In Loving Memory Of
Silvia (Lucero) Allain
1947 ~ 2023

Silvia (Lucero) Allain


At Maison Albert House in Moncton, NB, passed away peacefully Silvia (Lucero) Allain, 76, from Dieppe, NB, on Wednesday, September 13th, 2023. Born in Temuco, Chile, she was the eldest daughter of late Pedro León Lucero Bustos and late Clara Silvia Loaíza Veloso.

The enormous courage and tenacity she demonstrated when arriving alone in Canada at 17 years old to study nursing and learn French, she also showed until her last breath, afflicted with the incapacitating disease ALS.

Silvia was an exemplary woman, full of zest for life, enthusiasm, kindness and compassion, an inspiration for her two beloved daughters and everyone who was lucky enough to cross her path. She was a very devoted mother, an affectionate and very loving grandmother, a loyal and caring friend, a radiant and very strong woman. She was always the first one to send birthday wishes, donations and sympathy cards. She was very generous with her time, a devout volunteer throughout her life for many causes, such as the pastoral care of baptisms and home communion for the St-Anselme parish and the Tree of Hope Campaign. She worked for 34 years as a nurse at the Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont Hospital in Moncton, NB, where she primarily worked as a chief and clinical nurse of the intensive care. She welcomed new challenges at work with pride and fervor, including the planning and opening of a new intensive surgical care unit in 1983 and the initiative of a cardiac telemedicine program in collaboration with Saint John Regional Hospital in NB to name a few. She loved her profession, especially the direct care of patients and their families, whom she treated with utmost respect, compassion and professionalism. She was appreciated and respected by her colleagues who honored her with an award of excellence in 2002. She was proud of her accomplishments carried out with passion in the goal of improving and providing the best quality care for patients.

Her big smile was contagious, and her altruism and resilience were like no other. Silvia loved music, dance and her favorite season of autumn. She also loved traveling, cooking, playing with her two cherished grandsons as well as socializing with her friends, the Allain family and her immediate family, whom she loved deeply and who appreciated her immensely.

She is survived by her two daughters, Lisa Laforge (Joey) of Dieppe and Isabelle Allain-Labelle (JP) of Bouctouche Bay; her beloved grandsons Mateo and Theo; the father of her daughters Jean-Charles Allain of Bouctouche Bay; her brothers Carlos (Carmen) and Pedro (Maria Julia) of Chile; her sisters Carmen (Javier) and Ximena (Sergio) of Chile as well as many nephews and nieces in Canada and Chile.

She will be forever and profoundly loved and missed by her daughters, family and friends. Her love will give us strength to continue to live life fully until we are reunited again.

Visitation will be held from Passage-Chartersville, 363 Amirault Sreet, Dieppe, NB, (506) 857-1901, on Thursday, September 21st, , 2023 from 7 to 9pm. 

Funeral mass will be held from St-Anselme RC Church, Dieppe, NB, on Friday, September 22nd, 2023 at 2pm.

In her memory, a donation would be appreciated to Maison Albert House or ALS Society of NB and NS.

The family will be forever grateful to the Extra-Mural team as well as the staff and volunteers at Maison Albert House for their loving, compassionate and respectful care.
