August 21, 1945 ‒ October 14, 2018
Allean Massie, a precious loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, slipped away peacefully into the loving hands of her Lord on Sunday, October 14, 2018 surrounded by her loving family. She was 73 years old and lived in Marion most of her life.
Allean was born in Paintsville, Kentucky to the late Bud and Peachie (Gamble) Gullett on August 21, 1945. When Allean was 15 years old she moved to Marion, with her family. Here, she found employment, raised her family, and made lasting memories.
Allean was a wonderful woman who loved her family more than anything. She made sure everyone was taken care of, well fed, and felt supported with her wise wisdom. Allean was the first to volunteer to go shopping especially if it involved a trip to Goodwill. To say Allean liked to fish was an understatement. Any chance she had she could be found with a fishing-rod in her hand.
On April 20, 1973 Allean married the love of her life, Stephen Massie. Together they spent many years watching grandchildren grown, fishing, and spending winters in Okeechobee, Florida riding on her beloved golf cart. Steve survives.
Allean was a woman of deep faith attending Gethsemane Lutheran Church in Marion for the past twelve years. Always providing for her family, Allean worked for 17 years at Grumman Bus Factory in Delaware and later retired as a supervisor from the Juvenile Prison in 2004.
Allean will be deeply missed by her husband, Stephen; children, Jerry (Linda Massie) Gullett of Marion and Linda DeRan of Mansfield; grandchildren, Jonathan, Chase, Luke, Wade, Emily, Jennifer, James, and Jarrod; four great-grandchildren, and siblings, Eldon “Bob”, Sis, and Kay.
Allean was preceded in death by parents, and siblings, Tildon and Lloyd.
Visitation will be held at Gethsemane Lutheran Church 219 East Church St., Marion, Thursday, October 18, 2018 from noon until a 1 pm funeral service. Rev. Brent Cournelious will officiate and burial will follow at Marion Cemetery.
Memorial donations may be made in Allean’s honor to Gethsemane Church or Ohio Health Hospice.
The family would like to extend heart felt thank you to all the staff at Ohio Health Hospice for the care provided to Allean.
