Sainte-Marie Cathedral hosted this Thursday, May 5, the funeral of Jeannine Alliot, who died at the age of 87. The opportunity for his son and his relatives to pay tribute to his unfailing commitment to the animal cause.
“You will forever remain in my heart”, “Jeannine was a good person”, “Memories are only good ones”… Whether written in blue or black ink, the handwritten messages are unanimous: Jeannine Alliot will be missed. Verry much. Many of them have come to pay tribute to the former president of the Gers Animal Protection Society, who died recently at the age of 87, on the occasion of her funeral, held yesterday afternoon at the Sainte-Marie cathedral, in Auch.
“The SPA was his baby”
Among them were obviously his son Frédéric and his daughter-in-law Christine. The opportunity for them to proudly recall the unconditional commitment of this figure from Auscita and Gers, devoted for more than thirty years to the animal cause. A commitment materialized by the two medals exhibited during these funerals: that of Knight of the National Order of Merit and the medal of honor for voluntary services, gold level. “She dedicated her life to animals and volunteering. Even if she had taken a step back in 2018 and was only honorary president, she was there practically every week anyway, until she could no longer go, ”testified Frédéric .
Jeannine Alliot obviously leaves a fond memory within an association for which she has worked so much, as evidenced by the basket of flowers deposited yesterday. “The SPA was his baby,” underlined Frédéric. When I lost my brother in an accident in 1977, she started volunteering. The animals were his oxygen. »
To his son, his daughter-in-law and all those close to Jeannine Alliot, La Dépêche du Midi sends its sincere condolences.
