August 22, 1982—July 14, 2019

Allison (also affectionately known as Suzannah) grew up in Florence, South Carolina before heading to College of Charleston. After graduation, she moved to Alexandria, Virginia which led her to a career path with the Department of Homeland Security.

Allison was a loving daughter to Debra White Runion (Damon) and Norman Jones (Lynn). Outstanding sister to Steven Jones (Ashley), Benjamin White (Melissa) and Douglas White (Kaitlin). Faithful spouse to Todd Watkins. Doting Aunt to Georgia, Caroline and Hudson. Allison was a devoted and caring friend and diligent working professional. She is survived by her adoring grandmother, Margaret Williamson of Florence, as well as many aunts, uncles and cousins.

Allison was genuine, vivacious, positive and generous. She was quick to smile and laugh, and loved her family! She enjoyed pets, comedy, and traveling.

Allison kept her positive outlook with her ready sense of humor throughout her two year battle with melanoma cancer. She is an inspiration to us all. She navigated this journey with great courage and grace before resting in the arms of Jesus.

Debra, I had no idea about Allison's cancer. I am so sorry to hear of her passing. What a precious person she was. I know that by now, she and Justin are laughing and talking again and that brings me joy. I also know the pain that you are feeling right now, pain that only those of us who have our children go before us know. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. Pam Clemons
