She is preceded in death by her parents and her brother, William Parris. She is survived by her loving husband of 63 years, Simeon Allen. Her daughters, Dawn (Brian) Crawford of Montgomery, Donna (Sean) Thompson of Yulee, Florida, her granddaughters, Tori and Brie Thompson, her sister, Brenda Sue Parris of Decatur, her brother Robert Parris of Heflin, and Margaret (Marvin) Mayo and numerous nieces and nephews. Myrtle married Simeon on June 12, 1954. They spent 63 wonderful years together. Myrtle and Simeon raised two daughters who love and admire them more than words can say. They are filled with pride for their beautiful granddaughters. Myrtle was most happy when surrounded by the love and laughter of her family. Mrs. Allen was loved by many children during her 20 years as a classroom and physical education assistant at Cleburne County Elementary School. She enjoyed spending time in her flower gardens as evidenced by the floral display that can be seen when driving by their home in the springtime. The family would like to express heartfelt thanks to those who loved and cared for Myrtle: New Beacon Hospice, Home Helpers, Comfort Keepers and caregivers: Anna Hall, LaTonya Bitegeko, Michelle Stephens, Carol Hopkins, Syble Rollins, Julia Rollins, Carrie Bonner Hugghins, and Barbara Beason.
