After fulfilling his duties they returned to Gadsden and together opened Fred Allen Florist which they owned and operated for 13 years. They relocated, along with their three daughters, to Corpus Christi Texas in 1962.

Helen attended Texas A&I University graduating summa cum laude. After graduation she worked as an elementary school teacher for Corpus Christi Christian School and for CCISD for 22 years before retiring in 1998.
