Freeda Carlile Allen, 74, of Timpson, TX, passed away Tuesday, March 10, 2015, in Nacogdoches, TX.  Funeral services was held at 2:00 PM, Friday, March 13, 2015, at Corinth Missionary Baptist Church, Timpson, with Bro. Mike Fodge officiating.  Interment followed in Corinth Cemetery, Timpson.

Born January 23, 1941, in Smackover, Arkansas, Freeda Carlile Allen was the daughter of the late Freeman and Hazel (Wilson) Eberlan.  Her family moved from Arkansas to Texas, and Freeda graduated from Timpson High School with the Class of 1959.

Her family was always the most important thing in her life.  She was definitely the backbone of her family.  Spending time with her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren gave her much joy.  Trust us when we say our family totally revolved around her.  Mrs. Freeda loved reading and travelling, especially to historical places.  She was an avid Dallas Cowboys fan.  Second only to her family was her love of collecting antique Early American Pattern glass butter dishes. Everyone that knew Freeda realized what a precious woman she truly was.
