Allison Anderson

July 6, 1988 — May 20, 2021

Allison (Ali) May Anderson, 32, of Seattle, Washington passed away on Thursday, May 20th 2021 at her perfectly organized, stylish downtown apartment which she shared with her beloved cat Ellie, also known as Elle Belle.

She was born on July, 6th 1988 in Fergus Falls, Minnesota to Dean and Debra (Sillerud) Anderson. Her older sister Ashley was her first best friend.

Allison loved travel and observing new cultures, and did so often, sharing her light with so many amazing parts of the world. With each new adventure, she came back even brighter and bolder than before. She made fast friends in locals, kids and animals alike, because she loved to chat like her poppy Deano, but mostly it was because all creatures were naturally just drawn to her pure, loving spirit.

Ali was a business owner of a quaint pizza parlor with her sister in First Hill of Seattle and was an immediate fixture of the tightknit neighborhood. Her regular guests became fast friends, and some even family, and it was all because she was a natural hostess that made you want to be there, with her. She made a challenging job look effortless, and always with her sparkling smile and adorable outfit.

In her free time, Allison enjoyed being in the sun, cooking comfort food, dining like a queen, shopping like her mama, fishing like her papa, watching trashy television or documentaries, and Face-Timing or spending time with countless loved ones. She will truly be missed by all, never forgotten, and forever young and beautiful.

Preceding her rising soul were her great grandparents Erwin and Florence (Nelson) Johnson, grandparents Andrew and Elda (Hogue) Carlson and Kenneth Sillerud. She leaves behind her grandmother Jolaine (Johnson) Anderson; her parents Dean and Debra Anderson; sister Ashley (Mauricio) Herrera; brother-in-law Lam Chu; boyfriend Maxwell Borthwick; aunties Denise (Phil) Nelson, Diane (DuWayne) Traut, Dawn (Wayne) Schuett; uncles Marlie (Sissy) Anderson, Daniel Sillerud and David (Brandi) Sillerud; cousins Alisha (Brian) Helgeson, Kelsey (Cole) Helbling, Alicia (Jason) Mansur, Justin Schuett, Jesse (Stephany) Schuett, Danielle Schuett, and the twins Jordan and Dillon Sillerud; second cousins include Edy, Abe, and Drew Helgeson, Emma Schuett, Sawyer Helbling, and Ava Mansur; In-laws Tom (Toi) Borthwick and Kelly (Damon) and daughter Isla Maletta; and many friends and loved ones she cherished so dearly.
