Memorial services will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday at the Nikiski Middle-Senior High School. Pastor John Rysdyk will officiate. Refreshments will be served following services.
Mrs. Allemann was born Jan. 6, 1954, in Salem, Ore., where she was raised and educated, graduating from the Dallas Senior High School in 1972. Mrs. Allemann had worked for the Polk Community Hospital in Oregon prior to moving in 1978 to Nikiski, where she met her husband, Jim. They were married in June of 1979, which is when they made Nikiski their home.
She worked for John McCarthy, D.D.S., in 1978 and over the years for Preferred Realty. Most recently, she worked for Alaska Nitrogen Products.
Mrs. Allemann "devoted her life to raising her family. She filled her life with her children, Tesa and Brett, and all of the friends and activities that were important to them," the family said.
She was also very active in the community, volunteering hundreds of hours with the Nikiski Fire Department. Through the years she served as the Nikiski High School cheerleading coach and as past president and fund-raising chairman of the Nikiski PTSA. She supported multiple activities such as soccer, hockey, football, madrigal choir and dance troupe. She enjoyed sewing, cross stitching, computer art, listening to music and working with kids.
The family wrote, "Nancie loved the Lord with all of her heart and loved to serve others. She freely shared God's love and grace with others in their time of need. Her many God-given qualities were evident through her life. No one could ask for a more loving and devoted wife and mother. She was a true helpmate."
