Dorothy M. Allen, 93, of Centralia, Washington, passed away peacefully at home on Jan. 3, 2023. Dorothy was born in Centralia on March 18, 1929, to Marion and Lucy (Webster) Jackson. 

Dorothy grew up on her parents' farm in Centralia. She spent her days riding horses and helping her dad wrangle cows. After marrying Harold and living in Quinault for a while, Dorothy returned to the family farm where she spent the rest of her life caring for her family.
