LaRae Ruth Allman, age 63, of Jefferson City, MO, passed away on Friday, June 5, 2020, at the University of Missouri Hospital in Columbia MO. She had been in failing health for the last few years.

LaRae was born on February 21, 1957 to Charles and Laura (McKay) Helmken in St. Paul, Mn. She lived in California as a child then moved to Unionville, Mo. with her family and graduated with the class of 1975 from Unionville High School. LaRae fulfilled her dream of becoming a Registered Nurse when she graduated from the Indian Hills Community College with a degree in nursing. She married Thomas “Lee” Allman in Jefferson City on May 23, 1999; he survives.

LaRae spent her life caring for others as a nurse’s aide and Director of Nursing in nursing homes, as a Critical Care Nurse at Boone Hospital in Columbia, Mo. and as a Nursing Home Inspector for the State of Missouri. She was a loyal employee, liked by her patients and appreciated by other workers as a kind and caring person. LaRae was a nurturing person whose passion was taking care of her children and granddaughter. She was a good listener who gave wise advice to others. She also loved to cook and could often be found trying a new recipe and cooking for family gatherings.

LaRae is survived by two daughters, Mary Beth Allman (fiancé Ronnie Veltrop) and Madeline Allman; a granddaughter, Sophie Veltrop; her mother, Laura Dixon and step-father, Shelby Dixon; her sisters, Rhonda Altiser, Becky (Steve) Swearengen and Mary (Sam) Frank; a brother-in-law, Charels Allman; a sister-in-law, Elizabeth Allman Day; and several nieces and nephews.

LaRae was preceded in death by her father, Charles Helmken, and her mother-in-law, Susan Barrett.

A private family graveside service will be held in Unionville, Mo. at a later date.

Memorial contributions are suggested to the charity of the donor’s choice.

Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Freeman Mortuary.

I worked with LaRae at Boone Hospital. It was a guarantee that she would have us laughing several times every shift! Thanks for laughs LaRae.

My deepest sympathy to Lee, Mary Beth, and Madeline. LaRae was a wonderful nurse and so nice to work with. She was so sweet and fun to be with. I think of our good times working together often. She loved her family! I loved her stories about your Sunday morning tea parties. I will hold her memory in my heart. Rest in peace, LaRae! Liz Kliethermes

I am so sorry to hear of LaRae's passing. She is my niece and I always cared for her. Although I was married to military men and we traveled a lot and were overseas over half of the time I still tried to stay in contact. One of my fondest memories is when I married my first husband, LaRae was our flower girl and was so cute. I only wish we could have been closer, however I know she is in a better place and not suffering. RIP
