ELKHART Elsie M. Allen, 86, passed away peacefully Wednesday, Dec. 12, 2012.

Born March 6, 1926, she was the daughter of the late Fred and Jessie (Jones) Lemons. She was also preceded in death by her first husband, Albert Baltimore; second husband, Harold Allen; granddaughter Tammy; and great-granddaughter Salina.

Elsie is survived by two children, Gene (Sandy) Lemons of Manchester, Tenn., and Sylvia (Warren) Bolton of Niles, Mich.; four grandchildren, Connie (Jeff) Chupp of Edwardsburg, Mich., and Tracy (Lisa), Shawn and Danny Lemons, all of Manchester; and two sisters, Helen Swann of Tennessee and Ellen (Willis) Spry of Elkhart. She is also survived by 17 great-grandchildren and eight great-great-grandchildren.

Elsie loved the Lord and her family more than anything. She had a heart of gold and even though she didn't have much money, she'd give everything she could to make others happy.

She enjoyed dancing and was a member of American Legion, where she will be remembered for dancing up a storm.

Funeral services will be at noon Monday, Dec. 17, 2012, at McGann Hay, Forest G. Hay Chapel, 435 S. Ironwood Drive, South Bend, with visitation one hour prior.
