Alonna was a very hard worker who was dedicated to her jobs. She was an animal rights activist and loved all animals, especially cats. Alonna enjoyed spending time outdoors working in the yard, tending to her perennials, and going mushroom hunting. She was excellent in the kitchen, baking wonderful cookies and desserts, and she was a fan of nostalgic TV. Alonna was one of a kind, who loved to have fun, be free-spirited and do things her own way. Above all, she loved her family and will be deeply missed by those who knew her.
