   The church was filled with relatives and friends and the many beautiful flowers were mute evidence of love and sympathy.  A quartet composed of Mrs. Gilbert McCormick, Mrs. Alice Grosvenor, Elton McCormick and Dan Stephens sang and Mrs. McCormick sang a solo.  The pall bearers were Mr. Allen's brothers, Claude, Clint and Roy Allen and their sons.  Burial was in the Wilder cemetery.

   On September 30, 1930, she was united in marriage with Clark Allen of Wilder where they have since made their home.
