ObituaryShare A Memory

Norma Jean Allegre, 91, of Yakima died on Sunday, April 29, 2018 at Parkside Nursing Care Center. She was born to Berch D. and Helen Housley West on November 15, 1926 in Yakima, Washington. During the war years after seeing her brother, father, friends, and cousins all off to war, she moved to Tacoma to work for Mount Rainier Motor Depot. Upon returning home she met and married Robert Johnston. They moved to the White Salmon area in 1952 and resided there for 25 years while raising her family of three. She managed a buffet in Hood River, Oregon which was very popular with lots of folks. 

On March 2, 1969 she and Donald E. Allegre were married in Hood River, Oregon, and moved back to Yakima in 1972. Don and Norma enjoyed trips to the ocean, walking the beaches looking for shells and enjoying the peace and quiet. She also enjoyed doing crafts and crocheting until health issues arose that prevented her fingers and hands from allowing her to. At that point caring for her flowers was much easier. 
 
Norma was a softball and baseball enthusiast. Bowling was also a great enjoyment for her. She scaled and stamped in several fruit warehouses in Yakima and White Salmon as well. 
 
She is survived by her daughter, Patty (Jeff) Lydin, as well as six grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her husband, Donald Allegre, and sons, Robert D. Johnston and David G. Johnston. 
 
Thank you for the wonderful days we shared together. Until we meet again my prayers will still be with you, until we meet again. Your mom, step mom, grandmother, step grandmother, and great grandmother. I loved you all.
