Bobbie Allmon, was born May 11, 1929, in Shelbyville and died May 16, in Beaumont. She was a beautiful lady, who slipped into the waiting arms of Jesus and her beloved husband Paul of 53 years who has been waiting for her 16 years. She has truly been the most wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Words cannot express how deeply we will miss her, and the void her departure will leave in our lives. We honor her today and always.

She was blessed with nine grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren and one sister, Marie Bittick, of Lufkin, including many nieces, nephews, North Carolina family members and a host of friends.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Paul J Allmon; father, Iva Coe; mother, Pluma Reedy Coe and her sisters, Hazel Weeks and Iva Nell Shelton.
