Obituary for Marice Elizabeth Harman Allen

Marice Elizabeth Harman Allen passed away peacefully on Monday, November 25, 2019 after a long, courageous battle with cancer. She was born December 8, 1939 in Roanoke, AL., to parents Hezekiah Morgan (‘H.M.’) Harman, Jr. and Sara Elizabeth Green Harman.

Marice was preceded in death by her father H.M. Harman, mother Sara Green Harman and her husband Owen Randall (‘Randy’) Allen. She is survived by her sister Ouida Williams (Kenneth) of Athens, GA; as well as her children Brian Allen (Colleen) of Dover, NH, Amy LeBlanc (Ned) of Marietta, GA, Scott Allen (Sally) of Lilburn, GA, and her grandchildren Brandon LeBlanc, Matthew Allen, Sarah LeBlanc Strickland (Michael), Ryan Allen and Owen Allen, as well as many cousins, nieces and nephews.

In 1958 Marice married Randy Allen in their hometown of Hogansville, GA.
While Randy was employed in Atlanta, the two moved into their first home in Austell, GA. As their family grew, Marice and Randy moved to Mableton, GA, where they raised their children and lived the remainder of their lives.

As devoted parents, they were very active in their children’s lives, involved in all school and extra-curricular activities. Marice serviced on the PTA board, as Homeroom parent, a Cub Scout Den Mother and in the Band Booster.

Marice taught many years at Little Dears Kindergarten. Then, once her children were older, she worked at Rich’s department store, Singer and Co., and Air Sea Atlanta.
Marice and Randy enjoyed many friendships in the Mableton community. They supported the local AARP Chapter, where Marice served as board member.

Since Marice and Randy both grew up in Hogansville, they maintained a strong bond with the area. Marice was especially close to her Class of 1958 companions. For over 60 years, she kept in frequent communication with her classmates. Marice and Randy purchased a home in St. Marks, GA to stay nearer their beloved hometown, friends and family. Many special memories were made in this old farm house, particularly the Allen Thanksgiving gatherings.

She enjoyed travel. Most treasured were trips to visit Brian’s family, as they moved to various locations during his career with the Navy. Marice and Randy also shared an appreciation for their many travels out west with Randy’s bother Joe Frank and his wife Doris.

Marice was a wonderful Mother. She filled her children with a sense of wonder, taught them kindness and good character as well as finding humor in everyday life. She made every occasion special and supported all their various interests. She delighted in being a Grandmother. She attended every activity and event that she could, showing support and enjoying every minute of watching that grandchild in doing what they loved to do.

It has been said of Marice that there wasn’t any where she went that she didn’t know someone. She enjoyed people, getting to know them, and finding something in common with them. She was at ease in developing friendships. This was often evidenced by her enormous display of all the greeting cards sent, especially during her cancer treatments. She literally surrounded herself with reminders of love and encouragement from her friends and family.

This trait of easily forming connections was demonstrated as she shared her faith with others. Marice lived out her faith in tireless service to others. Many people have said “I wouldn’t be a member of the Lord’s church, would it not have been for Marice reaching out and encouraging me”.

Marice loved her church family at Liberty Hill Church of Christ, later South Cobb Church of Christ. She genuinely felt a loss when her health kept her from worship, her Ladies Bible class and other church activities. However, it was her strong faith that carried her through difficult times. She was a fine example of what it means to have and to show God’s grace.

The sum of one’s life cannot be accurately expressed in a few short paragraphs. Rather, it will be told, over time, through the imprint she left on so many lives.

The funeral service will be conducted at 11:30 a.m., Saturday, December 7, at South Cobb Church of Christ, located at 1776 Clay Rd. in Mableton, with Minister Tommy Tidwell officiating. Interment will be at 3:00 p.m. in Myrtle Hill Cemetery in Hogansville.

The family will receive friends at South Cobb Church of Christ from 10:00 a.m. until 11:30 a.m.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Georgia Agape, 3094 Mercer University Drive, Suite 200, Atlanta, GA 30341-4141 www.georgiaagape.org /

Claude A. McKibben and Sons Funeral Home of Hogansville is in charge of arrangements.
