Obituary

Rufina Allen, of Carrollton, TX was born on March 6, 1948 to mother Ninfa Garcia and father Telesforo Ramon in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico. Rufina passed away on July 1, 2020.
Rufina loved life and enjoyed every minute of it. She had many talents she acquired over her years of working. She could cut and style hair, she could sew, and her cooking was amazing. No one made better tamales. One of Rufinas favorite hobbies was watching TV. She had her favorite novelas and was always up to date on the news. She stayed up all hours, being somehow both a night owl and an early bird when she needed to be. Rufina could have coffee at any time of day. Her face would light up if you asked if she wanted a cup of coffee, but you had to make sure it was made just right as she was not shy to tell you if it tasted like “sock water”. Through the tough exterior life taught her to put up, she was so sweet, and had a huge heart.
Family was always number 1 to her. She could spend hours on the phone with her brothers, joking about old times and looking forward to when she could get together with them again so they could make fun of each other in person, as they loved to do. Rufina could also often be found up all night cracking jokes with her cousins on the phone. She was always staying connected with her family, even those she hadn't’t seen in years.
Rufina loved each of her daughters in her own special way. Fina and her could have had a fight and two days later be found having a beer together and laughing, or driving together to Laredo for one of Chapo’s parties. Juanita could always count on her mom when she needed her, whether just to talk, or when she was going through hard times. Rufina believed in Nereyda and all her ambitions and dreams, from being in band in high school to graduating from university. She also never missed morning coffee and novela rundowns with Nery. Even though Rufina was quick to pick fights with Rocio, she was and always will be her baby.
Rufina was also crazy about her grandchildren and she would do anything and everything for them. She will be deeply missed.
Rufina is preceded in death by her parents, Telesforo and Ninfa; siblings Leopoldo Ramon and Juan Ramirez; grandchildren Jovan and Angelita. Rufina is survived by her daughters Fina Allen-Guzman, Juanita Allen, Nereyda Allen, and Rocio Allen; grandchildren Jeanette, Angel, Rodolfo Jr., Alexandria, Emmalie, Magali, Emmanuel Jr., and Giulianna; Great grandchild Elijah; Siblings Serapio Ramon, and Gregorio Ramon as well as many nieces and nephews.

Nereyda, I am SO sorry for your loss. Losing your Mom and best friend is
very difficult.  She was not able to take care of her children anymore like she use to, she was tired, so she was called home to get her wings;but she will be with you every day of your life. She will always be right by your side, walking every step with you.  She is free of pain and doing all the things she could not do anymore. I am sending you a kiss for your cheek and a huge hug for your heart and your entire family. Love always, Mama Bear

Como quisiera poder verte de Nuevo. Me siento en la Cocina a tomar cafe y no te encuentro solo queda TU recuerdo. Perdi mucho tiempo y no te demonstre del todo cuanto te quiero. Tube tantas oportunidades de hacerlo y no lo hice. Y ahora que va a pasar. Como le hago. Como hago para decirtelo si no me puedes escuchar mas. Aunque te grite no volveras jamas. No puedo acceptarlo. Como quisiera aunque fuera una llamada tulla. Aunque sea una solamente de tantas que me hiciste. Person por ser una desconciderada y no contestant esas llamadas. Solo querias saber so estabien, preguntar por tus nietos que tanto quisiste o solamente escuchar mi voz porque me extranabas. Disculpame por favor porque no supe valorar TU preocupacion de madre. Se dice que lo que uno hace da vueltas con Los de uno. Puede que si pero ni eso hara que vuelva a tenerte serca. Cuanto tiempo desaproveche tu presencia y El abrazarte y El decirte que Estoy muy orgullosa de que seas mi Madre y yo TU hija. Si te lo dije una ves me acuerdo y con mucho orgullo the lo volveria a decir pero TU ya no me escuchas. Perdon por no haberte puesto en un pedestal como te lo merecias como mi madre que Eres . Pero una cosa si the digo. Toda TU lucha en esta vida y El crianos TU Sola no va hacer en vano. Te cumplire lo que te prometi un dia. Tu SIEMPRE cuidandonos a mi y a mis hijos que como tu decias son TU hijos tambien. Ellos te amaran por SIEMPRE. De Nuevo the pido perdon aunque sea ya tarde, y aunque ya no escuchare esa risita coqueta cuando hacias una travesura. Como me gustaba El verte sonreir. Me dava cuenta que a pesar de lo que pasaba TU sonreias y eso era una muestra que Todo Iva a estar bien.  Pero eso si nunca se te pasaba ninguna. Como cuando estavas dis que dormida en El sofa de la Sala y Los ninos tratavan de pasar a la Cocina sin hacer ruido. Ellos dicen que habrias in ojo y Les decias, " A donde chingaos van?" Vallanse a acostar, orale Cabrones". Y see regresaban a sus cuartos Risa y Risa. Mamy decia, "Van haber Cabrones le voy a decir a su Mama!". Como van a extranarte Mamy El igual que yo y Angel. TU viviras en nuestros recuerdos por SIEMPRE. GRACIAS POR TODO MAMY Y POR TU APOLLO INCONDICIONAL DE MADRE. MIS RESPETOS PARA TI MAMY. TE AMAREMOS POR SIEMPRE.
Tu Hija, JUANY y tus nietos
Angel, Emmalie, Magali y Junior.
