NANCY B ALLEN Nancy B Allen left us to be with her lifetime friend and companion Tom on February 20, 2017 surrounded by her children. Nancy, born on February 28, 1934 in Erlanger, Kentucky to Ben and Margaret Browning and was one of nine children. Nancy was preceded in death by her husband Tom, her mother and father and all her siblings. Nancy was a longtime resident of Richland, Washington and enjoyed life to the fullest. After a long career as an elementary school secretary, she and Tom enjoyed a fun filled retirement with their recreational vehicles, eventually establishing a snowbird home in Yuma, Arizona. This was a highlight of her life where she had many friends and enjoyed her hobbies of painting, dancing and of course "party time". Nancy and Tom had two children Scott and Julie and five grandchildren. The family spent many vacations together every summer at Priest Lake boating and swimming. Nana, as many of us called her always had special treats and drinks for everyone who came to her camp. When each grandchild successfully mastered water skiing, Nana had a special prize to celebrate their achievement. Nana also loved fishing and often bragged about catching the most and biggest fish, we she often did! She most recently has been living in Longview, WA to be near her daughter Julie where she made many friends at the Monticello Park Senior Living. Nancy was recognized with an Excellent Artist Award in January of this year. She loved painting, sewing, and playing bingo. But most of all, Nancy loved winning at the casinos, which she often did! Nana will be greatly missed by her family, Scott and Abby, Julie and Jon, grandchildren Jeremy (Laila), Carly (Joe), Darcy, Russell and Eileen (Jon), and great grandchildren, Antony, Ameila, Mayzee and Hadley and many, many friends. May you rest in peace Nana and dance forever in the stars!
