Gail “Elaine” Allman



Gail “Elaine” Allman, 75, of Seymour, passed away peacefully on September 5, 2021, at the Lutheran Community Home in Seymour after a two-year illness. Elaine was the oldest child born to Gayten Thomas and Lena Mae Blizard on May 18, 1946, in Jefferson County, IN. She graduated from Seymour High School in 1964. On November 21, 1965, she married Clyde H. Allman at Central Christian Church in Seymour. Elaine worked at Cummins as a secretary in Columbus, IN. Shortly after, she turned her interest and passion for antiques into a career. Elaine began researching, collecting, and selling antiques in her mid-20’s. She became a well-sought after Antique Dealer due to her expertise and various collections. Elaine specialized in Early Country American Antiques. During her lifetime, she greatly enjoyed antiques, gardening, sewing, and watching sports. Being a mother and grandmother was Elaine’s pride and joy. She was very involved in helping care for her granddaughters in their early years, as well as always being there to provide the best “after school snacks.” Elaine enjoyed attending every extra-curricular activity her son and grandchild participated in; always being the loudest fan on the sideline. She was a proud Nana and Mom who cherished every moment spent with her three granddaughters.

She is survived by her son Scott (Michelle) Allman, and grandchildren Sydney, Kendall, Karsen, and Griffin. She is also survived by her sister, Jill Cord, brother-in-law, Bill Cord, sister-in-law, Wanda (John) Allman, nephews Adam Cord, Rob and Ron Allman, as well as nieces Janet Belding and Julia Allman.

She is preceded in death by her husband of 55 years, Clyde Allman, as well as father and mother, and brothers-in-law Raymond and John Allman, and sister-in-law Helen Hahn.

Visitation will be held on Friday, September 10, 2021, from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. at Voss and Sons Funeral Home. Funeral services will follow with Pastor Rick Prather officiating. Burial will follow at Weddleville Cemetary in Medora,IN.

The family asks that memorial checks be written to Old Carr Highschool Weddleville Cemetary, Medora Masonic Lodge, or the Foundation of Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics (FAST).
