Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Sep. 30, 1854
Georgia, USA
Death: Apr. 22, 1912

Died, at the residence of her brother-in-law, Mr. M. R. Allen, Monday morning, Mrs. Georgia Amanda Allen, widow of the late Hon. Chas. A. Allen, after a lingering illness of several months' duration.

The funeral took place Tuesday morning at 10 o'clock at the Masonic cemetery, Reverends T. G. Gibbons and I Sellers performing the burial service.

The pall bearers were: Honorary--J. Little, T. S. Doggett, T. A. Hill, J. W. Holt, W. S. Shaver and J. C. Kindred; active---C. F. Laas, Ernst Strunk, H. Brasher, Geo. Herder, Sr., Wm. Allen and R. H. McCormick.

Mrs. Allen was born Sept. 30, 1854, at Talberton, Talberton Co., Ga., and died April 22, 1912. She was married to the late Hon. Chas. A. Allen on Jan. 11, 1881. for many years after that event she resided with her late husband at their hospitable home at Shimek, coming to this city after the death of her husband to make her home with his brother, M. R. Allen.

Mrs. Allen was a noble, good woman, the soul of hospitality, as those who visited her home can amply testify. The best of friend and neighbor, possessing a genial disposition which always made her look upon the bright side of life; generous to a fault, always interested in those about her and seeking to help them in every way possible, here death has caused an aching void in the hearts of a large circle of friends, who knew and loved her for her many admirable traits of head and heart.

The funeral was largely attended by towns people and those from a distance, and the floral offerings literally hid the grave from sight. Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to the bereaved family.
