Allia Dean Stahl was born on October 1, 1931 in Altheimer, Arkansas to George Washington Henderson and Mary Ann Henderson.


She grew up and received her education in the communities of Tucker, Plum Bayou, and Wright, Arkansas. She and her twin sister graduated from Plum Bayou High School in 1950.


Her parents were cotton farmers. She and her siblings helped with the farming as they grew up. The majority of farmers at the time relied on the use of horses, mules and their own hands to produce a crop. Tractors and cotton-picking machines were a rarity on most farms. Her family weeded the cotton with a hoe and picked it by hand. Shortly before she left the farm her father bought a tractor.


Her older brother was a preacher for the church of Christ. When she was about seventeen he baptized her and her twin sister in the Arkansas River. She remained a faithful Christian her entire life. Not long after her marriage to Douglas Stahl he too became a preacher for the church of Christ.


The summer she and her twin turned eighteen they entered business school in Little Rock, Arkansas. After about 3 months they transferred to Pine Bluff, Arkansas where they finished the course. Both were accomplished in stenography (short hand) and typing. During her schooling in Pine Bluff, she met Douglas Stahl. The courtship lasted only about six months. They were married on April 29th1951 in Pine Bluff, Arkansas and her twin married Mr. Stahl’s best friend 6 weeks later.


Allia Dean and her husband had 5 children. Their second child, a son, died of meningitis at about one and a half years. Their youngest child, a daughter, was adopted at the age of 3 months.

She and her husband lived in 6 different states during his work as a preacher for the church of Christ. They moved west from Arkansas in 1953, eventually settling in Buffalo, Wyoming in 1981. Mr. Stahl retired in 2001 and they continued to make Buffalo their home.


Mrs. Stahl was always a help-mate to her husband in his work, teaching children’s Bible classes and serving in a secretarial capacity. She was a proficient typist and utilized her skills in the churches wherever she lived. She worked as a secretary for Mountain States Children’s Home in Longmont, Colorado during the 1960’s for a short time.


Her home was a place of hospitality to friends, members of the church, family and strangers. She and her husband took abandoned children into their home for a period and made arrangements for two of them to be adopted. She was known for her kindness and humility to all who knew her. Her main interests were the church, her family and friends. As a youngster, she enjoyed singing with her twin and playing the piano. In her later life, she like to fish and occasionally go with her husband on hunting trips. She did take one antelope.


Allia was 86 on October 1, 2017. She was admitted to the Amie Holt Care Center on October 5, 2017. Allia and Doug would have been married 67 years on April 29th of this year.


A church group would meet with Allia on Sundays to read from the Bible and sing church hymns. One of her favorite verses in the Bible, as well as that of Doug’s, is Romans 8:28 “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.”


She is survived by her husband, Doug; four children: Lewis and his wife Judy, of Clark, Wyoming; Marilyn Amill and her husband Ralph, of Billings, Montana; Philip and his wife Amber, of Gillette, Wyoming; and Mendy Nelson and her husband Ty, of Billings, Montana; six grandchildren; fifteen great-grandchildren; her twin sister Emma Jean Wallace and brother Bobby Ray Henderson, both of Pine Bluff, Arkansas; and sister Georgia Ann Nicholon of Lythia, Florida. She was preceded in death by her parents, four brothers, three sisters and one son.
