Teresa Allen

October 8, 1955 – November 21, 2023

Teresa “Slim” Allen, beloved mother, Nana, sibling, and friend, passed away on November 21, 2023, in Richmond, Virginia. She was born on October 8, 1955, in Richmond, VA, to Ransom Allen and Elma “Rea” Allen. Teresa was the life of the party, always dancing, singing, and bringing joy to those around her.

Teresa was preceded in death by her grandson, Temetrius “Doodie” Coker. She is survived by her children, Tyree Allen, Nicole Allen-Sumler, Lorri Allen, and Larry Allen. She also leaves behind her cherished grandchildren, Malaysia Allen, NiKyah Day, Demonte Sumler, Larry Allen Jr., Devin Sumler, Nytayia Allen, Diamond Sumler, and Michael Grant-Allen; her brother, Charles “Sonny” Thompson; she shared a special bond with her dear friend, Wayne Green; and a host of nieces and nephews.

In her free time, Teresa enjoyed playing solitaire and eating a box of oatmeal. These simple pleasures brought her comfort and relaxation. You could find her on the back porch talking to everybody as many in the neighborhood called her “Ma”

A private service will be held to honor Teresa’s life. Arrangements are being handled by Affinity Funeral Services Richmond Chapel.

Teresa Allen will be deeply missed by all who knew her. Her vibrant spirit, love for life, and infectious laughter will forever remain in our hearts. May she rest in eternal peace.
