On Saturday, April 9, 2022, Sandra Barton Allen entered into the presence of the Lord. She was born in Chicago, Illinois, on March 3, 1937 to Patricia Taylor and Dominic Barton. She spent many years on the Taylor Farm in Pennsylvania, and later moved to Norfolk, Virginia, where she met Bob Allen, her loving husband of nearly 62 years. After marriage and the birth of their daughter, they moved to Ellicott City, Maryland, where they have resided since. In addition to her husband, she is survived by her daughter Barbara Allen, son Guy Allen, his wife Swati Allen, and their two children Jason Allen and Paige Allen, whom she adored.
She worked almost 15 years as an executive secretary before becoming a full-time mother and homemaker. She was an active member of the Church of the Resurrection in Ellicott City, and was most proud of her membership with the Catholic Daughters of the Americas, her role as a Eucharistic Minister, and several other volunteer efforts. Sandra also had many creative passions. She conducted painting classes and participated as an extra in several TV and motion pictures. You can see her in Major League 2!
Sandra loved everyone in her life so fiercely and unconditionally, especially her husband, children, and grandchildren. Her purpose in life was to spread as much love and kindness as she could. She always had a way of making you feel like the most special person in the world anytime you saw her. Her greatest joy in life was seeing all of her family together, and she will forever be the very best part of all of us.
A Funeral Mass will be held in the Chapel at the Church of the Resurrection, 3175 Paulskirk Dr, Ellicott City, MD 21042, on Tuesday, April 19th, at 10:30am.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Sandra's name to St. Vincent De Paul Baltimore (https://www.vincentbaltimore.org/ways-to-give/gifts-in-memory/).
