Nancy Sue Allen

Ware Shoals – Nancy Sue Anderson Allen, 91, of 10 N. Greenwood Avenue Ext. died Monday, January 10, 2022 with her family by her side.

Born in Abbeville County, she was the daughter of the late Roy Charlie and Eva Wright Anderson. She was a faithful wife of 73 years to her predeceased husband, Elmer Lee Allen. Nancy was the gentlest of ladies, known for her bright eyes and ever-present smile; the source of her smile was the great hope that she had in Jesus Christ her Savior, the Great Promise Keeper. She attended both the West Main Street Church of God and the Ware Shoals Pentecostal Holiness Church. Nancy was a graduate of the Ware Shoals High School Class of 1946. She was employed in textiles for over 20 years between Grendell Mills and Riegel Textile Corporation, as well as many years at the Emerald Center. Her favorite years of work were serving her clients at the Emerald Center.

In addition to her parents and her husband, she was predeceased by a daughter, Donna Inez Allen Turner, and a sister, Catherine Grace Anderson. The family would also like to express their gratitude to Inez Covington, a dear friend and caregiver to Nancy for eight years.
