Allison ‘Alli’ L. Mehringer, 34, Noblesville, died March 31 at Lutheran Hospital of Indiana in Ft. Wayne. She was born Oct. 9, 1981 to Dennis L. and Brenda M. (Klink) Cropper in Indianapolis.
Alli was a 2000 graduate of Hamilton Southeastern High School and a 2004 graduate of Purdue University where she earned a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. While at Purdue she was a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma; and continued as an advisor for her sorority at Butler University. She taught fourth grade at Harry S. Truman Elementary School in Webb City, Mo. before becoming a full-time, stay-at-home mom. She endlessly volunteered at her children’s Montessori preschool and Noblesville schools. Alli embraced each role of her life – wife, daughter, sister, aunt, cousin and granddaughter; but the role she treasured most was being a mama.
In addition to her parents, she is survived by her husband, Dustin Mehringer; her three children, Mallory, Spencer and Elliott Mehringer; sister Abby (Ben) Grieshop; nephew Oliver Grieshop; grandmother Arlene Georgiadis; mother and father-in-law Anne and Dennis ‘Bucket’ Mehringer; sisters-in-law Anden and Erika Mehringer; aunts and uncles Dennis and Margie DeRosa, Mike and Debra Klink, Jim and Mary Cropper and Hubert and Jeannie Applegate; and life-long friends Suze and Andrew Couchon.
She was preceded in death by her brother-in-law, Luke Mehringer, her cousin, Zachary Klink, and her grandparents, Mike Georgiadis and Wilburn and Esta Cropper.
