Charlotte Allen was born March 15, 1921 in Woolsey (south of Fayetteville), AR. She went home to be with the Lord on March 28, 2008. She was married to Delbert Earl Allen and had four children, Delbert “Pete” Allen, Linda Allen Brown, Cheryl Harrison and Rick Allen. Charlotte and Delbert were a team—she managed the home and family which enabled Delbert to put his time and energy into building Allen Canning Company into the largest independent canning company in the US. She taught her children by example to love God, always tell the truth and love your neighbor as yourself. One way she lived out these principles was through her generous support of SPSFBC.
