FUNSTON, GA – Ophelia High Allen, 89, long time resident of Funston, GA, passed away on Sunday, December 24, 2023, at her residence while surrounded by her loving family.

A memorial service will be held at 3:00 PM on Wednesday, December 27, 2023, at Funston Baptist Church with Reverend Ron Shiver and Mr. Stacey Beacham officiating.  The family will greet friends at the church from 1:30-2:45 prior to the service.
