LOUDON, Tennessee — Allison J. Daub, 30, passed away on Monday, Jan. 27, 2020 at the University of Tennessee Medical Center, Tennessee, due to complications from Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension, with her family surrounding her.
Allison was born on Jan. 8, 1990 in DeKalb, to Bruce and Debbie (Jordan) Daub. Allison grew up in Franklin Grove until her family moved to Loudon, Tennessee in 2004 where she graduated from Loudon High School in 2009.
She worked for Subway in Tellico Village for many years, then worked for Newell Brands for the last five years. Allison developed many heartfelt friendships while at both companies.
Allison’s smile and joy for life were contagious and her laugh was infectious. She cared deeply for everyone in her path and children always held a special place in her heart. Allison nurtured and loved on every child as if they were her own. She accepted and followed Jesus faithfully.
Allison had many passions. One of them being reading. She had a different book in every room of the house, in her car and read them all at once. Allison always wanted to live out the stories she had read. She also loved spending time with her family; off road rock climbing, boating, watching movies, playing cards and games. Allison’s heart was filled with adventure and she always dreamed of traveling to Ireland.
Allison’s last gift to this world was to be able to donate her organs and tissues, so that others may live on.
Allison was preceded in death by her maternal and paternal grandparents, Lora (Barnes) Jordan-Reinke-Anderson, Delores Jordan, Dave Reinke and Bill and Bea (Payne) Daub.
