It is with sadness that the family of Elizabeth Allardyce announces her death at home on Saturday, October 29, 2022 at the age of 88. Born in Winchester, Mass, on December 7, 1933, she was the daughter of the late Thomas and Sarah (Smith) Wilson.
Elizabeth leaves behind her sons, Daniel Allardyce (Won) and Tom Allardyce (Lori); granddaughter, Hanna; sister, Mary Schussler; brother, Ian Wilson; and many nieces and nephews. In addition to her parents, Elizabeth was predeceased by her siblings.
Elizabeth spent her early years in New England and attended high school in Arlington, Mass. Upon graduation she worked as an operator at the Bell Telephone Company. After marrying, she moved around the US before arriving in Canada in the 1960’s. She worked for many years in the University of New Brunswick’s Graduate Studies Office. She was a devoted champion of animal welfare and a serial rescuer of cats needing a home. She loved spending her leisure time with her craft group and her book club.
There will be no services at this time. Interment will take place in Massachusetts at a later date. For those who wish, donations in Elizabeth’s memory may be made to the Fredericton SPCA. Online condolences may be left at www.moderncremation.ca.

Deepest Condolences from the Campbell family in Fredericton. I forwarded the obituary to Randy McQuade as I told my mother about Dans wedding in Kings Landing and Scott was apart of it. Great memories from your house up the hill. Would love to see the wedding photos Michael Campbell firstname.lastname@example.org
