ALBION – On Tuesday, January 5th, 2021, Sue left this world to go home to the love of her life, Wayne.

When she wasn’t at home, sitting in her comfy chair with a Danielle Steel novel, she may have been on one of the long car rides she enjoyed. She loved spending time with her family and friends, listening to music, watching Hallmark movies, asking her grandkids about their day, and laughing. She had a jewelry collection to rival Imelda Marcos’ shoes and always smelled of warm vanilla. She was loved very much and her presence will be missed.

She was predeceased by her husband, Alvin Wayne Allen; her parents, John and Mary (Iorio) Albanese, and her brother, John Albanese.

She is survived by her son, John (Jessica) Allen; her grandchildren, Kaitlyn, Alexander and Natalie Allen; her brother, Paul (Anne) Albanese; a niece and nephew; several close, loving cousins, and many wonderful friends.

The family will celebrate her life, privately, at a later date. Sue’s arrangements have been entrusted to Christopher Mitchell Funeral Homes, Inc. Albion. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in her name to the American Diabetes Association, 4955 N. Bailey Ave., Suite 217, Amherst NY 14226.
