Alison passed away peacefully at Heidehof Home for the Aged in St.
Catharines at the age of 92 on Wednesday, November 8, 2023. Devoted wife of the late Ronald Goffin (2018) for over sixty-five years. She is survived by sons Fred (Alison Jean) and Jeff, sister Shirley Holmes, and grandchildren Sam and Veronika.
Alison was born in Douglastown, New Brunswick and moved to St.
Catharines in 1949 finding work at English Electric where she met Ron.
They married in 1953 and soon after she became a full-time Mom. Alison and Ron attended Memorial United Church (now Trillium United) for many years where she joined the UCW and Ron sang in the choir. Alison was always happy to make cookies, cakes, and sandwiches for bake sales and church events.
Alison and Ron enjoyed many years camping with friends and travelled extensively. She always kept a travel diary and made especially meticulous notes of the meals, particularly how many desserts Ron had!
One of their favourite winter destinations was Venice, Florida, where they spent many Februarys soaking up the sun and beachcombing with other snowbirds.
Alison was a long-time volunteer with Meals on Wheels and at Linhaven where she helped run the concession with Ron. She had a quick wit and enjoyed a good laugh with whomever she met. Cremation has taken place. Arrangements entrusted to PASSFIELD MORTUARY SERVICES INC. (905)682 0474. Please join Alison’s family for a celebration of her life that will be held at Heidehof (600 Lake Street) on
Thursday, November 16, 2023, at from 2 to 4PM. If desired, donations to Heidehof, or a charity of your choice in Alison’s memory would be appreciated by her family.
