Obituary for Vera Anne Allen

Vera Anne (Maroney) Allen passed from this life on December 2, 2017, surrounded by family. She was born in Eagle Pass, Texas, on November 12, 1944, to William C. and Wilberta Maroney, both originally from Kokomo, Indiana. She met the love of her life, William F. Allen, at Southside High School in San Antonio, Texas. They attended the University of Texas at Austin together, and married on May 29, 1965. While Bill was in Vietnam in 1970, Vera gave birth to their only child, Erin Marie Allen.
Vera taught second grade for Austin Independent School District for two years, then left to join the school at Austin Bible Church, called Christian Heritage Academy. She worked at the church school both as teacher and principal, until she retired in 1980 due to illness. She homeschooled Erin through middle school. Vera’s hobbies included sewing clothes, crocheting, and hostessing great parties for Erin’s youth group. Her house was the one where the children congregated to play, and in 1992, she taught Erin and a group of Erin’s friends how to play contract bridge.
Vera was preceded into the next life by her parents and her brothers George W. Maroney, John Robert Maroney, Thomas C. Maroney, and Daniel R. Maroney. She is survived by her husband and daughter, her sisters Linda K. Marcum and E. Jayne Neal, and nine nieces and nephews: Jenna E. Marcum, Daniel R. Maroney, Jr., G. John Marcum, Michael J. Marcum, Katya A. Voss, Daniella E. Houk, Isaac N. Neal, Lydia K. Grindatto, and Sophia A. Neal.
