Allison Denise Bloom Obituary
Allison Denise Bloom January 7, 2004 - January 24, 2013 Allison attended Columbia Elementary School, where she was a Bell's Bulldog. She enjoyed learning and playing with all of her classmates. Allison also enjoyed doing gymnastics weekly at American Kids SouthWest since she was four years old, especially with coaches Chris and Danny. Allison took great pleasure that her Mom always worked in her class at school and made sure that her class and the school had the best of supplies, parties and support that could be arranged. Allison and her Mom also shared an appreciation of music and a love of singing together, especially Joan Jett. They also both enjoyed cooking. Allison would often help her Mom mix and bake cookies and cakes for her class. Allison also helped her Grammie cook pancakes and omelettes and prepare lovely dinners and desserts on the weekends. Allison took inspiration from her big sister Emily, who provided the guideposts and examples for Allison's life. Allison's report card was filled with As because of Emily's inspiration, assistance and guidance which supplemented that of their Mom. They were together nearly always, helping each other do their hair and nails and put together outfits. Allison felt like one of the big girls because Emily always included her and her friends in activities and parties. Last summer, Allison was very excited to have joined Emily for the first time in performing at the Gaslight Melodrama. Allison loved every animal she ever saw, including her cat Sunny, her turtle Tortoise and all of the dogs at her Grammie's. She always looked forward to visiting her Aunt Carol and Uncle Jerry, who have four dogs, many cats and a parrot to which she would feed peanuts. She planned to become a veterinarian. Allison went shopping with her Gramma Carmen almost every Saturday. They were the bargain hunting team of Bakersfield and seemed to know about every sale within three counties. When they finished shopping, they liked to take a relaxing walk (for Gramma) and ride (for Allison) on the bike path and feed the ducks. Allison and her Grampa Alan enjoyed coin collecting together. They would spend time looking through their books and talking about their treasures. They also played golf and other games together. She really enjoyed spending time with her Grampa and Winnie, especially when they would make her Thai dinners. Allison had fun playing with antique tractors, trucks and cars with her Gramma Kathy, Sister and Dad. She particularly liked her International T-6 Crawler which, much like her, started and ran well, but sometimes didn't stop very well. She was always up early on weekends and happy to ride along with her Dad in a truck to somewhere, or just poke around at her Grammie's. She always managed to find some animals to play with, or a pond to look in, or something interesting everywhere she went. Allison was really a ray of sunshine which shone into every life she touched. She was always cheerful and positive, finding the best in every situation. She has touched the lives of people on three continents through her travels and her participation in tractor shows and on the internet. Her family is saddened that we feel that her time with us was too short, but we are proud of the way she chose to live it and glad that her spirit and zest for life will live on with all of us who were enriched by having had her in our lives. No services are scheduled. The family suggests that those interested in remembering Allison may wish to make a contribution in her name to the local animal . www.bakersfield.com/obits
