Mrs. Nancy Allen.
Mrs. Nancy Allen died at the
home of her daughter, Mrs. J.
J. Rogers, here Wednesday af
ternoon at the advanced age of
80 years.

transition of a spirit that had
longed to be freed from its hu

enjoyment of that life beyond
promised to the faithful, the be
ginning of eternal life, free from
human infirmities, sorrows and
afflictions. It had been the
daily prayer of the deceased that
the summons of the Master come
at His pleasure, and it was a
sweet relief when the frail body
no longer held the spirit that
gave it life.
Mrs. Allen was the widow of
the late Nat Allen, who preceded
her to the grave 15 years ago.
She was the mother of a large
family, a number of children
surviving her: Mrs Long, Mrs.
J. J. Rogers, Mrs. Holditch, Mrs.
iSory.of Arkansas: J. H-. and

deeply pious woman and follow
ed closely the teachings of the
i Master. She was a member of

her health permitted it she at
tended all the services of her
church. Pier life was given to
religious thought and her good
works will remain a monument
