Dear Allred family,
Lou Jean was much loved by many including the Larsen family. I have wonderful memories of her during my growing years in the neighborhood playing with Julie and through Wilford 1st Ward. She was always happy and serving others and radiated warmth, love, and optimism wherever she went. Jack and Lou Jean were loving home teachers to my parents for many years. Words cannot express our appreciation. We send our love and condolences to all of Allred family.

We lived in the Wilford Ward for 9 years. During that time we were able to get to know Lou Jean and Jack quite well. My husband was call to serve as a 2nd counselor to Jack (as bishop) and Lou Jean helped me out by sitting with me and my 3 young children in sacrament meeting. Then when my husband was made bishop, Jack and Lou Jean continued to help me out with our 4 children. They helped me out so much in a hard time of life and helped me stay sane. We moved away 10 years ago, but still stayed in touch. Lou Jean called me about 2 years ago before my son left on his mission to wish him well.

We will miss LouJean. Prayers and love to Jack and the entire family.

Lou Jean and Jack helped me at a time when I was truly in need. When Jack was bishop of our ward, he chose my husband as 2nd counselor to replace another. Since I had 3 young children at the time he asked Lou Jean to sit with me at church and help. She saved me or I think I would have gone insane dealing with those kids on my own. Then when Jack was released as bishop and my husband was called in his place, Lou Jean and Jack continued to sit with me and our now 4 children. We moved from the ward about 10 years ago, but we still kept in touch. Lou Jean called me before my oldest son left on his mission, wishing him well. We will miss Lou Jean even though we have not seen her for years

Thirty years ago, when I was a sixteen-year-old girl, Lou Jean & Jack Allred accepted me into their family as their daughter-in-law & they have treated me like a daughter every day since. As a young mother Lou Jean served as a role model for me; gracefully demonstrating how a woman could have a career, care for her family, keep a house, get dinner on the table, get people to gather around the table, bake cookies, and have a great life. If it was worth seeing, she went to see it. If it was worth doing, she probably knew how to do it & she was willing to teach you. Lou Jean taught me how to make freezer jam and she taught me how to waterski. She had an endless amount of love in her heart for everyone & she knew how to plan fun adventures designed to draw loved ones near and grandchildren together. 

Dearest Lou Jean, when she is ready, I promise to teach her. As Always, Pam
