I will always remember Mrs.Roddy for her sweetness, kindness and her compassion for everyone. I was a caregiver for her husband many years , she was family to me. I will always remember those times cooking in the kitchen with her, showing me some of her special recipes ( chicken n dumpling, cornbread and her deserts ) our grocery runs, going to her favorite clothing store(Talbot),lunches the list goes on. I will always give God glory for sharing her and so many memories we shared together, it was more than a work relationship she was family. I will love you forever!!!!! Fly high God’s Angel

Allene was such a sweet person. She was good friends with my mother and they were both classy ladies. I have fond memories of her and Ken from church. I'm sure they are all celebrating the reunion in Heaven. My prayers are with the family. I've included a picture of Allene and my mother, Marilyn.
