Born on January 7, 1937, in McAlpin, FL, to the late Jacob Alfred Futch and Vera Hingson Futch, Mrs. LeVera's life was a beautiful tapestry of love, dedication, and service. She married Mr. James Henry Allen in Valdosta in the mid-1950s and shared a life filled with adventures due to their Army career.
