Frances Ann Kelley Allen passed away from her earthly home to her heavenly
mansion on Saturday, February 1, 2014 after a brief illness. She was born
February 17, 1940 in Morris, OK to Sophia Kathleen Selheim Kelley and
Howard Francis Kelly. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, "momish"
, great-grandmother, aunt, mother-in-law and "Nana". She was
a graduate of Will Rogers High School in Tulsa, OK in 1958. Attended nursing
school in Muskogee, OK where she met and married her precious husband John.
They married on February 20, 1959, and spent almost every day together
for 54 years. Frances was a woman of many hats, literally, as you would
hardly ever see her not wearing one. Loved her family and never turned
down an opportunity to spend time with them, especially her grand kids
and great-grand kids. She left this world way too soon and has left a
hole in our hearts, but we are so grateful that she knew Jesus Christ
as her Lord and savior and we long for the day when we see her again in Heaven.
Frances is survived by her husband John, daughter Traci and son-in-love
Steve, son John and daughter-in-love Sheila. Grandchildren Brandon and
Monica Allen, Michael and Missy Allen, William and John Walker. Great-grandchildren
Caden and Cooper Allen and Sophie and Kaleb Allen. Sister in love, Jane
Lewis, 1 sister, Martha Goss, and brothers Dan, Raymond and Richard Kelley,
and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
Frances was preceded in death by her mother, Sophia, her father Howard
, her brother Howard Kelley, and her "adopted" grandson, Daris Schell.
A "Celebration of Life" will be held on Thursday February 6
