Myla M. Allen

September 21, 1950April 24, 2013

Myla Marie Allen was born on September 21, 1950, in Fayetteville, North Carolina to parents Ellis M. and Ann Allen. The family moved west, living in Yakima, Washington, and finally settled in Portland, Oregon. Myla lived in the family home until June 1961, and then was moved to Fairview Training Center during the week where she attended classes, and came home on weekends. Myla eventually moved into group home settings, and came to settle in Cornelius, Oregon in 2003, with Bethesda Lutheran Communities and her wonderful family at the Ginger Street house which she loved very much. Myla worked at a resale clothing store in Hillsboro, Oregon for many years, where she would help fold clothes and would string beaded necklaces. She loved to string beads for hours on end, as well as color in her countless coloring books. Myla was known and loved by so many people that were her friends, co-workers, and caregivers. Her smile, laughter, love and kind heart will be missed by many. Myla’s parents preceded her in death, Ellis in 1989, and Ann in 1995. She is survived by her twin sisters, Wyndi Perry and Cyndi Garrison.

Our sweet, gentle and kind Myla...you will be missed so much but I am glad you are now no longer in pain and are with Mom and Dad. I am so thankful that you got to spend your last years in your lovely home on Ginger Street. You had so many friends and caring staff to help you there...what a blessing! I know they will all miss you too. Forever in my heart! xo, Wyndi

Myla, I miss you. I wished this never happened to you, You were like a sister to me at the group home. We had a good time at the beach in Lincoln City. I used to live with you at BPJohn's, Oregon City Manner, and Good Shepherd, Cornelius. I'm glad you are now with your mom and dad. I miss you but I'm glad we had time together. I will remember you.
