Jeanette Lynn Allen, age 62, passed away March 28, 2013. She was the dearest wife of Patrick Allen, beloved mother of Ann Marie Mason, and the late Jason Allen, cherished grandmother of Cody and Luke Mason, precious daughter of the late Lois and Ben Belsley, and caring sister of Larry (Elaine) Belsley, Linda (John) Reardon, Steve (Patti) Belsley, and Sally (Ron) Blaszczyk.

Jeanie graduated from Redford Union High School in 1968. Her kindness, ready smile and positive attitude drew people to her. She was popular as a cheerleader and elected to homecoming court. It was in high school that she caught the eye of classmate Patrick Allen. The high school sweethearts married in 1969. They enjoyed a very loving supportive marriage for 43 years.

At the age of 24, Jeanie was baptized and committed her life to the Lord. She was a devoted member of the Apostolic Christian Church for 38 years. Her faith and love for the Lord, along with serving and caring for others, was an inspiration to many. Her selfless giving was reflected in her determination to encourage and advocate for anyone struggling with life’s difficulties. Her compassion provided hope and a ray of sunshine to many strangers, family and friends. Jeanie loved nature and working outside. Her flower garden was beautiful. She willingly helped others with their work and shared positive energy with family and friends. Jeanie was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and wonderful friend. You could always count on her focused energy to help wherever needed. Her family, relatives and many friends will miss her dearly and cherish her legacy of love and kindness.

I miss my lifelong friend always and forever! You understood me more than anyone and your kindness and patience and listening were a part of your love and caring! I have many things in my house that remind me of you, towels you have sent me, baskets even old cards. Whenever I'm at my kitchen sink I remember how you would scrub my sink on South Clement Circle. Your hands and heart were always busy taking care of something or someone! I will never forget you and know when my time comes I hope you will meet me at the gate and make my passing easier! Your friend forever!
