Evelyn Ada Allen

April 25, 1933 ~ March 3, 2018 (age 84)

Evelyn Ada Allen, 84, of Gardiner passed away on March 3, 2018 at MaineGeneral Medical Center in Augusta.  She was born in Gardiner on April 25, 1933.

She graduated from Gardiner Area High School in 1950.  She worked for many years in a shoe shop in Lewiston and prior to her retirement, worked as a housekeeper at the Senator Inn in Augusta.

Evelyn loved to read, collect post cards, and knit.  She had bookcases full of the books she loved to read.  She loved cats and had several over her lifetime.  Her latest cat, Callie, gave Evelyn much enjoyment as Callie ran around playing with jingle balls and strings.  Evelyn had a wonderful sense of humor and had great stories to tell.

She was predeceased by her parents, Berdena Mae (Albee) and George Albert Allen; and her brother Maurice Allen.

She is survived by her brother, Elton and his wife, Mary (Emery) Allen of Dresden; nieces and nephews Jackie (Allen) and Chris Reed of Clearfield, Utah; Jim and Rachel Allen of Rochester, New Hampshire; Linda (Allen) and Jake Maschino of Chelsea; and Andy and Kristen Allen of Blackstone, Massachusetts; as well as several great nieces and nephews.

The family would like to express sincere thanks to the staff at the Kennebec Kidney Center and MaineGeneral Medical Center in Augusta for the excellent and kind care they provided for Evelyn over the last few years.
