Clara and Ralph Allen were such important active members in the Congregational Church of Naugatuck. I had lost track of their whereabouts since they left Naugatuck. They had many friends in Naugatuck - they will both be remembered fondly. My sympathy and prayers go out to the families that held them close to their hearts.

Clara was an AAUW friend that I had the pleasure of knowing after I moved to NC.
