Margene Taylor Allen was born to Richard Oscar Taylor and Agnes Ostell Taylor on March 12, 1930 in Atmore, Alabama. She was the youngest of 9 children. She passed away July 31, 2020, unfortunately, due to the Covid 19 Virus.

After high school, Margene worked at the Paper Mill in Cantonment, Florida. It was this time that she met her future husband, Bob. He was a flight student. Margene and Bob married, so similar to the movie “An Officer and a Gentleman”. Margene and Bob were able to travel throughout Asia, Hawaii and the west coast before retiring in Pensacola. Their son, Harvey was born on December 11, 1951. Harvey’s Dad was a pilot in the Navy so he would have to be gone a lot. During these times, Margene taught Harvey how to swim in the beautiful waters of Hawaii. Margene and Harvey weathered many Typhoons in Okinawa together.

Margene is survived by her son Harvey Allen (Pam), Grandchildren Randy (Sam) and Ema (Gavin) and Great Grandchildren Noah and Piper and someone she loved as her own, Pat Erickson. She was preceded in death by Bob, her ex-husband, her parents and siblings.

Margene was active with the Military Officers Wives Clubs and helped with many events throughout her husband’s Navy career. She also was active with several Church Women’s groups. She was an excellent painter! Many of us have beautiful beach scenes, flowers, mountains and more paintings that she has painted over the years.

A service celebrating her life will be 2PM Monday, August 10, 2020 at Pensacola Memorial Gardens with Rev. Mark Dees officiating. Visitation will begin one hour before the service at 1PM. Burial will follow in Pensacola Memorial Gardens Cemetery.

It’s sad to think that her life was taken by a China Borne virus. She traveled many times to Hong Kong and developed a love for anyone Chinese. Fly high Margene!

For anyone attending the visitaton or service, The Funeral Home is asking that you wear a mask while you are in the building and that you follow ALL social distancing guidelines.
