Alyson (Aly) Marika Berrigan, beloved daughter of James and Susan and cherished sister of Amanda of Calgary, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, December 12, 2007 at the tender age of 5 years.
All Aly wanted in her short life with us was to go to school, make friends, and ride the school bus. She accomplished them all. A favourite time of hers was the family trip to Disneyland which put a whole new meaning to the word “Magical.”
Besides her parents and sister, Aly is survived by her grandparents Claudia Berrigan and Geza Szabo; uncles, Tim and Jim; aunts, Sylvia (Dave) and Linda (Phil); and numerous other uncles, aunts, and cousins. She was predeceased by her grandma Marion (Marika) Szabo; great-grandmas and grandpas; and her pet dog Meka.
