After graduating from Searcy High School in 1946, she started her career with Southwestern Bell Telephone Company and retired in 1984.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Roy Neal Showalter; both parents; two brothers, Glen J. Clay and Howell G. Clay; two sisters, Wilma L. Holeman and Audrey A. Joyce and a granddaughter, Caroline I. Showalter.

A favorite pastime was sharing meals and card games each Monday with her treasured friends.

Laura & Roy Lynn: I cannot express how much I loved and admired your mother. Allene always had a good wit about her! I think the last time I saw her was at Mother’s funeral. It meant so much to me for her to attend. Love to you both.

I’m so sorry to hear of Allene’s passing. I’m glad I got to visit with her at Providence a few weeks ago. She & other ladies were sitting outside enjoying the sunshine on a beautiful day. Allene was a faithful servant at FBC in Searcy & in Beebe years before during my childhood. I’ll always remember her beautiful smile, her shared words of wisdom & her sassiness! Rest well sweet friend! Prayers for her family! ✝️
