Barbara Elyse (Brown) Allegri

Barbara Elyse (Brown) Allegri, 73, of Kansas City, Missouri, went home to be with the Lord on the 30th day of March 2021, after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Barbara was born on November 16, 1947 to Milton R. and Irene (Shaw) Brown. She had one brother, Milton D. Brown. On October 17, 1981 she married Patrick Jerome Allegri, and also five stepchildren: Kathleen Sullivan, Susan (Ken) Schwartze, Linda (Erik) Avery, Samuel (Paula) Allegri and Timothy (Denise) Allegri; 8 grandchildren: Dennis, Patrick, Ellen, Martha, Megan, Luke, Anna and Abra; 7 great-grandchildren: Sofia, Henry, David, Reagan, her “namesake”-Adelyn Elyse, Lucy, Remy. She also leaves behind sisters-in-law Elizabeth “Buffy” Brown and Kathy Brown, nephews Christopher (Stacy) Brown and Scott (Gloria) Brown; and niece Amy (Matthew) Treadwell.

Barbara is preceded in death by her husband of 34 years, Patrick J. Allegri; parents Milton R. and Irene Brown, brother Milton D. Brown and niece Molly Dunham.

Barbara was a 1966 graduate of Southwest High School. She held a variety of jobs: window-dresser at Harzfeld’s KC, Account Representative at Wilson Sporting Goods, and worked at various medical clinics. She retired from the Internal Revenue Service in 2010 to care for her husband until his death in 2015.

Barbara had a great love for animals and had many cats and dogs special to her heart. She supported several animal rescue foundations and at one time worked at a veterinary clinic. She was an excellent cook and enjoyed making meals for family and friends, as well as sharing her many tasty recipes, some of which were her own creation. Barbara had a fantastic sense of humor and brightened the room with her animated stories and unique laugh! She made everyone she met feel important, and her attention to detail and memory of events was fascinating.

Barbara will always be remembered for her loving care, especially of her husband and stepchildren, and will be greatly missed by family and friends.

A memorial gathering will be held from 6:00- 7:00 PM on Wednesday, April 7, 2021 at Heartland, 6113 Blue Ridge Blvd., Raytown, Mo 64133 to view a live feed of the gathering.

    RIP my beautiful friend. We share treasured memories from our early grade school years @ J.C. Nichols. and we’ll beyond. Our friendship withstood the test of time. Although we were apart, we always picked up where we left off whenever we connected. I will never forget you and all the fun times that we shared over our life together. I taught you how to drive a car, you taught me how to laugh and have a sense of humor. The many meals that we shared and our mutual love of good food makes me smile. We took a train to California (to visit my future husband in San Diego), and met up with Al Hurt & Pee Wee. LOL. I could go on and on. I will never have a friendship so deep and full of fun as I had the pleasure of experiencing with you.
    See you on the other side. ?
