Crystal Delores Allen-Horne Obituary
Crystal Delores Allen-Horne was born in Easton, Md., September 15, 1963. She graduated from Dover High School in 1981. She attended Delaware State College, Wilmington University, and the University of Maryland: College Park.

Crystal was employed for 10 years at the Dover Housing Authority and left to take a position with the National Council on Agricultural Labor and Research Inc. She was currently employed with People's Place for 23 years and was the program director of their New Start program, as well as the Whatcoat Social Services. She was especially proud to be chosen as Employee of the Year in 2000. Her proudest moment was when she became the mother of her child, Chalay Horne. Her whole world revolved around her daughter, who was her pride and joy.

Crystal was a member of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Inc., and she was a proud member of Calvary Baptist Church. Crystal has always been a natural helper, and she loved working with children.

She was preceded in death by her mother, Charlotte M. Allen, and her father, Howard G. Allen. She leaves behind her precious daughter, Chalay Marie Horne of Delaware; her sister, Patricia R. Allen of Delaware; her sister, Truphenia Potter of Maryland; and a whole host of aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

A celebration of life will be held Saturday, May 5, 2018 at Calvary Baptist Church, 410 Fulton St. Dover, beginning at noon with visitation one hour prior to the service.
