Joan Ann Allen, 83, of Clarks Summit formerly of Scranton passed away on May 17, 2020 after an illness.
Joan was born and raised in Scranton, the daughter of Arthur Wilson and Lillian Owens Wilson. She was
a graduate of Scranton Technical High School.
Joan was proud of her time working on Northeastern Bank where she met her husband of 53 years
Arthur Wayne Allen of 53 years whom she married on June 23, 1967. She was a stay at home mom
during both her sons' younger years, returning to the workforce at Allied Services Rehab as a unit
secretary. Joan spoke fondly of all her colleagues she worked with and had remained friends with many
to the end. Upon her retirement, Joan loved golf, and spent mornings with her good friends in the
Thursday Morning Ladies Golf League at Pine Hills and later in the Senior Women's International Golfers
League. She was a member of the Countryside Community Church.
She is survived by her husband Arthur Wayne Allen sr., a son, Scott Douglas Allen and wife Stephanie
Ann Allen of Clarks Summit, and three grandchildren, Zachary, Isabella and Victoria, whom she adored a
great deal. She was preceded in death by a son, Arthur Wayne Allen, Jr. and a sister Maie Newton.
Joan's family wishes to send heartfelt thanks to Allied Hospice, Dr. Kenneth Sebastianelli & Lackawanna

private graveside service at a later date. Memorial Contributions can be made to Allied Hospice, 511
