Photo IRMA ALLEN JERSEYVILLE — Irma L. (Stith) Allen, 95, died at 12:55 p.m., Wednesday, May 20, 2015, in the emergency room at Jersey Community Hospital in Jerseyville. She was born in LaBelle, Mo., on June 8, 1919, the only child born of the late Floy and Mabel P. (Piner) Stith. Irma graduated from Lewiston (Mo.) High School in 1937, and began her career in education that fall in a one-room school house while going to college. She received her BS in Education from Culver-Stockton College in 1942, and MS in Education from Washington University in 1951. She later completed an advanced certificate from the University of Illinois in 1963. After teaching in northeastern Missouri for several years, she moved to Illinois where she began teaching in Virginia and Manchester, before accepting a position as an English instructor for Jersey Township High School, where she taught from 1946-1948. The majority of her teaching career was spent at Alton Senior High School where she taught English, and enjoyed many years in the counseling department, retiring in 1976.

Irma was a faithful member of the St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church in Jerseyville, and served on the board of the Easter Seal Society of Southwestern Illinois. She was an active member of the Jersey County Historical Society, and the relocation of the Lone Star School was a labor of love, and an accomplishment she was very proud of. She loved listening to Dixieland Jazz, and when able, she never missed the Juvae Jass Societies festival in Decatur. She even had her favorite St. Louis Riverman perform at her 90th birthday party. In her later years, she spent every waking moment, cross stitching. It was her goal to complete a quilt or two every year for the Jersey County Historical Society quilt raffle. She loved her St. Louis Cardinals, and was a proud season ticket holder for over 30 years. Irma had a wonderful life, full of happiness and accomplishments, with many good friends along the way. She will truly be missed.
