Allene, a 13-year-old sixth grade student, was a victim of the New London School explosion that claimed the lives of more than 295 people, including her older sister Lillian. A young life taken far too soon. The sisters were buried beside each other.
The tragedy prompted the Texas Legislature to mandate that thiols (mercaptans) be added to natural gas to give the gas a strong odor, making leaks quickly detectable. The practice quickly spread worldwide.
