Our beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother passed away peacefully at her home on September 13, 2008. She resided at 2018 West Champagne Circle (5280 South) in Taylorsville, Utah at the time of her death.

Vera was born December 29, 1924 to Earl and Emily Kelsey in Shelley, Idaho. She was married to Louis Max Allen on August 16, 1946 in Pocatello, Idaho. They moved to Utah to raise their family in 1953. Max preceded her in death in 1972. Vera started her working career right out of high school working for the railroad then to California during World War II in an airplane factory. She continued as a valuable employee for several Utah companies until retiring from Motor Cargo at the age of 65. She was an avid reader who especially enjoyed mysteries. Vera was a kind and thoughtful person who loved and was loved by her family who she always put ahead of her own needs and wants. She will be greatly missed.
