She also lived in the United Kingdom for four years. While living in England, Mrs. Allen travelled to Scotland, Holland, France and Germany and toured extensively in England. Mr. Allen became an ordained minister in 1971 and after retiring from military service in 1973, he became a full time minister. Mrs. Allen supported him as a pastor's wife in several churches in SC, LA and MS.
