Officiating will be Dr. Chris Currie and Rev. Rhodes Stipp. A reception will follow in the parlor. A private family interment will be held prior to services.

Frances was born on November 20, 1949, to L. Calhoun Allen, Jr. and Mary Miller Allen. She attended Southfield School, C. E.

She served as Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Louisiana and was in the private practice of law. She was a member of Alpha Delta Pi Sorority, the Junior League of Shreveport and the Louisiana Bar Association. Frances was a lifelong member of First Presbyterian Church of Shreveport where she served as a deacon.

Frances was known for her dry wit and wonderful sense of humor. She had a quick mind, a gentle spirit and was a faithful friend. She particularly enjoyed being a part of the First Presbyterian Church where she grew in faith and established many meaningful friendships. Her lifelong friendships, made at Southfield School, were also very special to her.

Frances is survived by her brother, L. Calhoun Allen, III; step-mother, Jacqueline Spell Allen; step-sister, Lisa Schober Smith and her husband, Baker Smith; step-brother, John Schober; and aunt, Jean B. Allen.

The family requests that in lieu of flowers, memorials be made to First Presbyterian Church or to the charity of donor's choice.
