Edythe Kahlson Allen, 60, beloved wife of Ben Allen, died peacefully on Thanksgiving at Hospice of Cincinnati of breast cancer
. Her sister Elsa Kahlson was at her side. Edy is also survived by her brother Nils (Roz Kade) and nephew Bengt Kahlson. Edy is predeceased by her parents, Dorothy and Erik Kahlson. Edy was quick with a joke, story or helping hand. Clifton has lost a unique thread in its fabric. Many will miss her wit but Heaven will be a livelier place with her presence. In lieu of flowers, donations are welcome to the Edythe Kahlson Allen Memorial Fund for her medical expenses at any US Bank location or Hospice of Cincinnati. Service will be held at the Clifton Cultural Arts Center, 2 PM, January 5, 2013.
