Allison Christine Swienty

Allison Christine Swienty passed away September 29, 2015 in Kent, WA with loved ones by her side.

Allison was born May 25, 1989 in Mission Hills, California. She graduated from Kentlake High School in 2007 and went on to study at University of Washington, where she obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Social Science, with minors in Italian and International Economic Studies.

Allison had a passion for cooking, and worked in the restaurant industry, hoping to open a bakery of her own. She also loved to sing, and participated in choirs throughout her life. She was generous and loyal to a fault, and would do anything for a friend in need. In 2014 she was diagnosed with Ocular Melanoma. A gifted writer, she began blogging of her experience {}. Sadly, the melanoma traveled to her liver, and after seven months of struggle, she succumbed to the disease.

Her Facebook account has been memorialized. We hope that friends and family will post pictures and memories that we can then share at her memorial, which will be held November 21st from 2:00-5:00pm. More details will be posted on her Facebook page.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Providence Hospice, a non-profit organization that cares for the terminally ill. Website/link to make a donation:
