Ann Allred Obituary
Allred, Ann McClelland 05/30/1938 ~ 05/20/2013 In Loving Memory DEL MAR -- Ann McClelland Allred of Del Mar, CA, passed away on May 20th at the age of 75, after a valiant and courageous battle against an aggressive form of ALS. She was a beautiful, caring, giving, and kind-hearted woman who will be greatly missed. Ann's loving family, led by her husband of 56 years, Doug, her five children and their spouses, Doug Jr. and Margie, David and Susan, Richard and Amy, Linda and John Lynch, John and Kirsten, and 14 Grandchildren, Dougie, Casey, Lexi, Jack, Ruby, Jake, Lindsay, Lilly, Leah, Beau, Ila, Shay, Linna, and Judd were able to gather around Ann and provide comfort. Ann was born in Pasadena, California where she attended grade school and developed a great love for the outdoors and a positive "get it done" attitude. Then she relocated with her family to Burlingame near San Francisco and attended Burlingame High for a short time, before moving to Phoenix, Arizona where she graduated from West Phoenix High school. She was an accomplished athlete, particularly excelled at competitive swimming. She attended the University of Arizona, where as a freshman she met an Arizona football player and senior business school student, Doug Allred. After Doug graduated from the Navy Reserve Officer Candidate School in Newport Rhode Island, they married on April 22nd, 1957 and moved to Coronado, where Doug became a UDT officer in Team 11, which now is SEAL Team 5. While in Coronado, both Doug and Ann developed a great love of the San Diego area. As their young family began to grow, Doug and Ann decided to remain in San Diego while Doug entered the commercial real estate business. Ann was always supporting Doug in his efforts and together they formed the Douglas Allred Company, one of San Diego's and Arizona's most illustrious real estate development companies. They raised a beautiful family and proudly watched all five children graduate from college, four from USC and one from Cal Poly San Louis Obispo. Ann and Doug always attended their children's athletic events including football, tennis, track and field, wrestling, baseball, and basketball at Torrey Pines High School, USC, Cal Lutheran and in the NFL. In more recent years, she was a regular at her 14 grandchildren's tennis matches, lacrosse games, soccer games, or football games. Ann Allred was the quintessential, wife, mother, and grandmother. Ann was a great patriot and supporter of our country and its Military. Ann and Doug's philanthropy has been extensive and included Torrey Pines High School, USC, University of Arizona, the Hall of Champions, Navy Special Warfare Family Foundation, Junior League, Scripps Hospital Polster Cancer Center, The John Lynch and John Allred Golf Classic, the Nativity Catholic Church, and the San Dieguito Boys and Girls Club including the Douglas Allred Branch. Ann was preceded in death by her parents, Elbert and Norma McClelland. She is survived by her husband, Doug Allred; her brother, Don McClelland and his wife Edna; her five children and their spouses; and her 14 loving grandchildren. Ann will be buried at a private gravesite service in Santa Barbara, California. A Memorial Mass and celebration of Ann's life will be held at 11:00 AM on her birthday, May 30, 2013 at the Church of the Nativity, 6309 El Apajo Road, Rancho Santa Fe, CA. 92067. A private reception will follow. In lieu of flowers, the Allred Family would appreciate donations in Ann's name to any of the philanthropies previously mentioned and dear to her heart.
