Allison was born January 25th, 1966 in Idaho Falls, Idaho to Dee and Alice Mansfield. Allison was the fifth child, of seven. Her arrival was very exciting to her four older siblings, who had waited five years for her arrival. She brought so much light to her family. Her sweet spirit was evident right away. Allison was a generous spirit and had the ability to make everyone feel comfortable. She was such a delight to know.
Allison grew up in Shelley , Idaho, where she graduated from Shelley High School in 1984. Allison went on to study interior design at Brooks College of Design in Long Beach California, graduating in 1985.
Allison married Bill Bott in 1986. To that union came Elijah and McKenzie. Allison loved being a mother and her light just brightened more, being a mother. She was a devoted wife and mother. We will always remember her constant devotion to Mac when she was at Primary Children's Medical Center. Bill and Allison were later divorced, but remained friends in their devotion to raising their children.
Allison married Alex Martindale in 1999 . To that union was born her third " sunshine" Tarin. Allison loved motherhood once again. She was so proud of her three children.
Allison was an angel here on Earth and she will be missed. We know she is now an angel with her Heavenly Father, and will constantly be checking on her three "sunshines".
Allison kept an immaculate, beautiful home for her family and helped everyone she could do do the same. Allison held a special spot in her heart for her daughter-in-law, Stephanie, She always loved her like her own children and felt so fortunate to gain her as another daughter. Allison was loved very much by her family, and so many nieces and nephews were drawn to her beautiful smile and sweet spirit. Allison's home always seemed to be the gathering place for family get togethers, and she always made everyone feel welcome.
