Lifelong Gold Beach resident Darla Allen passed away at her home in Gold Beach on May 18, 2012. She was 70. Darla was born in Gold Beach, Ore. on January 3, 1942 to Cecil and Betty (Ferguson) Barzee. Following high school, Darla attended beautician’s school in Coos Bay. She worked at the Empress Beauty Salon before opening her own business, Beautyland, which she would operate until her health forced retirement one year ago. She had many friends and loved operating her beauty shop for so many years. Darla enjoyed gardening. Though she didn’t want to initially, her family urged her to enter the Gold Beach Garden Tour. She also loved putting puzzles together, watching her soap operas, ice skating and dancing on television, and knitting hats and caps. She was a very independent woman and a great example to her family. Survivors include her son, Dean Headlee of North Bend, Ore., daughter and son-in-law, Darcy and Gary Schlottmann of Gold Beach, Ore., son, Shawn Headlee of Beaverton, Ore., grandson, Chad Schlottmann of Sunriver, Ore.
