Obituary from the Craig Daily Press:
Carol Ann Allen Craig
Carol Ann Allen
Carol Ann Allen, of Craig, died Sunday, Jan. 22, 2012, at Doak Walker Care Center from a courageous battle with breast cancer. She was 69.
Carol was born March 16, 1942, in Kremmling to Earl and Neava Johnson in the back of their home and business, The BlueBird Café.
Carol was the youngest of three children. She was the apple of her parents' eye, yet they were quick to learn she had her own agenda.
Pink frill and tea parties were her mother's dream, which was vetoed for a more popular agenda of chaps, hat and her six shooters, baseball, and fishing.
She attended West Grand School District, graduating in 1960. During her senior year, she met and married Earnest Allen, of McCoy. Not long after, she welcomed Leni Lorraine Allen to the family.
A second child was later to join, Daniel Earnest Allen.
Carol was always outdoorsy, loving what the next bend in the road had to offer. She enjoyed her grandchildren, all of whom knew "Grandma's Rules," yard, photography, football and a variety of artwork, but mostly painting.
She met and enjoyed many friends through her painting classes and artwork exhibits.
Carol was an amazing woman, wife, mother, sister, grandmother, great-grandmother, and most of all, a true friend to those who knew her.
Carol woke up every morning with a glimmer in her eye and a smile on her face saying, "What does God have for me today?"
Carol was preceded in death by her parents, and sister Dana Uncapher, of Kremmling.
She is survived by her brother, Edwin Johnson, of Grand Junction; husband Earnest; daughter Leni Allen, of Craig; son Dan (Susann) Allen, of Phippsburg; grandchildren Tara (Ky) Cox, of Phippsburg, Brandon Allen, of Steamboat Springs, and Austin and Autumn Eaby, of Loveland; and her great-grand daughter Alyvia Cox.
She leaves this for us, called "I Mortality," by Mary Frye.
Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on the snow,
I am the sunlight on reopened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awake in the mornings, hush.
I am the swift up flying rush of quiet birds in circling flight
I am the soft star shine at night
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I did not die.
A service will be at 11 a.m. today, Friday, Jan. 27, 2012, at Yampa Bible Church in Yampa, with graveside services at Yampa Cemetery.
A luncheon will follow after at the Yampa Ladies Aid Hall.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to Shaw Cancer Center/Jack's Place in Edwards.
