Juliet Meighan Alleyne, 78, of Bowmanville, Ontario, passed away on September 29, 2021, at Etobicoke General Hospital of complications following a stroke she suffered in Guyana in May of 2021. Juliet was born on June 3, 1943, in Campbellville, Guyana, to parents Ita Albertha and James Alleyne. She attended St. Roses High School and graduated from the University of Guyana with a degree in Business Administration. She also graduated from Pitman Commercial Institute in Guyana. Juliet was a globe trotter. While living in Guyana she worked at the following places: the Forestry Department in Georgetown, the Office of the Prime Minister of Guyana as Special Political Assistant, Guyana Airways as Corporation Secretary and briefly served in the Guyana National Service. Juliet travelled to London, England in 1964 and worked as a Legal Secretary. In 1970, she returned to Guyana, and left again in 1990 to live in Canada. She retired there from the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board where she held the position of Administrative Assistant. Juliet also lived in Bermuda for a brief time after retirement and had spent much of her time before her passing in her beloved hometown of Georgetown, Guyana. Juliet was an avid reader, loved travelling and gourmet cooking and even had her own restaurant for a while.
