Kay Nielsen Allen peacefully departed from this beautiful world surrounded by family and loved ones on August 4, 2022. Kay was born on May 6, 1941 in Midvale, Utah and was a beloved daughter to Vern and Leah Jones Nielsen. 

Kay grew up in Clearfield, Utah and attended Davis High School. She was an artist with many talents. She enjoyed crocheting, drawing, making jewelry, painting nails, and going shopping. She loved rock and roll especially the "King" and anything with some "bling bling" in it! She always sparkled from the way she dressed to her personality, she was full of life, loved to watch scary movies, to dance, and create a little mischief.

Kay was a devoted wife, mother, and member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. She served as the ward and stake librarian, as well as a primary teacher. 

Kay was preceded in death by her baby boy, her parents Vern and Leah Nielsen and her husband, Doyle Allen.

Her siblings, Colleen (Hal) Stonebraker, Sharon (Carl) Jensen, Lyn (JaNae) Nielsen, and Grant (Danna) Nielsen.
