In Loving Memory

Stevens, Alison M.

Alison M. Stevens passed away January 31, 2024, in Boston, MA at the age of 43 after a courageous and inspirational 8 ½ year battle with metastatic breast cancer.  She is survived by husband, Ryan Stevens of St. Louis, MO; daughter, Madison Stevens; son, Logan Stevens; parents, Paul and Maryrose Hagenbach of Decatur, IL; as well as many extended family members, close friends, and colleagues.

Alison was born in Decatur, Illinois and attended Our Lady of Lourdes, Stephen Decatur High School, and Butler University where she earned a Doctor of Pharmacy degree.  She subsequently completed two pharmacy residencies in Indianapolis, Indiana and Burlington, Vermont.  After settling in St. Louis, Alison’s dedication, professionalism, and leadership led to long lasting impacts and relationships with colleagues and pharmacy students through her work at the University of Health Sciences & Pharmacy in St. Louis (St. Louis College of Pharmacy), Missouri Baptist Medical Center, and St. Lukes Hospital.  She also enjoyed working with and meeting new people with her “fun job” at Evereve.

Alison was an amazing wife, mother, puppy mom, daughter, and friend.  Her smile, positivity, and hugs will be a lasting memory for so many.  Alison loved spending time and traveling with her family and friends as much as possible.  Her favorite travel destinations included Napa, Hawaii, Disney World, and wherever a Disney cruise ship was going.  Alison was also an avid Butler basketball and Notre Dame football fan and spent most fall Saturday mornings curled up with the dog watching College GameDay.

  14. I was incredibly fortunate to have the opportunity to have been a student of Dr. Stevens. Not only did she play a crucial role in my success as a pharmacy student, but as a future pharmacist as well. Beloved by so many students for her compassion and empathy. I will forever remember her intense passion for teaching, dedication to the pharmacy practice, and glowing smile.

  15. Allison was my cancer “twin.” Our plastic surgeon arranged for us to meet because we were the same age, looked alike, and we both maintained a positive attitude about our situation as we battled breast cancer. Allison was always so kind and encouraging to me, and she truly had the best smile ever. I am honored to have known her.

  16. Maryrose and Paul,
    You and Allison’s family have been in my thoughts and prayers more intently since I heard of her leaving this world for her new life with God. So many had prayed for her healing on this earth and now she is receiving it in heaven. I thank God for Allison and all the ways she shared God’s love. She lived life to the full despite her health challenges. May she experience the fullness of God’s love and peace in her new life with God. And, may you, Maryrose and Paul, be strengthened and comforted by God’s healing love and peace. I cannot imagine how difficult her death must be for you . I will continue to pray for her, for you, her children and husband.
