Alison Bryan Tomsula Booher went to be with the Lord on December 29, 2023, surrounded by family and friends, after nearly two years of a strong, determined battle with cancer. She was born July 16, 1973, in Ft. Walton Beach, Florida, and a few weeks later went to live with her adoptive parents, Beth Williamson Tomsula and Joseph Tomsula.
She spent several years in Panama City, Florida, and Katy, Texas, before moving to Galveston, where she graduated from Ball High School.
She married Jason Booher, a member of the U.S. Coast Guard, and they moved around the country. She worked a variety of jobs until they agreed that she would be a stay-at-home mom to their children, Chloe and Luke. She loved being a mom and her family was important to her. She was so proud of all that they accomplished.
Alison wanted to be fit and active and enjoyed being outdoors. One thing she and her family enjoyed was mountain biking together. She liked camping despite her first experience in which they heard bears around them while a thunderstorm tore their tent apart, and she looked forward to more camping trips. One of her favorite places to be was on the back porch of her parents’ home in Galveston.
Alison was kind, funny, and compassionate, and always curious. She loved being able to look up anything and everything on the Internet, and was constantly asking questions. She loved passionately and heartily and was particularly fond of all things romantic. She had strong ideas about how certain things should be done, including laundry. A few days before her death, she was seen running to the laundry room to check that her mother hadn’t put the wrong textures together in the wash.
Predeceased in death by her mother-in-law, Karen Booher, she is survived by her husband, Jason Booher, and their children, Chloe and Luke. She is also survived by her parents Beth and Mike Shriner and Joseph and Donna Tomsula; brother and sister-in-law, Michael and Melanie Tomsula, and their children, Ava and Weston; father-in-law, Danny Booher; brother-in-law, Mike Booher; step-brothers, Wayne, Matt, and Erin Shriner, and their families; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins. She also leaves behind a host of wonderful, devoted friends, some of whom have been in her life since early childhood. The family would like to especially thank her aunt Jan Golden, and friend Merri Edwards.
Visitation will be January 11, 2024, at 10 A.M. at West Isle Presbyterian Church, 13724 Stewart Road, Galveston, followed by the memorial service at 11:00, conducted by Pastor Chris Bower.
The family asks that donations be made to a charity of your choice.
