Death of Well-known Saltcoats Lady

Mrs Agnes Allen, one of Saltcoats most respected citizens, has died at her home, 7 Hirst Place. She was 70 years of age. Born in Ballymena, she first settled in the town of Stevenston in 1907. "Granny Allen" as she was called, was well known and respected in the towns of Saltcoats, Stevenston and Ardrossan.

Many children have first seen the light of day at the capable hands of "Granny" and her services were appreciated by all the doctors in the district. Her advice and cures for many ailments are still used to this day. and she was never happier than when attending to the sick or doing some old person's washing. In times of trouble she was a friend to many, and all this she did without thought of reward.

Her funeral was attended by a large company of mourners, who paid a last tribute to a grand old lady.
Mrs Allen is survived by 2 sons and 2 daughters.

If you find a headstone, let us know.
