Luella (Lue) Hatch Allen, 74, of Donnelly, Idaho, passed away in McCall, Idaho on June 1, 2012 after a short illness.
Lue was born at home in Kuna, Idaho February 1, 1938 to Ira and Ida Hatch. She grew up on the family farm with her two brothers and seven sisters. She often told stories of having to share a room with all of her sisters. It was not only the "girls" room, but the family sitting room. She graduated from Kuna High School in 1956.
She continued on to cosmetology school and worked at several places in the Treasure Valley, but really put her expertise to work by doing perms, haircuts, and manicures for her mother, sisters and friends at home.
Lue married Eric G. Henry in 1963 and they later divorced. She met and married Bert L. Allen in 1971. Their honeymoon was a hunting trip in the Idaho Mountains in a canvas tent. Together they loved to hunt, fish, camp and snowmobile, enjoying the opportunities to get out of Boise on the weekends.
They began to build their dream home in Donnelly, Idaho shortly after they were married. It was always a work in progress and they were able to enjoy many years in Donnelly before Bert's passing in 2008. Lue loved living "on the mountain" and it was difficult to pry her away. She enjoyed doing her puzzle books and reading in her little cabin in the woods. She lived a simple life and was content with being a homebody.
Lue was preceded in death by her husband, Bert, her parents, two brothers, five sisters, and an infant daughter Leslie Henry.
She is survived by her two daughters, Shanon Henry, of Kuna and Lisa Allen, of Donnelly, her sisters, Kathleen Nakano (Wally), of Meridian, and LaRene O'Dell (Gary), of Kuna, and her grandsons, Brandon Prince, of Oceanside, CA, and Baker Prince, of Kuna. Lue is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
The family would like to thank; Bill and Linda Eddy who have been wonderful neighbors, Bonnie, Linda, and anyone who came to lunch on Wednesdays, Stella who did Lue's hair every week for the last twelve years, and all of Lue's friends that loved her. Also, a special thanks to the staff at the McCall hospital and the Valley County EMT's, your caring support and encouragement was wonderful.
A viewing will be held on Wednesday, June 6th at 11:00 a.m. at the Relyea Funeral Chapel in Boise with a graveside service and blessing by her nephew Chris Vaughn at the Kuna Cemetery at 1 p.m. A gathering for her friends and neighbors in Donnelly will be announced at a later time.
