The family of Alison Claire Fraser Dunham of Columbia, SC is deeply saddened by her passing on September 21, 2020. Beloved daughter of Drs.

And authoring the “Habitat Handbook” a resource for new home owners. ● While in Heidelberg Germany, Alison worked with the DoD Central Command facilitating the transfer of wounded warriors back to appropriate units in the USA. ● In DeRidder LA, she worked as Education Director of Beauregard Parish day-care and after-school programs – obtaining funding for and improving educational programs for children. ● She served as a certified FEMA Volunteer during the aftermath of hurricanes Katrina and Rita assisting evacuees with housing and FEMA applications. ● Since moving back to Columbia, she helped retired Vietnam Veterans navigate their medical care with the VA. We remember Alison for the good causes she dedicated herself to, the joy and love she gave, and her genuine, one-of-a-kind spirit that will forever remain in our hearts.
