ALISON SCOTT Alison Leslie Scott, 41, of Saskatoon, passed away peacefully on November 14, 2008. Alison grew up in Saskatoon and Winnipeg. She attended Ryerson University in Toronto on her way to her first career in costume for stage and film. Through the 1990s she worked with the National Theatre in London, with Cirque du Soleil in Montreal, and on film productions and the television series Shirley Holmes in Winnipeg. After marrying her beloved Terry and renovating their house and garden in Allan, Saskatchewan, with him, Alison decided to pursue a second career in landscape design. She completed a Master’s Degree in Landscape Architecture at the University of Manitoba in 2007, and enjoyed credit for a number of award-winning designs. Sustaining her unique spirit throughout her compassionate, creative life has been the love of her family and friends, and especially the magic of her daughter, Camille. Alison is survived by her husband Terry Jordan and her daughter Camille, as well as her mother Jocelyne, brothers David (Laurel) and Wilder, sisters Anais (Steve) and Karen, and three nieces and one nephew. Alison is predeceased by her father, Dr. Christopher R. Scott (2007). Alison’s family would like to express sincere thanks to the staff at Saskatoon’s Royal University Hospital Oncology ward and Cancer Centre, and at St. Paul’s Hospital Palliative Care Unit. In lieu of flowers, donations are welcome to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada. Details of Memorial Services will be published in this paper next Saturday, November 22, 2008.
