Elgene Towery Allen was laid to rest Thursday, August 15 in Rockport Masonic Cemetery with Eastern Star graveside rites. She passed away August 11, 2002 in the Lakeview Christian Nursing Home, Carlsbad, New Mexico.

Elgene is survived by one son, Robert Perry of Dallas, Texas, one brother, Roland Kenneth Towery of Austin and Floydada, and one sister, Irene, of Carlsbad, New Mexico. She is also survived by two granddaughters, Stephanie Milam of Houston and Robin Perry of Dallas, and three great-grandchildren. She is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by six brothers and two husbands, Elgin Perry of Houston, whom she married in 1940, and W.B. Allen of Rockport, whom she married in 1978.

She was born July 20, 1915, in Monroe County, Mississippi, to Wiley Azof Towery (1875-1964) and Lonie Cowart Towery (1884-1974) and grew up in Raymondville, Texas, where she attended school, graduating from Raymondville High School there.

Elgene worked for many years as secretary-bookkeeper and real estate broker in Houston. She was very active in the Eastern Star throughout her adult years. In brief remarks at her funeral, her brother noted that "One did not have to be around Elgene long to realize she had two great loves in life. That was her family and the Eastern Star."
