Obituary Condolences

FRANCES E. ALLMON Frances Marguerite Ellis-Allmon was born on March 25, 1916 in Durham, Kansas, to Elmer E. Ellis and Elsie Eichenour Ellis. She died peacefully on November 9, 2008 in Riverside, California at the age of 92. She grew up in Hutchinson, Kansas, graduating from Hutchinson High School, Class of 1934. During WWII she met Lorne L. Allmon, a military officer, and they were married on March 12, 1944. She supported the war effort by working for the U.S. Postal Service. After the war they traveled to various duty stations around the U.S., raised a family and finally settled permanently in Riverside in 1962. Her two great passions, besides her family, were researching the family's genealogy and her sorority, Delta Theta Chi. She was a member of that organization for over 60 years and was instrumental in keeping Riverside's Sigma Chapter going, following its formation in 1975. Her three children, Robert L. Allmon of Hemet, Katherine F. Allmon of Riverside and Marsha Allmon Jones of Pearl, Mississippi, along with daughter-in-law, Christine Allmon; son-in-law, James A. Jones; two grandchildren and four great-grandchildren, survive her. Graveside Service and Interment will be at Riverside National Cemetery, where she will join her husband, who preceded her in death in 1999, Mon., Nov. 17, 2008 at 10;15am, using Assembly Area #2.
