Deborah Ann Allies Obituary
"Having formatted and written many obituaries over the past years as a funeral director for the Chas. E. Davis Funeral Home, I have come to the realization that writing my own is probably in my best interest; in this manner, I will let you know what is really important to me, Deborah Ann Allies. I was born on July 1957 in Montrose, CO, the middle child of seven, to Verdie and Ella (Spor) Allies. Our family moved from Montrose to the San Luis Valley in Southeastern, Colorado, near Monte Vista, when my father began work with the Forest Service. His love for the outdoors and nature has provided me with one of the greatest gifts and I have enjoyed deer and turkey hunting and trout fishing throughout my lifetime. I graduated with honors from Sargent High School, however, when there were only 27 students in your high school class, it was not difficult to graduate with honors. I then attended Adams State College in Alamosa, CO and the San Francisco College of Mortuary Science, where I actually graduated first in my class and received the Mu Sigma Alpha award for academic achievement, a much more difficult challenge than it was in high school. Although I have married; the matches supposedly made in Heaven never lasted and thus I decided that venue is not for me. I have truly enjoyed the company of many wonderful men throughout the years, but also spent some time with toad frogs amongst the princes! Throughout my life, many hobbies have interested me and I have enjoyed broken china mosaic art, scrap-booking, rubber stamping and handmade cards, crafting cigar box purses, counted cross stitch and redoing "junk" (sometimes roadside freebies) into something useful (even if I was the only one who thought it was). I do hope that the friends who have received my gifts over the years have truly enjoyed them and did not just ooh and aahh, so as not to hurt my feelings! One of my greatest challenges and joys has been refurbishing the 1930's cottage I have resided in for many years in Webster. Most of those furnishings coming from flea markets, thrift shops and yard sales for just a few dollars, however, the price of gasoline to find said articles has far outweighed any bargain that was really there! If there was a magazine called "Red Neck Yard Art" I certainly would qualify to be on the cover of the premiere issue. For three decades, I have also had a cow/calf operation and have enjoyed being with and taking care of my "beeners", trying to maintain a profit margin despite government regulations and Mother Nature trying to assure that I did not.
"My parents have both preceded me in death, however, my siblings who I hope cherish some of the memories of the times we have spent together are: Glenda Fox, her husband Rex; Royd Allies, Wayne Allies, Brett Allies and his wife Jamie, Terrill Allies and his wife Janeen and Kevin Allies and his wife MiSun and their collective families. I want to thank oncologist Drs. Patrick Acevedo, Timothy Brandt and Joey Bennett and their staff, who have put up with way more whining, crying, complaining and fussing out of me over the years than they ever deserved in their heroic attempts to grant me many more years of life after being diagnosed with malignant uterine cancer and subsequent incurable metastatic bone cancer in 2012. I also want to thank my employers, Charles E. Davis, Lou Ellen Davis and my co-workers through the years at the Chas. E. Davis Funeral Home, for giving me the opportunity to daily make a difference in the lives of others at the time of their greatest need, as a funeral director, and who have supported me emotionally through this difficult walk as well as the many friends who have reached out to me, touched my life, given me their love, smiles and memories, especially my girlfriends VonCille Bruce and Linda Kerr and my devoted companion Don Saylor and dear friend Tom Parks. And thank you to Baptist minister, Pastor Greg Kell and Catholic Priest, Fr. Charles Leke who have constantly and valiantly tried to instill in me the need to get right towards Heaven, instead of the other direction where I will no doubt reside with a number of my preceded in death, good friends. Live each day as if it were your last as it truly could be.
"Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up and totally worn out, with a piece of chocolate in one hand, a glass of Chardonnay in the other and loudly proclaiming, DAMN, WHAT A RIDE!"
Deborah Ann Allies, 58 of Webster, died Friday, Nov. 21, 2015 in Lecanto under the care of Hospice of Citrus & The Nature Coast. Deborah's life will be remembered and celebrated on Friday, December 4, 2015 at 3:00 p.m. from the Chas. E. Davis Funeral Home in Inverness.
