Allison Marie Ewert (Brackhahn), 54, of Olathe, Kansas, passed away on February 26, 2023 after nearly three years of fighting breast cancer.
Allison was born on August 29, 1968 to Robert Lester Brackhahn and Carol Christine Brackhahn (Cady) in Kansas City, Missouri. After graduating from Shawnee Mission West High School in 1986, she went on to study advertising at Kansas State University, graduating in 1990. While at KSU, Allison met her husband Kurt Henry Ewert. They married on November 15, 1991 and had three children: Emily, Abby, and Matthew.
It is an understatement to say that Allison was an amazing mom and wife. She cherished nothing more than family time. She was the hub of the family and a fantastic role model. Her love, support, and direction shaped her children into remarkable adults. During more than 31 years of marriage, her love and friendship with Kurt only strengthened. She brought out the best in the family and was adored by all. Her passing will leave many years of amazing memories and a void that will be felt forever.
The outpouring of messages, prayers, thoughts, and support during her cancer treatments are a testament to the many lives she touched. Allison cherished so many relationships, some going back to childhood.
Allison is survived by her parents Robert Lester Brackhahn and Carol Christine Brackhahn (Cady), sister Amy Christine Ellzey (Brackhahn), brother Michael John Brackhahn, daughter Emily Jeanette Henke (Ewert) (married to Jonathan William Henke in 2021), daughter Abby Kathryn Ewert, son Matthew Henry Ewert, and husband Kurt Henry Ewert. She was excited for the birth of her first grandchild, Charlie, due on April 9, 2023.
