July 5, 1930 — Nov. 17, 2020 (age 90)

NORTH LIMA — Yvonne “Bonnie” Allen, 90, of North Lima, passed away on Tuesday (Nov. 17) at St. Elizabeth Boardman Hospital.

She was born on July 5, 1930, the daughter of the late Edward and Evalyn Swank.

She worked at United Engineering and Dr. Nicolette's dentist office, but was primarily a homemaker.

On July 12th, 1952, she married Eugene Allen.

Bonnie loved garage sales, the Rogers flea market and a good bargain.

She loved playing bingo, scratch-off tickets, crossword puzzles and working in the yard.

She enjoyed collecting bottles, teacups and dolls. Above all, she loved her family. She always had sports on when she was in charge of the remote.

She leaves to cherish her memory, her husband, Gene of 68 years; her son, Rodney Allen of New Springfield; daughters Debbie Allen and BJ Allen of Poland, who both selflessly took care of her for the past few years; her granddaughter, Amber (Jason) Kamerer of Boardman; her great-granddaughter, Olivia; brothers Harry (Shirley) Swank and Edward (Donna) Swank; and her sister, Edwynna (George) Stacy.

Her family would like to thank the employees of St Elizabeth’s Boardman campus who were by her side when they could not be. 

For the safety of her family and the community, no services will be held at this time. The Borowski Funeral Services and Oak Meadow Cremation Services are handling arrangements.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Second Harvest Food Bank in her honor or consider a blood donation if your health allows.
