Helen Mae Allen, 63, of Amarillo, Texas, passed away on Tuesday, July 27, 2021.

Helen was born in Lockney, Floyd County, Texas, to Jack and Willie B. Thomas Towery.

Helen enjoyed riding, movies, talking about the good ole days, great food, and the company of family and friends.  She was one of the humblest persons you could have met.  If anyone knew Helen as we did, you would know she had a heart of gold!

She loved all of “God’s” creations and was always in good spirit with a smile on her face to greet you.

Children, “A queen has fallen.”  Dear Mama Helen, your passing was more than we could bear, but like you, we too were built to weather the storm.  We too, rest now knowing that you are in a better place.  Through us, your legacy lives on.  Your “babies, as you would say, and “Kuma,” misses you so much!  Farewell, Mrs. Towery, for our journey continues… ~Psalms 23, The Lord is My Shepherd~

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Johnny Lee Allen, Sr., a brother, J. T. Towery, and four sisters, Joylene Gooden, Merline Brown, Kay Gardner, and Nadine Roberts.

Allen, Destiny Allen, Dynasty Allen, Kimberly (Quentin) Banks, Terry Allen, Jamar Allen Farnsworth, and Octavious Pruitt, ten grandchildren, De`Quelin Johnson, Jamarious Mills, LaNaria Wilkerson, Za`maje Wilkerson, Ke`yonce Shoels, Braylon Banks, Bryson Banks, Kollyn Banks, Zaiden L.
