Alison Beck Obituary
Alison Beck, 65, passed away on July 19, 2014 of natural causes at her home in Tucson, Arizona. She is survived by her son Oliver Saul of Tucson, Arizona, brothers Darsie Beck and Bard Beck of Vashon Island, and her nieces, nephews and second cousins.
Alison was born in Seattle July 26, 1948 to Alison Bard and Bernard Beck. She grew up on Vashon Island and Mercer Island. Graduating from Helen Bush School in 1966, she attended Mackinac College, and obtained a BA in English from the University of Washington in 1992 where she worked as Editor of the Newsletter for Institute on Aging. After several years in Todos Santos, Baja, Mexico, Alison bought a home in Tucson in 2004. She worked at St. Ambrose School and Temple Emanuel, and volunteered at the Tucson Botanical Gardens.
Her passions and delights were: her writing as published in Sun Magazine, brightly colored quilt making, remodeling her home and garden, her son, family and friends, and her devoted dogs.
Those who knew Alison remember her ability to see the humor in things and her memorable laughter. Inquisitive, she enjoyed having long conversations. Her artistic talents were expressed in her writing, quilt making, creating a home filled with color, and cooking and hosting for others.
