Barbara Ann (Lunt) Allen, 82 , a longtime resident of Chelmsford, passed away at the Lowell General Hospital on Wednesday, May 13, 2020 as a direct result of the Covid-19 virus. She was the beloved wife of Donald H. Allen whom she married on December 27, 1958.

She was born in Portland, ME on September 12, 1937 and was the daughter of the late Clinton and Marion (Simpson) Lunt.

Barbara attended school in Portland, ME graduating from Deering High School in 1955. She was also a graduate of the University of Maine, 1959, with a BEd degree in Education. Barbara was a certified teacher of Biology and Science in Maine and Massachusetts, teaching in the Chelmsford public school system. She taught special needs at the Nashoba Valley Technical High School in Westford. Barbara played French horn in the Chelmsford Community Band from its inception in 1970, also serving as a board member. She served as a volunteer at the Chelmsford Library, Chelmsford High School, Chelmsford Senior Center and the Nashoba Valley Technical High School after her retirement in 1998. She was a member of the “Benevolent Beaders” at the Central Congregational Church in Chelmsford, making and selling jewelry for charity. Barbara loved all animals, especially rabbits, and was active with the Middlesex County 4H club. She was very proud of her heritage, being a direct descendant of the twelve passengers of the Mayflower and three passengers on the second trip to the new world.

In addition to her loving husband, Donald, she leaves behind her four children; Kenneth Donald Allen of Excelsior, MN, Stephen Lunt Allen of Santa Cruz, CA, Deborah Ann Bourque of Dover, NH and Scott Edward Allen of Pueblo, CO, her six grand-children and one great-grandchild.

Mom, we love you and will miss the love and support you have given us over the years. We would not have been the people we are without you.
Through school, sports, college, and grandchildren, you have always been the bedrock of our lives.
We will always miss you.
Love you, Scott

Mom, thank you for a lifetime of patience, encouragement and support - you were always there for me. You taught me to be independent, self-reliant, rational, and helpful. I’m so proud to be your son and I feel your loss deeply.

You were always tolerant and calm, even when Dad was away on business for a few weeks at a time. Oh sure, you occasionally had to ask us to run around the house 10 times to burn off energy, but you always did it nicely. You got involved with our projects – be it school related, or Scouts, sports, music, animals, etc. – and that felt good.

I learned as I grew up how proud you were of your kids. Being a good Yankee, you didn’t talk of it frequently with us, but I often heard it second hand from folks you knew in the schools and around town. I know you were also very proud of all of your grandchildren – it’s been a source of pride that you thought our three boys turned out to be great young men and I’m sure you felt the same about your other grandchildren. I’m sorry you never got to meet your great-granddaughter in person, but I’m so happy that you were at least able to have a nice FaceTime call with her before you got sick – I bet you really enjoyed yourself on that call!

Miss you already, Mom. I’m grateful for the time we had, but I wish we’d had more. Rest well and peacefully. Love you - Ken

There are no words to tell you Mom what losing you has meant to all of us. Our hearts ache with sadness, but I am forever grateful for you. You were always there with a smile, a hug and a supportive word for me. I learned how to be a mom from the beautiful woman you were to me every day of my life. Although you are no longer here, I know I will always feel you beside me and guiding me through life, Mom. You will always be in my heart, Mom. Not one day will pass that I will not think about you. Know how much I love you, Mom., forever and always.
I love you!

We love you and will miss you, mom. You've been a patient and wonderful mother to us, dealing with years of learning musical instruments, childhood angst, social craziness, and life's adventures and misadventures. You were always happy for our growth and our happiness. Your kindness and devotion to life and learning affected so many people. The world is a better place for you having been here. Rest in peace. - Your loving son, Steve
