Her parents Walter and Estelle Brown and step mother Dorthea Brown all of Amberley passed before her. Allene was born in Amberley, Ontario very close to Lake Huron. She attended Kincardine High School and later graduated as a school teacher from Stratford Teacher's College in 1939. She taught in one room school houses with 8 grades of pupils in Huron and Ashfield and Kinloss Townships. She married the love of her life- Eldon Bradley in December 1943 when he was able to receive a three day leave from the Royal Canadian Air Force. When World War Two ended in 1945 Allene and Eldon purchased a farm close to Lake Huron in Ashfield Township. They worked together and raised their children, Phyllis and John, there. Allene was proud of her big gardens, delicious baking, her home, barns, many animals and family. She was an active member of Pine River United Church and later Lucknow United Church plus her Women's Institute Groups. She and Eldon retired from farming in the early 1970's and built and moved into a bungalow in Lucknow, Ontario. They became actively involved in a new community making many lasting new friends. In 2005 they moved to Stratford into Hamlet Estates to be closer to family and in 2009 moved into Greenwood Court Nursing Home when health needs dictated. Allene again made many new friends and participated in many nursing home activities. She enjoyed the music, arts and crafts, church services, tea and coffee parties, bowling, gardening, bingo and other games, the wonderful meals, the annual Spring Prom- but especially the fellow residents and wonderful nurses and PSW caregivers. She recommended Greenwood Court as the "best nursing home in the world to be."
