Allyne was a woman of strong faith that loved the Lord. She was a devoted member of Garden Oaks Baptist Church, Ferguson Baptist Church and Moberly Baptist Church. Allyne assisted at the churches she attended by working in the church nursery. She loved to cook and always prepared big family meals for Sunday dinner. Her only stipulation was if you wanted to eat you had to go to church with her. Allyne even had Clyde build a custom table big enough for the entire family. She loved her family dearly and cherished every opportunity she had to spend time with them. Allyne will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
Graveside service for Allyne will be held Saturday, September 29, 2018 at 11:00 am at Rosewood Park Cemetery, 1884 FM 1844, Longview, Texas 75605.
