Gail “Elaine” Allman, 75, of Seymour, passed away peacefully on September 5, 2021 at the Lutheran Community Home in Seymour after a two-year illness. Elaine was the oldest child of Gayten Thomas and Lena Mae Blizard on May 18, 1946, in Jefferson County, IN. She graduated from Seymour High School in 1964. On November 21, 1965, she married Clyde H. Allman at Central Christian Church in Seymour. Elaine worked at Cummins as a secretary in Columbus, IN. Soon after, she turned her interest and passion for antiques into a career. Elaine began researching, collecting and selling antiques in her mid-twenties. She has become a much sought-after antique dealer because of her expertise and her various collections. Elaine specialized in antiques from ancient America. During her life she was very fond of antiques, gardening, sewing and sports. Being a mother and a grandmother was Elaine’s pride and joy. She was very involved in helping with the care of her granddaughters in their early years, while always being there to provide the best “after school snacks”. Elaine loved attending all the extracurricular activities her son and grandchild took part in; still being the loudest fan on the sidelines. She was a proud Nana and a proud mother who cherished every moment spent with her three granddaughters.
She is survived by her son Scott (Michelle) Allman and her grandchildren Sydney, Kendall, Karsen and Griffin. She is also survived by her sister, Jill Cord, her brother-in-law, Bill Cord, her sister-in-law, Wanda (John) Allman, her nephews Adam Cord, Rob and Ron Allman, as well as her nieces Janet Belding and Julia Allman. . .
She is predeceased by her 55-year-old husband, Clyde Allman, as well as her father and mother, and her brothers-in-law Raymond and John Allman, and her sister-in-law Helen Hahn.
Visitations will be held on Friday, September 10, 2021 from noon to 2 p.m. at the Voss and Sons Funeral Home. The funeral will follow with Pastor Rick Prather as celebrant. Interment will follow at Weddleville Cemetery in Medora, IN.
