Birth: Nov. 1, 1889
Hancock County
West Virginia, USA
Death: Jun. 1, 1978
Hancock County
West Virginia, USA

She worked for the Dale K. Allison Insurance Agency on Carolina Ave., Chester, WV, until she was in her 80s. Dale was her son.

From 1920 until 1951, she lived at 102 Railroad Street in Chester, WV. From 1951 until her death in 1978, she lived at 611 6th Street in Chester.

She told me at one time that she wasn't born on 01 November, but I don't remember what the real date was. Her birth record says 30 Nov, but she never celebrated her birthday on any other day but 01 November.

Family graveside services will be held Saturday at 10:30 AM at Shadow Lawn Memory Gardens in Newell for Mrs. Alice J. Allison, 88, of 611 6th St., Chester.
The rites will be conducted by Dr. George Espy of the Westminster United Presbyterian Church of which she was a member.

Mrs. Allison died Thursday at 12:15 PM at the Fox Nursing Home in Chester after a four month illness.

A lifelong area resident, Mrs. Allison was born Nov. 1, 1889, in Congo, near Newell, a daughter of Thomas E. [sic] Kessel and Mary Martin Kessel.
She was retired in 1974 from the office of her son, Dale K. Allison Insurance Agency in Chester, where she worked as a bookkeeper.

Besides her son, Dale, survivors include another son, Bryon [sic] B. Allison of Chester, a daughter, Mrs. John H. (Mary) Remley of Indianapolis, Ind., five grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

There will be no calling hours.
The Arner Funeral Chapel in Chester is in charge of arrangements. The family requests that memorial tributes take the form of contributions to the Westminster United Presbyterian Church.
