I was born on July 29, 1949, the eldest daughter of Alcide Allain and Edith Arsenault. I grew up in the Lewisville area, attended the local french school and finished my education at Harrison Trimble High School graduating in 1967. I met my future husband while attending Harrison Trimble High and we were married on August 1, 1970 in Lewisville, New Brunswick. The first year after our wedding, we lived in Scarborough, Ontario then we moved to St. John, New Brunswick where we lived for 1 1/2 years. My husband was then transferred to Dartmouth, Nova Scotia where we lived for the next thirteen years. Our two children, Kelly and Shawn, were both born in Halifax at the Grace Maternity Hospital. In 1984, we once again moved relocating to Riverview, New Brunswick where we still reside. Our children have since grown up, married and have children of their own. Kelly, her husband David and two children live in Hillsborough while Shawn, his wife Laura with their three children live in Braeside, Ontario.
