Ann Allen, beloved daughter, wife, grandma, mother, sister and friend to all, passed away suddenly on Feb. 16, 2021. Ann was born Dec. 31, 1954, in Jerome, Idaho, to William Parker Pratt Jr. and Virginia Mae Adams Pratt. Ann was the fifth of six kids. As the baby sister of the family, Ann was dotted on and adored by the entire family. All the siblings remained tightknit their entire lives. Ann, sadly, lost her father to a heart attack when she was just 23 and she loved and served her mother until she passed at 89. Ann is the first sibling to be reunited with her parents.

Ann’s life, both in childhood and throughout, was spent in complete dedication to her family and her faith. She attended and graduated from Twin Falls High School, where she was involved with cheerleading, softball and roller-skating. While still in high school, Ann attended institute through CSI, where she first peaked over the hymnbook to catch a glimpse of her sweetheart and love of her life, Alvin Allen. Alvin wasted no time and they were engaged before Ann even graduated high school. Alvin and Ann were married Aug. 20, 1973, in the Salt Lake Temple. Their love and devotion for each other has become an example to emulate.

Ann and Alvin welcomed six children to their life on the farm. Ann was a devoted mother to all six. She was a constant anchor in their lives and never missed a single event or important moment. She continued that same devotion and attention to each spouse and grandchild that joined the family. She and Alvin would travel many hours to attend recitals, school plays, sporting events and more. She could always be found cuddling a grandchild while reading them a story or playing card games. Extended family also knew Alvin and Ann’s house as the heart of almost all family memories.

As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Ann had unwavering faith and served in many different capacities. Most recently, Ann and Alvin served a local mission at the Bishop’s Storehouse and as temple workers at the Twin Falls Temple. She was one of the first to volunteer to serve anyone in need. Ann was a pillar of kindness, patience, love and sincerity. She touched the lives of many.

We will miss her scaring our dad any chance she got, the “love you lots” written at the end of every card sent, her personalized, thoughtful gifts, the traditional Halloween and Easter cookie packages, her hugs and her standing at the door waving goodbye until she could no longer see our cars.

We take comfort in knowing she won’t let anything stop her serving and loving her family, not even death. The family is extremely appreciative of the overwhelming outpouring of love and support. It is a validation of all the lives she touched with her love.

Ann is survived by her adoring husband, Alvin; her children Shawn (Natalie) Allen, Scott (Nicole) Allen, Sam (Emilee) Allen, Tim (Laura) Allen, Katie (Dustin) Portela, and Kristin(Jeff) Sanchez; her 24 grandchildren; her brothers Jim (Lori) Pratt and Chris (Sharon) Pratt; and her sisters Lawana Palmer, Marie Bryant, and Jane Page.

Funeral services will be held 11am Friday, Feb. 26, 2021, at the Twin Falls South Stake Center, 541 Orchard Drive, with Bishop Blake Manwaring officiating. The family will host a viewing from 6-8pm Thursday at the Whites/Reynolds Funeral Chapel, 2466 Addison Ave East, and at the stake center one hour prior to the funeral services Friday. Burial will follow at the Filer Cemetery. Service will be live streamed and located at on Ann’s obituary page, under the photo and video tab and click on the webcast.

I'm so terribly saddened to hear of Ann's passing. I will forever remember her kind heart, warm smile, and welcoming hugs. I'm so glad I had the opportunity to know such an outstanding lady. Even years after graduating high school and no longer competing in high school rodeo with Katie, if I ran into Alvin & Ann it was like no time had passed. It was always a treat to see those smiles, get that big hug, and catch up on how the family was doing. My thoughts are with you all. I pray through all your fond memories of Ann you can find peace and strength for the difficult days ahead. My deepest sympathies, Darcie (Littler) Upton

Dear Alvin and family, Our hearts are broken as yours are. We loved Ann so much and will miss her sweet friendship.
Nothing we can say will lessen your pain, always remember that we grieve because we have loved. Love is so sacred and beautiful.
That love will follow each of you throughout your lives as a sweet remembrance. It will never go away or not be with you. Sweet Ann will be waiting faithfully for Alvin and each of her family to join her. The great promise of being Together Forever
trumps the short time we are apart. We pray for God to fill you with his spirit so that you will make it through all the tomorrows. Let your friends and loved ones serve you and comfort you. God Bless you all...
With much love,
Don & Ginny McKesson

Alvin and Family.. There really are no word that can express our deepest sadness at the Loss of Ann. What a lovely lady. We were just remembering the last time we saw her at Jeffrey's and Kristins home. As Michael J. Got the orange juice out of the fridge ,, Grandma Ann " Don't forget to shake it" It was really cute as Neal had heard those very words earlier that day... Such a special person And such a loving grandma. We love you and will always remember Ann as the sweet angle she is. She shall be missed. Neal and Terri
