Margaret E. Allmon, a longtime resident of Warsaw, passed away at home on Sunday, January 16, 2022. She was 95 years old and was surrounded by her loving family at the time of her passing.
Born in Toronto, Ohio on July 23, 1926, Margaret was one of two children born to John and Orpha Mae (Lewis) Martin. She spent her formative years in Ohio and was a 1944 graduate of David Anderson High School in Lisbon. It was there that she was married to Herbert A. Allmon on October 11, 1946; the pair shared more than more than sixty-nine years together before his passing on January 25, 2016.
Herb and Margaret moved to the Warsaw community in 1967. Together they owned and operated Allmon Upholstery, working side-by-side for more than 40 years; this was in addition to her role at Kimble Glass where she worked for more than 30 years. The roles in which she took the greatest pride were as a committed wife, a devoted mother and as a proud grandmother, great-grandmother and great-great-grandmother. She loved her family dearly and was never happier than when all were together.
She enjoyed knitting, crochet, sewing and reading. She was a caring, selfless, and loving person who rarely knew a stranger. This was evident to all who met her but especially to members and visitors of Dutchtown Brethren Church where Herb and Margaret attended for many, many years.
In addition to her husband, Herb, Margaret was preceded in passing by two daughters, Alice Mae Allmon and Nancy McCartney; son Daniel Allmon; great-grandson, Brody Fish and brother, Horace Martin. She is survived by two daughters, Jane Swinehart of Warsaw and Kathy Marvel of Mishawaka; son, Wayne (Jocy) Allmon of Decatur; 24 grandchildren; 53 great-grandchildren, 11 great-great-grandchildren and daughter-in-law, Pannee “Urai” Allmon of Thailand.
