Allie was born in Montrose, Colo. and moved to Calif. with her family when she was a young girl.

Loving to learn, she attended several junior colleges over many years taking business, gardening and decorating classes.

Her next career was as a Deputy Clerk ll in the Municipal Courthouse in Van Nuys. She and Hal travelled the Alcan Highway in 1974 in their camper truck, which, at that time, was quite an undertaking.
