Helping others was Allison’s concern

Following is a tribute to Allison Carrington who died March 29, 2023. Her Funeral was held April 12 at the Church of the Annunciation, Santa Rosa Heights, Arima.

Allison Jestina Carrington was born on September 26, 1950 to Bernadine McSween and Fitzroy Flemming (dec). She was born in Point Fortin but grew up in Gasparillo with her aunt Nora who loved her dearly.

As a young adult, she migrated to the US where she worked very hard in her younger years. On one of her trips back home, she got married to the love of her life, Clyde Carrington. A family was built out of this union.

From the deep southland, the Carringtons bought a house in Santa Rosa Heights. She loved God, she was a devoted wife, a loving mother, and adoring grandmother.

Allison was a devoted member at the Annunciation Church in Santa Rosa Heights. An active hospitality member, she never missed an intercessory group meeting on a Thursday. She assisted the St Vincent de Paul with hampers for the poor.

Her concern in life was always to help someone. She assisted a young mother from start to finish with a home. She said, “I have to ensure that this girl has a shelter for her children and food for the Christmas.” This mission she accomplished.

Allison never said ‘no’ to anyone who requested anything from her.

She started to complain of a pain in December, but thought it was just a gas pain.

In February, it became severe, and she visited the doctor. As the days came by, we saw the painful signs; she prayed and sang hymns through it all. She went to her heavenly Father on March 29 at 8.10 p.m.

We ask God to bless the following persons who took care of her during her short but painful journey: Joyce Philip, Carol McKnight, Annette Jack, Denise Liverpool, and Allison Murren.

To the members of the Annunciation family and the Santa Rosa Heights Community, we say, thank you; to the Church of the Holy Spirit, Malabar, we say, thanks for your support.

Special thanks to Fr Kizito Ameloko, Msgr Michael de Verteuil, Fr Paul Bousignac, Fr Urban Hudlin OP and Deacon Joachim Hernandez for all the prayers said.

Condolences to all her immediate family and friends she left behind.

We hold you close within our hearts and there you will remain to walk with us throughout our lives until we meet again. RIP Allison.
