Mary "Regis" Allen Obituary
Mary "Regis" Allen

AGE: 80 • Sarasota

Mary "Regis" Allen died at home surrounded by family on June 30 in Sarasota, Florida. She was 80 years old.

Regis was born in Scranton, Pennsylvania, on April 9, 1937, to the late Thomas Henry Allen and the late Anne Elizabeth (Gibbons) Allen. She was the fourth of ten children and loved to help care for her younger siblings. When she married William A. Scheller, also of Scranton, in 1958, she brought the same caring nature into their 24-year marriage and devoted herself to raising their four children in Brick, New Jersey.

Regis worked until her retirement as a hair stylist. She earned an Alcohol and Drug Counseling certificate from Rutgers University as part of her longtime passion for helping others. If music was playing, especially if it was being performed by her children, she could be found joyfully singing and dancing along with it.

Regis is survived by her children Brian Scheller; Jeffrey Scheller and his wife Christine; Anne "Sudie" Scheller; and Wayne Scheller and his wife Ina. She also leaves nine grandchildren, three great grandchildren, and 4 siblings. A celebration of life service will be held at 4pm on July 16 at All Saints Episcopal Church in Lakewood, New Jersey.
