Ann Marie Allen, 59, daughter of Beryl and Marianette (Durfey) departed this life, January 26, 2021, in Lake Regional Hospital, Osage Beach, Missouri.

She was preceded in death by her father, Beryl Allen, and brother-in-law, Ron Asmann.

And 16 great nieces and nephews.

Ann was born and raised at the Lake of the Ozarks. On October 6, 1979, her senior year, Ann was in an automobile accident that changed her life. But she met her new challenges head on and was still an active member of the community. She loved living at the lake and never took for granted the beauty of the area and especially enjoyed outings at Ha Ha Tonka. When she was at home, the squirrels eating at the birdfeeder out her window, brought her lots of entertainment. Ann worked for Wal-Mart for almost 30 years as a people greeter. Always welcoming people with a smile and often holding up an “I love you” sign with her hand.

Ann was a member of St. Anthony’s Catholic Church where she could be found on the front row, every chance she could.

In her spare time she enjoyed listening to live music with her family at area restaurants where many of the musicians knew her by name. Ann was a talented artist and created many beautiful paintings throughout the years. Funeral mass will be held at 11:00 a.m., February 6, 2021, at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church, in Camdenton, Missouri. Private burial will follow in St. Anthony’s Catholic Cemetery.
