We will truly miss Grace. Our family's lives have been enriched by Grace's example of living so beautifully and thoughtfully. I will cherish forever that my daughter, Grace, will have special memories to hold onto for a lifetime of the outstanding woman after whom she is named. We will sadly miss our visits each July, but rejoice for Grace in her now eternal peace and happiness.
Our hearts are also broken with the loss of a dear friend of over 60 years........the namesake of my 11 year old granddaughter, Grace Leonard.......and one of the dearest friends of my parents............Adiel and Oreon Moncrief. We will miss our annual summer visits to John Knox Village and the joy we shared with our beautiful, spitited, generous, intelligent and compassionate friend, GRACE!!!!!! We will be particularly sad next summer as we were planning on celebrating her 100th birthday with her. She lived life to its fullest.................Our warmest condolences to her nieces............With love and heartfelt sympathy.............Ann Moncrief Coy
My wife and I have known Grace for over 50 years, from the time she was "First Lady" at USF, through her last years at John Knox Village. A wonderful, kind, thoughtful and caring individual who will be greatly missed.
USF's first "First Lady" was the guiding light. Rest in peace Grace Allen.
She was a true ambassador for USF, especially during USF's infancy and while her husband John Allen was alive. I enjoyed working with her.
Mrs. Grace Allen was a real lady and will be missed by many friends in our commumity. We at John Knox Village loved her very much.
