Laura Allison St. John was born on Thursday, March 5, 1987, in Nashville, Tennessee. A 2005 graduate of Mt. Juliet High School, Allison went on to graduate cosmetology school and pursue her career as a Licensed Hairdresser. She was well rounded in sports and loved basketball, softball, and competitive cheerleading. During her softball catching career, Allison gained a special nickname and was known to many as “Hollywood.”

Deer hunting was one of her many hobbies. She had an appreciation for the outdoors and would rather be outdoors than anywhere else. Her sense of humor was like none other. She could quote any line from any movie that she had watched only one time with her photographic memory and make her family laugh until they cried.

Allison adored her little sister, who was bigger than she was, but she would fight for her regardless. Her children were her greatest accomplishment and she was a wonderful mother. Allison’s beauty ran deeper than her looks. She had a love for the Lord and that was the most beautiful thing of all. Her sweet spirit will live on in the hearts of those who knew and loved her.

In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully requests memorial contributions be made to either the Gideons International or any organization that supports drug rehab or domestic abuse.
