Allyson deeply loved her family, Judaism and Israel. She was a supportive and loyal friend, loved music and was an avid tennis player. Her personality was larger than life and lived with no regrets. Always compassionate to those without a voice, she was involved with the Big Brothers & Big Sisters program and championed "Stop the Suffering" for abandoned animals. Knowledge and education were of great importance to Allyson. She was a 1984 graduate of Walnut Ridge, attended Arizona State University and currently Harvard on line.
