Susan “Baboo” (Loftus) Allen, formerly of Chesterfield, died peacefully in her home surrounded by family in Fayetteville, Ga., June 3, 2019, at the age of 81.
Susan is survived by her sisters, Mary Hughes and Tina Peters; and her four children, Debra Stephenson, David Hinckley, Dianne Lee and Dawn Hinckley; nine grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her parents, Leo L. and Louis E. Loftus (Bigwood); her brother, Billy Loftus; and her husband, David Allan.
Susan was born on July 16, 1938, in Worcester, Mass., to Leo L. and Lois E. Loftus.
She lived and loved wholeheartedly investing in relationships, by trying new things even when she was afraid, by sharing laughter and by being her authentic self. She did her best. She was successful in raising all of us, being a Baboo, a Nana and a Grammy to many other families along our journey in life. She adored being a surrogate Nana to kids and dogs alike.
Her big worry in life was that nobody was taking care of the dogs ... in lieu of flowers if you so choose help Nana Susie take care of the dogs! She worked over the years with a few golden retriever rescues, she bred and raised dachshunds when we were children. While in Texas her community service efforts and furry grandkids came from Gold Ribbon Rescue.

A celebration of her life is scheduled for Friday, June 14, at 10:30 a.m. at Saint Philip Benizi Catholic Church, Jonesboro, Ga., a reception to follow at the Knights of Columbus Hall.
