Beth was born in Bonyhad the oldest daughter of Heinrich Allinger (1888-1979) and his 1st wife Elisabeth Buchert (1889-1921). She came to Canada with her family in 1925, and grew up in Regina, SK. In 1945 she went to India as a young missionary with Worldwide Evangelization for Christ (WEC), and was honored to work with the Nepali people in Shillong for 33 years. In 1978 she retired and came home to Vancouver to care for her father until his death a year later. During these years Beth was a faithful member of Tenth Avenue Alliance Church. She enjoyed travel, and as a missionary had opportunity to visit many churches all over the globe. In 1981 she went back to India for two years to work in the Shining Hospital in Pokhara, Nepal, and in 1990 for a three month term in Kathmandu, Nepal, to fill in for the director of the Nepal Leprosy Trust. In 1992 she had opportunity to visit the Nepali Christian Fellowship (NCF), the church she helped to establish in Shillong, to celebrate their 45th anniversary, and again in 1998 for their 50th. In 2007, at the age of 89, she was able to make one last visit to see how the church had grown and was thriving. She later moved to the Evergreen Baptist Manor Home, and finally to the Evergreen Terraces where she passed away peacefully at 98. Predeceased by her parents, two step-mothers, and four brothers, she is lovingly mourned by her two sisters, Kay Dirks of West Kelowna, and Lydia Holmlund of White Rock, and many nieces and nephews.
