Having met at a ballroom dance following WWII, it can be said that Bob and Evelyn have been dancing throughout their 71 years of marriage. Thoughtful, caring and always supportive of her children, grandchildren and then great grandchildren, her love has always shone through.

Allison Jr. and his wife Elizabeth, Layne Allison and her partner Fred Parker, Karen Macomber and her husband Steven and Kevin Allison and his wife Lori.
