     She was born in Pierre, S.D., Aug. 10, 1892.  The family moved on her birthday in 1900 to Oregon and then to Nampa in 1901. Her father, Ira Miller, built a large house on Sixth Street North and she lived there with her parents, seven sisters and one brother.  Her father helped to build the Dewey Palace Hotel.  Later he traded the house for a farm in the Franklin District, north of Nampa, and that is where she met Clarence Allen.  They were married in 1915 and lived in a house that Clarence built in the Franklin District near the Boise River.  They farmed there until 1928 when they moved to their farm on 12th Avenue Road south of Nampa.
     The couple celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary in January of 1980.  Mr. Allen died in September of 1981.
     She was a member of the Southside Boulevard United Methodist Church and the Scism Community Club.
