The passing of Juanita Marie (Geikie) Allison, wife of Colin Clark Allison of Rusagonis, NB (married October 14, 1954) ocurred on March 9, 2022, at the Dr. Everett Chalmers Hospital at the age of 85. Born in Miramichi, NB, on April 25, 1936, she was the daughter of the late Mary and William Geikie.
Juanita was a military spouse, a homemaker, a wonderful cook, and a loving, caring mom. She lived a quiet life and devoted all her time and energy to her family. In later years she loved camping with her family and enjoyed watching the boats from her camper patio.
She will be dearly missed by her family and friends.
