Obituary:
Early on Saturday, July 21, 2018 God whispered, "Come on home, for your work on earth is surely done," and an angel was dispatched from I heaven to take our beloved Grace Ella Allen away.

Grace Ella Allen was born February 8, 1936 in Rutherford County, Tennessee to the late Jimmie Lee and Annie Mary Pierce.

She received her education in the Nashville Public School System.

In 1971, she was united in holy matrimony to John Allen, who preceded her in death. She was also preceded in death by three sisters, Mary Howard, Jimmie Jennings and Barbara Yates.

Grace lived most of her adult life in the Chicago, Illinois area where she worked for the State of Illinois as an Administrator / Director in the Child Support Department Division.

Grace was loved and well known in Chicago, Illinois and Nashville, Tennessee She always spoke her mind, whatever the situation, to anyone who crossed her path. Her heart was as big as the ocean. She loved hard ... and she will be greatly missed.

She leaves to cherish her memory two devoted grandchildren, Mark Anderson Jr. of Detroit, Michigan and Joseph Anderson of Chicago, Illinois; one sister, Emma C. Johnson of Dale City, Virginia; a host of loving nieces, nephews, cousins and friends; and devoted friends, Marin (Bruce) Spotts, Mable Woods, Gwen, Lee, Elaine Martin and Beverly Smith.
