Allen had a very special companion, a precious poodle named Missy, who gave Allen much pleasure the last two years he suffered with Alzheimer's.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday at 11 a.m. at St. Henry Catholic Church with Father Brian Wilk officiating. Family burial will be in St. Henry Cemetery.


Family and friends may call Saturday from 9 to 11 a.m. at the church.


In lieu of flowers, memorials to Rainbow Hospice, Jefferson County Humane Society or the Alzheimer's Association would be appreciated.

Many thanks to all the wonderful girls from Country Nurses in Jefferson for their care of Allen. Together, we all learned a lot about Alzheimer's, I couldn't have done it without you.
