Obituary: Alyssa Armour
On the afternoon of May 5, 2020, the beautiful daughter of Wally “JR” and Fonda, Alyssa “Sis” Nicole Armour, surrounded by family at her home, went skiing into Heaven after fighting a courageous battle with ovarian cancer since April 2018. Born on May 12, 1989 in Canton, Ohio to Wally “JR” and Fonda (Sharpnack) Armour, she lived in Alliance most of her life. She enjoyed spending the last seven years living in Aspen and Snowmass, Colorado. Alyssa was a member of Union Avenue United Methodist Church where she was baptized and confirmed. A 2007 graduate of St. Thomas Aquinas High School, she also attended Akron University and The Ohio State University. She was employed at Pine Creek Cook House and Brunelleschi’s in Aspen, Colorado. Alyssa was an avid skier, enjoyed yoga, hiking, bicycling, hula hooping and most of all playing with her Morkie, “Leo”. Survivors include her parents Wally “JR” and Fonda L. Armour of Alliance, OH; her brother, Wally B. Armour; her sister, Abbey Armour; grandparents, Wally A. (Mary Lee) Armour; and several aunts, uncles and cousins. Preceding her in death were her grandparents, Morris and Carolyn Mercer.
