)

March 29, 1951 ~ November 6, 2021

Kathy died peacefully at University of Alberta Hospital on the morning of November 6, 2021 concluding her third struggle with cancer.

She was a nurturer of plants and people. She had a gregarious spirit and a way of touching many lives, befriending some before they’d ever realized it. Bon Accord was her home, and she tended it as if it was her garden. She helped found the public library, reported community news for the Gazette, chronicled and researched Bon Accord history, volunteered her time to local schools, served numerous terms on council, and left her mark in its parks and gardens.

She is survived by her three sons, Thomas, Tim and Greg; one grandson, Tom (son of Tim); her mother, Mary; her brothers, Greg and Bob; her sisters, Marilyn, Janet and Pat; numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews from a diverse and far-flung extended family; and a community of friends who she dearly loved.

We are deeply thankful to all of the wonderful doctors, nurses and care workers who worked to give her time and quality of life, and to everyone in the community who has extended a hand in our time of need. We are working on a fitting tribute to her memory.


"Let there be no goodbyes, only good memories."


Memorial Service

A gathering of friends and family was held in her memory
on November 13, 2021.
Times and geography mean that many could not attend and
we regret any who we could not contact in time.

She will be laid to rest at Bon Accord Cemetery, alongside her husband Bob,
whose memory she carried since his passing in 2014.

In Lieu of Flowers

For those wishing to honour her, we would ask you to carry some small part of her spirit as you see fit.

Remember that she would want you to be happy, and to look out for one another.

Read a good book, paint a picture, plant a flower, encourage a friend, volunteer, share knowledge, bake brownies. 



Wilfred “Wilf” Allarie
March 26, 1947 ~October 25, 2021


Wilfred “Wilf” Allarie passed away on Monday, October 25, 2021 with his loving wife and family by his side.

Wilf is survived by his wife of 50 years, Gayle; daughter, Tammy (Jason); son, Trevor; sisters, Dora (Paul) Schira, Dorothy Pfeifer and Margaret (Frank) Hiebert; granddaughter, Jessica; 2 grandsons, Ryves and Lucas; as well as many nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.

Wilf was predeceased by his parents, Roger and Mary Allarie; 4 brothers, George, Cyril, Edward, and Gordon; 2 sisters, Louise (Dave) Martin; and Bernadette (Dave) Sykora; brother-in-laws, Alex Paley and Leonard Pfeifer.

When Wilf told stories of when he was young, he made life on the farm (Boggy Creek, MB) sound like so much fun. He always lit up with excitement and pride when he spoke of his experiences hunting and trapping. He helped on the family farm from a young age, then moved on to clearing bush through his mid 20’s. One winter, in the Roblin, MB hockey arena, he met Gayle. They dated, fell in love and were married. Work became available in Moose Jaw, SK, where he started his career in carpentry. This led them to Edmonton, AB and then on to Gibbons, AB where he began to maintain the ice at the local hockey arena. Wilf grew up playing baseball and horse shoes and enjoyed watching family and friends sing and play music. He was often found at a baseball diamond, soccer field, bowling alley or lacrosse game though he spent most days at the hockey rink. His love for the game was evident. But he found the most joy in spending time with everyone!
