Evelyn Howe Allen is with Jesus today, as she was yesterday. She’s walked with Him her whole life and is Home now, in that peaceful place. (Quoted from Jack Weber, her grandson) She passed away November 28, 2021.

For years, she drove Medicab taking people to doctor appointments when they had no way to travel there themselves. She and Johnnie square danced for years and taught round dance classes.
