Allaine M. (Williams) Abe
December 22, 2017
PEABODY - Mrs. Allaine M. (Williams) Abe, 82, beloved wife of the late Harold K. Abe, passed away on Friday, December 22, 2017 at Brooksby Village in Peabody, MA.
Born in Colorado Springs, CO, she was the daughter of the late Allan and Betty D. (Morrison) Williams. Allaine graduated from W. J. Palmer High School in Colorado Springs and earned her bachelor's degree in Education at the University of Colorado at Boulder.
Allaine had been employed as a special education teacher at Coleytown Middle School in Westport, CT for many years. As a lifelong learner and compassionate teacher, Allaine found great joy in providing knowledge and guidance to her many students.
A loving wife, mother, grandmother, and aunt, Allaine was most dedicated to her family. She adored her grandchildren and was truly proud of their accomplishments. A 13-year resident of Brooksby Village in Peabody, Allaine enjoyed her many abiding friendships. Throughout her life, Allaine called many places home, including Japan, Hong Kong, and Paris. She fearlessly traveled the globe-often with several children and pets in tow-and could always enliven the party with a story from one of her adventures. An avid reader and quilter, she enjoyed creating belongings for her family and friends. A true friend to rely on, she will be deeply missed by all whose lives she touched.
Allaine is survived by her sons and daughters-in-law: George and Bettina Abe of Acton, MA; Robert Abe and Christine Osterwalder of Volcano, HI; David and Diane Abe of Lexington, MA; and Jonathan and Tatum Abe of Belmont, MA; her dear grandchildren: Thomas, Magdalen, Katherine, Grace, Sawyer, and Harper Abe; her sister, Judy W. Frei of Albuquerque, NM; her brother, Robert M. Williams of Denver, CO; her brothers-in-law: John Chin, Kikuo Tsue, and John Bauer; her sisters-in-law: Nancy Chapman, Ethel Tsue, Janet Chin, Nancy Bauer, and Hazel Abe; her nieces: Shelley Tom, Karen Williams, and Anne Sanchez; and her nephews: David Williams, Jason and Bryan Frei, Vernard Hodges, and Steve, Darryl, and Gary Tsue. She was the sister of the late Allan H. Williams.
