- Priscilla M. Allen, 88, of Palms Springs, FL, and Sedgwick, ME, died peacefully at her Florida home, Friday, May 12, 2017.
She was born in Brooklin, ME, on August 19, 1928, the daughter of the late Pearl Rufus and Lillian B. (Grindle) Tainter. She graduated from Brooklin High School in 1946 where she excelled on the girls basketball team and played trombone for the High School band.

She is survived by her five children, Mary Jane Mann and husband, Ethan of Broomfield, CO, Martin Allen and partner, Gina Sensontic of Penobscot, Kermit Allen, Jr. and wife, Darlene, Jeffrey Allen and wife, Tina, all of Blue Hill, Annie Allen and partner, Michelle Duprey of Holden, eleven grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
She is also survived by her partner of 49 years, Edwin K. Pert. Throughout their relationship he was the most loving, caring, attentive companion especially as of late staying by her side providing exceptional care and comfort.
For many summers Priscilla worked as the hostess of Eaton's Lobster Pool and later tended the family's Blueberry Patch gift shop. She was personable, friendly, and genuinely enjoyed working with the public. She had a smile that would light up a room and a terrific sense of humor.
She most enjoyed spending time with family and friends at gatherings and parties. She is fondly remembered for baking her delicious pies, cookies and especially Allen's blueberry cake. She was very generous and thoughtful never missing an opportunity to send a card or acknowledge family birthdays or holidays. She also enjoyed sunny days, the beach, boating, seafood, day trips and joy rides to favorite restaurants.
