Laura Marie Rivers Allison

March 6, 2020

Laura Marie Rivers Allison, 55, of Pensacola, Florida passed away Wednesday, February 26, 2020, after a brief battle with cancer. Laura is a graduate of Tate High School, class of 1983.

Laura and her larger than life personality were born in Pensacola, Florida on Friday, March 13, 1964, to Francis Lenwood Rivers and Rose Marie (Rivers) Rose. Laura loved and embraced being a Friday the 13th baby, therefore it only seems fitting to send her home on her day. Laura loved bowling, horseback riding, horse shows, crafting, time with family and helping others. She had a love for people; she never met a stranger.

She is preceded in death by her husband, Shayne Earl Allison Sr.; father, Francis Lenwood Rivers; grandparents, Roselie Diamond, Earnest and Laura Bray; Earnest and Mattie Rivers.

Laura is survived by her fiancé, Tim Ellis; children, Shayne Allison Jr., Elizabeth Asbury (Sean), Shannon Allison and Sean Allison; grandchildren, Brody Allison, Riley Allison, Kobe Allison, Desiree Asbury, Danica Asbury, Hannah Asbury, Isaac Gomez, Jaylen Brackin, Anastasia Allison; mother, Rose Marie Rose; step-mother; Gail Rivers; brother, Michael Rivers (Cathleen); sister, Nikki Johnson (Robert); brother, Eddie Rivers (Chari); sister, Missy Bryant (Jimmy); nieces, Erin Johnson, Olivia Johnson, Rachel Rivers, Allison Gillespie (Alex), and Melanie (Mike) Burnett, Carol Rivers and a host of aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Memorial Services will be held Friday, March 13, 2020, at 1:30 p.m. at Faith Chapel Funeral Home North with Pastor Jimmy Blackmon officiating.

The family will receive friends from 1 p.m. until 1:30 p.m. Friday, March 13, 2020, prior to services.

The family would like to extend a very special Thank You to Scott Lunsford and the entire personnel of the Escambia County Tax Collector’s Office for extreme generosity and kindness throughout Laura’s entire journey.
