  1. A Great Lady – A Dear Friend – She was loved and will be missed by many! Rest easy sweet lady!

  2. I met Cleo years ago at a Gold Star event, as the Blue to Gold Liaison. I always enjoyed visiting with Cleo at subsequent events, sharing Nursing stories and life activities. She was always warm friendly and very committed to her Gold Star sisters and supporting military service. I offer condolences from the Blue Star Mothers of Rampart Range .

  3. To the many family members and friends of Cleo Allgood: We are members of Christ the King Lutheran church, and we were so delighted and grateful to know Cleo there. We’ll never forget her welcoming face every time we would arrive and get our program with a smile and a hug! We had discussions of our sons’ commitment to the military forces. She was so committed to the OWLs group (“Older and Wiser Lutherans”), and we still have the prayer blanket the group made when Linda was going through cancer treatment. She will be greatly missed! Tom and Linda Leyba

  4. Heartfelt condolences to Becky. Bradley and the entire Allgood family. My now-deceased wife Patricia and I first met Cleo at Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas where her husband and I were students in the U.S. Army’s Command and General Staff College. We loved her from the moment we met. She was a joy to be around. We became fast friends with the Allgood family and remained so throughout our lives. Cleo will be greatly missed by her many friends. She had a special spirit about her that we will all miss. May she rest in peace, and may perpetual light shine upon her. Jim Van Straten
