Resided in Palmdale, CA
3/18/1984 to 6/28/2016
No star shone brighter, no smile was sweeter than Allison Goldstein. A graduate of Clover Hill Math and Science High School, Allison attended Clemson University on an Air Force ROTC Scholarship where she met her future husband. Following her passion for working with children, she became an elementary school teacher; first at Wayne County, North Carolina, then South Walton County, Florida and finally in Montgomery, Alabama. Allison's gift for inspiring children to learn and her leadership as a teacher won her the respect, praise and admiration from all of her peers. She was a wonderful Mother, a devoted wife, and remarkable daughter and sister, a special aunt to two nephews and a niece, five cousins and countless friends. Amidst all the joy and love she shared with the world, Allison silently suffered from postpartum depression. We take comfort in knowing with Christian certainty that she now rests peacefully in the loving arms of her Savior, Jesus Christ, fully healed and relieved of all her pain and burdens. Allison is survived by her loving husband, Maj. Justin Goldstein, her infant daughter, Ainslee Parker; her parents, David and Carol Mathews; sister, Mallory Hudson (Ryan); grandparents, Jean and Thomas Mallory, Dene Mathews and some very special in-laws, Lee and Linda Goldstein, Andrea Goldstein; brothers-in-law, Jamie and Jason Goldstein. Her family requests that in lieu of flowers contributions may be made to Ainslee's College Education Fund through USAA 529 via Ugift529.com, Code U0W-J1R. Visitation will be held at Morrissett Funeral and Cremation Service, 6500 Iron Bridge Rd. (Rte. 10), Tuesday, July 5 from 6-8 PM. A celebration of her life will be held at Branchs' Baptist Church Wednesday, July 6 at 11AM followed by a brief interment service at Sunset Memorial Cemetery.
