Opal Allen, age 92, passed away August 25, 2019 at Cookeville Regional Medical Center.
Opal was born in Warren County, Tennessee on May 1, 1927 to Dillard and Alta Freed Ramsey.

She grew up in the Dodson Branch Community of Jackson County. Opal left home briefly during World War II to work in the cafeteria at Oak Ridge during the Manhattan Project. After her marriage to Aron Andrew Allen in 1946 she moved to Dayton, Ohio where she worked for General Motors and raised her family. Upon retirement she returned to Jackson County to enjoy many years on the family farm raising cattle, goats and chickens. She enjoyed gardening, basket making and quilting. Her family and grandchildren were a tremendous source of enjoyment in her life. Opal was especially supportive of her grandchildren’s educational pursuits.

Opal is survived by five children: Gary David Allen, Donna Castle, Dennis (Yolande) Allen, Diana Acree and Darryl (Helen) Allen; seven grandchildren, four great-grandchildren, two great-great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her loving husband of 58 years, Aron Allen, her sister Juanita Judd and grandson Toby Allen.

Funeral Services for Opal will be held Wednesday, August 28, 2019 beginning at 1:30 pm from the chapel of Crest Lawn Funeral Home, with Bro. Ronnie Dunn officiating. Interment will follow in Dodson Branch Cemetery.

The family will receive friends at the funeral home Wednesday, August 28 from 11:00 am until time of service at 1:30 pm.
