Rose Nordena Allen, 64, died Saturday, May 28, 2005 at Rainier Vista Care Center in Puyallup. She never wanted to reside in a nursing home, but due to her failing health she was forced to for aprox a week and a half before she boarded that heaven bound plane.
Rose was born in Arlington, California. She was the 2nd child born to Alguretta Marjorie Allen, and the firstborn of her father Eric Emmanuel Carlson. Rose is a descendant of the "Tupper" family of Sandwich, MA.
Rose married Robert Leroy Allen in Orange County, California in 1958. Their marriage was blessed with 7 children. Cindy, Eric, Debi, Kathy, Lynda, Dan and Sean.
They lived in various cities throughout CA (Solono County, Orange Co, LA Co) before they moved to Washington in 1967, where they lived in various places throughout King County. Sadly, their marriage failed after 25 years, however they remained close friends after the dust settled.
Rose was very young at heart. She loved life, and those around her. She was a loving, caring, humorous and compassionate person, and she loved to help people. She enjoyed video/computer games, arts & crafts; music (played guitar and piano) horse rides, long drives, and visits with friends and family. She was also quite the card player. She was very creative in everything she did, and recently she had completed writing a children's book. She also Loved the Lord, and many times took the opportunity to talk to others about him.
Prior to her early retirement, Rose worked as a Drug and Alcohol Intake Counselor for adolescents at Lakeside Milam in Burien. She was forced to retire early as she was diagnosed with COPD (Emphysema & Asthma). She spent the past 5+ years of her life with it.
Rose is preceded in death by her husband Robert, and their daughter Kathleen Jane. Her brother Jay also precedes her in death.
