Allen, Patricia C.  
Patricia C. Allen Patricia Chase Allen, 73, who touched the lives of the many people she befriended and the many children whom she taught, took her last breath on Sunday, August 23, 2015. She had been treated for chronic lymphocytic leukemia since 2009. Born on April 30, 1943 to Raymond and Mary Downing Chase in Randolph, VT, Pat was the sixth child of seven. A seventh generation Vermonter, she grew up on her family's farm in Randolph Center. She graduated from Braintree/Randolph High School, received her teaching degree from Castleton State College, and two Master's degrees from the University of Vermont. She was married to Michel Allen from 1968 to 1984. Having no children of her own, she provided temporary foster care to children. However, it was the hundreds of students who passed through her classroom who benefited from the patience, guidance, kindness and love of learning that Pat bestowed upon them. She also encouraged her many nieces and nephews in their educational endeavors. Retiring in 1993 from a 30-year elementary school teaching career in Colchester, VT, Pat continued to engage in community education through the UVM Extension Migrant Worker Program and as a guide at the Shelburne Museum. A voracious consumer of historical material, Pat was passionate in sharing her knowledge about the lives of Abraham Lincoln, Eleanor Roosevelt, Alice Paul, and John F. Kennedy. Always looking for new ways to expand her knowledge, practice new skills, meet new people, and make the world a better place, Pat loved to travel with friends. During the summers, she studied in the Hawaiian Islands, worked in the National Park system during the summer, and visited a long time pen pal in Norway on one of several trips overseas. Post retirement, she enjoyed travel adventures with friends. Only the lush, green hills of Ireland came close to the beauty she experienced in her home state of Vermont. Ever seeking enriching experiences, Pat was co-owner of Emma's Restaurant in Jericho, VT. She joined a writers' group and worked on her memoir, Hands in the Earth, Lessons From My Father, which motivated her to establish a small business- Book in Hand Publishers, Inc. Her volunteer work ranged from sitting on court diversion panels to checking in voters at the polls on Election Day. A Celtics fan, she followed the basketball careers of her favorite players. As a result of Pat's daily walks, she became an amateur birder. An active member of the Unitarian Universalist Society of Burlington, VT, Pat served on multiple committees and ultimately as President of the Board. She was a founding member of the Legacy Society at the UU. Participating in a variety of social justice activities throughout the years, she promoted equality for all. Pat was the one to greet everyone as she strolled down Church Street or mingled at a campaign rally or community meeting. Along the way, Pat met many people who became her friends. She knew what friendship meant. She was generous with her time and with her money. She was kind to everyone. And what a sense of humor! It was her dry Vermont wit that everyone loved about her. Never was there a more encouraging friend who celebrated the joys and offered support during times of struggle. Parents, Raymond E. and Mary Downing Chase, and brothers Clarence, Raymond and Eugene predeceased Pat. Pat will be greatly missed by sisters: Harriet Chase, Randolph, VT, Carolyn Tandy, and her husband, Winfield Tandy, Green Valley, AZ, and Sandra Chase, Bullhead City, AZ; several nieces and nephews, and many, many friends. A Memorial Service will be held at the First Unitarian Universalist Society of Burlington Vermont, Saturday, August 29, 2015 at 2:00 PM. A private internment will be conducted. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Castleton University, Alumni Office, 62 Alumni Dr. Castleton, VT 05735 (Memo: Patricia Chase Allen Scholarship Fund) or online at www.ca stletonedu/donate.
