It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Allen Grant, formerly of Kinosota, MB, at the Dr. Gendreau Personal Care Home in Ste. Rose, MB on Monday, January 20, 2020 at the age of 90 years.
Allen spent some time in the Manitoba Development Centre and also in Dauphin before joining the Sanderson family in 1982. He fit right into this family unit. He enjoyed walking for mail or going for walks to the highway. He attended the day program at Shorecrest Rest Home. He had a great sense of humour and loved (and teased) all his brothers and sisters, who in turn loved and teased him right back. He lived with "Mom and Dad" for 27 years. When his care needs advanced it was decided he would enter Gendreau Home. He moved there in March of 2009. It was there that he lived out his final years being cared for with respect and patience. The staff built a trusting relationship with him that included teasing and many, many phone calls to "Mom".
Allen was predeceased by his biological sisters Nonie, Elaine, Ethel, Barbara and Dorothy and also two brothers Ian and Bert.
He leaves to mourn his passing, dad and mom, Russell and Mabel Sanderson; siblings; sister, Yvette (Lorne), children, Nikki (Cyrus), Chantelle (Moose), Corinna (Mitch), Carrie-Joy (Destiny), Katrina, Lawrence, Harley; brother, Buck (Rachael), son, Jared; sister, Lisa (Tom), children, Louisa (josh), JR, Dawn; sister, Bev (Barry), children, Brianne (Jason), Brad; brother, Jeff (Tira), children Lily, Lucy; sister Tillou, child Ava; his biological nieces and nephews Mikie, Corky, Fred, Allan, Leslie, Tommy, Duncan, David, Sandy, Rusty, Elaine, Donna, Bob, Joey, Creran and their two brothers; as well as numerous great nieces and nephews.
