Judy Schultz Allen

October 3, 1939 – June 3, 2013
Born in Warrenton, Oregon on October 3, 1939, Judy Allen was the second of six children of Travis Shultz and Frances Reed. After high school, Judy got married, graduated from the Oregon College of Education, and had three children.
She was a pioneer in the computer industry in the early 1960s. She built, programmed and sold computers to classrooms, driving around the state in a bread truck converted into a rolling computer lab. In the late 60s she was program director for the new computer technology program at Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory in Portland. Judy earned her PhD in Psychology of Instruction from the University of Iowa in 1976. Her numerous publications include many academic journals, textbooks, and magazines.
Judy married the love of her life, Jack Allen, on April 18, 1981. Their marriage began on an 80-acre farm near Mist, Oregon, where Judy wrote a non-fiction account of her recovery from metastasized cancer, “The Five Stages of Getting Well”.” After 10 years on the farm, Jack and Judy moved back to Portland, where she founded A Course In Miracles Center, with her mother Frances Reed. In fifteen years as director of the Reed Miracles Center and the Healing Place (an attitudinal healing center) in Portland, Judy met and sponsored many healers, while studying the nature and practice of healing.
Jack and Judy moved to Manzanita in 2004, where Judy continued to explore the dynamics of physical, emotional and spiritual healing, published her novel “Looking Through Water,” and Jack continued to remodel.
Judy is survived by her husband of 32 years, Jack Allen, numerous children, grandchildren, and one great-grandchild. A celebration of life service will be on Saturday, June 22, at 3 p.m., at Nehalem City Hall. A slide show and memorabilia will be on display beginning at 2:00 p.m.
