Savina R. Allen, 91, of Frametown, WV, passed away peacefully August 18, 2016. She was born in South Charleston, WV on August 31, 1924 to the late John Corbett and Mattie B. Samples.

Savina was married to her beloved husband Forrest “Foss” E. Allen, Sept. 20, 1944. She loved making her home a welcoming place for her friends and family. Savina was known as “Nannie” by her loved ones. She loved to provide a table spread, which always included cornbread and biscuits for all to enjoy! In earlier years she loved to bowl and crochet, both of which she did quite well. Savina was a believer in our Lord Jesus Christ and she and Foss faithfully attended New Life Chapel near Gassaway, WV for many years.

After the death of her beloved husband of 69 years, “Nannie” made her home with her loving son, Forrest Ray, whom she called “Buddy” and his wife, Jill, on Weberwood Drive in South Charleston, WV. She spent much of her time doing word search puzzles, enjoying her flowers, and watching game shows. Savina loved to laugh as she had a terrific sense of humor. Savina is survived by her brother, Moyer (Mo) Samples; daughter, Sandra K. (Allen) Glassman, and her husband, Mike, of Victoria, KS; son, Forrest Ray Allen, and his wife, Jill. Grandchildren, Allen Burch, June Karlin, Chris Livengood, Melissa Eskew, Jonathan Allen, Patrick Allen, Erin Gonzales, and Adam Mick, 16 great grandchildren and 2 great-great grandchildren. Savina was preceded in death by her parents, her brother, Elliott Samples, and her husband, Forrest E. Allen. She was blessed with a happy, long life, and for that we celebrate, though she will be missed immensely.

Friends will be received on Friday, September 9th, 2016, from 6 to 9 p.m. at Richard M.
