Ina Mae was born in Jarrell, Texas, to the late Joe H. and Mattie Elizabeth (Pickens) Hardin. She lived most of her adult life in the McGregor and Oglesby area. On Aug. 13, 1938, she married James Rayford Allen in Gatesville, Texas. Their marriage was said to have been a loving relationship as she was always willing and happy to give of her time and resources to help her family. As a descendant of the Hardin and Pickens families that moved from Tennessee to Texas in the 1830's, she inherited an attitude of self-sufficiency and independence. Ina Mae was reared during the depression which fostered a spirit of hard work, conservation of resources and a strong sense of social and financial responsibility.

Ina Mae was a member of College Avenue Baptist Church in McGregor. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who enjoyed crochet, embroidery, cooking and traveling, especially for and with her family.

She was preceded in death by James, her husband of 62 years, on Feb. 22, 2001; an infant brother; an infant grandson; a niece, Cathy Brown; and her brother-in-law, Lee Brown.

Survivors include her son, Jimmy Allen and wife, Mary, of Baton Rouge, La.; daughter, Judy Chaudoin and husband, Frank, of McGregor; grandchildren, Aubrey Chaudoin and wife, Michelle, Tate Chaudoin, Jeffrey Allen and Amy Allen; great-grandchildren, Hunter Chaudoin, Brooke Chaudoin, Bailey Allen and Alexa LaPlace; twin sister, Iva Jane Brown, of Mound; nieces, Belva Brown Clark and Betty Brown Smith along with their families; many other family members and numerous friends.
