Alison was born in Forfar, Scotland on 3rd December 1944 to her loving parents John and Eleanor Milne. Shortly after her birth the family moved to Clayton-le-Moors where she remained until getting married in 1963 and set up her family home on Windsor Road. Alison began her working life at OXO and later at the Plastic factory on Meadow Street before she began work with her husband at his TV shop on Church Street where she looked after the shop and took care of all the telephone calls. Following her time at the shop, Alison went on to qualify as a mental health nurse, this was her true vocation and she loved her role at Calderstones Hospital, Alison continued to study and qualified as a Behavioural Therapist adding to her already extensive knowledge, she continued to work at Calderstones up to her retirement.
Following her retirement Alison loved to travel and always enjoyed trips abroad travelling worldwide to visit her family who live all over the world. In her later life Alison found love and companionship with Tony, they enjoyed each others company and always enjoyed trips out together searching for a new place to enjoy a drink and a meal meeting new people along the way.
Following her diagnosis of cancer eighteen months ago Alison faced her battle with great strength and dignity, she was lovingly cared for at her home by her two sons and the Macmillan and District Nursing teams and always looked forward to catching up with her two daughters as they checked in on the telephone each day from Doha and Windsor.
