Allen, Hattie A. (17 FEB 1855 - 5 NOV 1910)
Died, at her home in this village on Saturday, Nov. 5, 1910, Mrs. G. W. Allen, at the age of fifty-five years.
Hattie A. Hallock was born in Meaford, Ontario on Feb. 17, 1855. She came to Clark County, Wis. in 1876 and was married to G. W. Allen on Dec. 25, 1877, and they have resided in Loyal, Clark County up to the present time.
Seldom has it been our duty to record so sudden a death. A dark gloom spread over the whole community when it was whispered from one to another on Saturday afternoon that "Mrs. Allen was gone."
She was of an affectionate disposition, bright and winning in her ways, so that friendship's circle was to her a large one. Indeed, it may be said of her that "none knew her but to love her."
Her home instincts were strong. Her affection for friends and kindred was tender and abiding. Among us all she ranked always as a woman of culture, refinement, sympathy, kind neighbor, devoted mother and a true friend, and withal a woman of heroic mould in bravely meeting the stern requirements and often the disappointments of life.
She leaves to mourn two children, Freeman G. Allen of Oakland, Oregon, and Mrs. Ethel Walsh, a father, J. D. Hallock of Newport, Oregon, one brother, James Hallock of Ontario, Canada, five sisters, Ellie of Newport, Oregon, Minnie of Bellingham, Wash., Martha and May of Fresno, Cal., and Elizabeth of Meaford, Ontario.
The funeral services were held at the M. E. Church on Friday afternoon at one o'clock and the remains interred in the M. E. Cemetery. She has left us and soon the autumn leaves will fall upon another grave that hides from our sight all that is mortal of a true and noble woman.
