She also loved to sing and dance, and was known to quite often break out into a song with her beautiful singing voice. In her spare time she was found tending to her flowers in her yard, listening to music, writing poetry, and reading scriptures. She was also a devoted Christian and was a member of First Baptist Church of Asheboro, NC.
In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her husband, Silas Allmond, and her two sons, Steven Allmond and Eric Allmond, Sr.

The family would like to extend their heartfelt gratitude for the caring and compassionate care that was provided by the wonderful nursing staff at Randolph Hospital and Randolph Hospice House.
