LITTLE DEER ISLE – Barbara Ann Allen passed away peacefully Nov. 30, 2013, at her home in Little Deer Isle. She was born Aug. 6, 1947, to Priscilla Tainter Allen and James Nelson Curtis.

Barbara served her community as a registered nurse at Blue Hill Memorial Hospital for 45 years. During her years of service with BHMH, she spent the majority of her time in the emergency room, where she touched the lives of so many people in the surrounding communities, and for this she will be gratefully and lovingly remembered by all.
A memorial celebration of her life will be held 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 7, at the Blue Hill Congregational Church. In lieu of flowers, a nursing scholarship will be awarded in the coming year in Barbara’s name. More details regarding this will be available at the memorial service next to the guest registry.
