Another angel was called back home. Allene Davis Mills died Nov. 5, 2016, at her home in Montesano. Allene was born April 20, 1952, to Allen Mack Davis and Mildred Meyers Davis in Provo, Utah. Allene moved from Provo to Nevada, then California, before moving to Washington where she spent most of her life. Allene attended school in Aberdeen where she graduated from Weatherwax High School. She later attended Grays Harbor College. In 1973, Allene and her husband moved to Montesano where they had a son, Stacy. He survives in Montesano.
Allene worked as a bookkeeper at Duane Dewees, Western Steel, and Berglund Schmidt & Associates, where she retired in 2001. Allene participated in the Corvette car club, Active 20/30 club, English horseback riding, Salvation Army events and enjoyed playing pinochle and bunko. She especially enjoyed decorating her home with bunnies, bears, glassware, and flowers. She was very proud of her involvement with Lady Washington Tall Ships. She loved working in her yard and spending time with her dogs Sasha and Bailey. Her ultimate joy was spending time with Stacy and her granddaughters Alexis and Allison, who always called her “Granny Woman.” Allene was a member of the LDS Church.
