Alison Huggins Tew, formerly of Troy, passed away unexpectedly at the age of 36 on Thursday, November 25, 2021. A Celebration of Life will be held on Thursday, December 2, 2021 at The Huggins farm from 2:00-4:00pm.
Alison grew up in the Troy area and is a 2003 Charles Henderson High School graduate. She went on to earn a Bachelor of Arts in Social Science Education from Troy University and a Master of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction from Grand Canyon University. She went on to teach, inspire, and encourage children in the classroom for over 13 years. Alison was a loving wife and mother, passionate friend, and community advocate. She was a lifelong member of Collegedale Church of Christ.
Alison had a smile that inspired others to smile with her. She made friends instantly and was always ready to sit and chat. She was a “mother-sister-aunt-best friend” to anyone in need. Her love for people cannot be overstated. She was a beacon of warmth.
As the oldest sister of three, she was born to take charge. Her leadership skills could not be confused with bossiness. Alison was a fierce advocate for what she knew was right, and had a gift for making people feel seen and heard.
Alison left a legacy through kind, loyal, compassionate, and God-fearing sons.
Loving survivors include her husband of 10 years, Jarrad Tew; her boys, Cooper, Fletcher, and Owen; her parents, John and Gwyn Huggins; and her sisters, Lindsay Huggins and Elizabeth Whittington (Tyler). She is loved by many and is missed by all who knew her.
