Alison Ann Lutterman was born on April 11, 1977, at the hospital in Fairmont, MN, the daughter of Gary and Linda (Maday) Lutterman. Alison received her education attending school in Fairmont and graduating from Fairmont High School with the class of 1995. She would go on to further her education attending the University of St. Thomas where she graduated Cum Laude in 2001 with a Biology Major.

Alison loved science and that love led her to a job with MedTronic in Minneapolis where she worked as a scientist. While there, Alison worked in research in the Cardiology Dept. working on medical devices for surgery and was granted a patent for a medical device she helped to develop. Alison then went on to work for Wuxi App. Tech. in their research labs for medical equipment. After receiving a diagnosis of brain cancer, Alison worked throughout the Twin Cities as an optometry assistant while undergoing cancer treatments.

Despite living with cancer, Alison wasn't one to let life pass her by. She began lifeguarding at Gomsrud Park in Fairmont as well as the indoor pool in high school. In her college years, she was a lifeguard at St. Thomas College pool in addition to spending multiple summers in Alaska working at a salmon cannery in Dillingham as well as working at a resort in Denali Park. Alison loved to travel and brought back many fond memories of her trips to Italy, Germany, and Australia where she studied abroad and got to deep sea dive the Great Barrier Reef. Closer to home, Alison could be found camping, hiking, and backpacking. She loved to help others, and enjoyed volunteering with homework programs. Her zest for life and love of adventure will be greatly missed by those that loved her and called her a friend.
