Frances Marion Allen was born in Dallas to Drs. James Walter Allen and Daisy Emery Allen, who practiced medicine in Content, Texas. Shortly after the death of her father in 1914, her mother moved Frances and her sister, Sheila Emery Allen, to Fort Worth. Dr. Allen joined the faculty of Fort Worth Medical College as a clinical instructor in pediatrics. Later, Dr. Allen entered private practice until her death in 1958.

It was from her parents that Frances Allen developed and nourished artistic and tenacious tendencies that played a great part of her life.

Following her educational pursuit in sociology at Texas Christian University and a baccalaureate degree in anthropology and sociology from the University of Texas at Austin and a master's degree in the field of social work from Tulane University, she embarked upon a career in social service that would continue until her retirement in 1967.

During her career and after completion of an advanced certificate from Smith College, she assumed positions in public welfare in Chicago, Dallas, Austin and Lubbock, with the final assignment in Fort Worth, where she served for 19 years with the Child Guidance Clinic of Tarrant County as the psychiatric social worker and associate director.

Throughout her life, Frances Allen demonstrated interest in worthwhile and philanthropic projects that would benefit Tarrant County. She became an influential member of the League of Women Voters of Tarrant County, serving as vice president from 1968 to 1971 and as a member of the National Association of the League of Women Voters.

One of the most noteworthy contributions to promote civic pride was in the area of conservation. She served as secretary of the Fort Worth Conservation Council, promoting activities in the field of research and preservation of the local history of Tarrant County.

She was an active member of the Texas Historical Foundation, the Texas Oral History Association, Tarrant County Historical Society, Fort Worth Genealogical Society and the White Settlement Historical Society.
