Carol Rae (Rowley) Allen died on August 17, 2021 at her home in Vernal, Utah. She was surrounded by family and friends – just the way she wanted to be. She was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, girlfriend, and more.
Carol was born on November 6, 1941 to Acel Deforest Rowley and Laura Venis (Smuin) Rowley. Carol graduated from Uintah High School class in 1960. As a young woman, she loved bareback riding and barrel racing on her horse “Midge”. Carol married Larry A. Allen on March 31, 1965. They were blessed with three sons, Dale, Dean, and Ronald (Ron). She was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Carol retired in 2005 after serving over twenty years as the office manager for the Uintah County Recorder. She considered being a grandmother to be a high point in her life, and she loved her grandchildren, Mitch, Kyle, and Carter endlessly.
Carol was really unique. She was the planner, organizer and all-round supervisor of everything. Her home was known to many in the community as the daily 5 o’clock coffee spot. Carol and Larry toured the country in both Larry’s articulated lorries and on their road rods. Carol was an avid auto show enthusiast. She and Larry attended hundreds of shows over several decades, accompanied by Max and Louise Martin, Clarence and Lilian Hamilton, Brad and Gail Sorensen, Terrie and Rod White, Joe and Amber Gardner, and countless other members of their “auto show family”.
Carol leaves behind her husband, Larry A. Allen, children Dale A. Allen of Vernal, Dean A. Allen (Cheryl) of Kaysville, Ronald R. Allen (Natalie) of Kirkland, Washington, and brothers Delyle Rowley and Dallas Rowley, sisters -in-law Diane Rowley and Jessie Rowley; and many nieces, nephews and other families. Her parents Acel and Laura Rowley, her brothers Gary Rowley and Dennis Rowley and her daughter-in-law Denice (Winward) Allen precede her in death.
The funeral will take place on Saturday, August 21, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. at Blackburn Vernal Mortuary
