Bridget Mary McAllister was born April 25th, 1985 in Kinnelon, New Jersey. Growing up in her beloved Fayson Lakes, she was a top swimmer for their team and would graduate from Kinnelon High School in 2003. She went on to join the Marines. After completing boot camp in Parris Island, she was discharged medically and shifted her focus to creative expression.
She graduated from Cosmix School for Makeup Artistry in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Eventually continuing on to Georgia, Bridget found a whole new role and perspective when she started a family and had three daughters whom she affectionately referred to as her girls. They were her proudest accomplishment.
To know Bridget was to know laughter. The kind that left you bent over in stitches. Her bubbly spirit lit the room, and her ability to animate a story was unmatched. Her humor was only surpassed by her wit, and her incredible capability to charm just about anyone she came across.
She was a lover of music and dogs. A solid B+ flute player, a terrible driver, and a life long consumer of any scent bath and body had to offer.
She was an exceptional writer with a penmanship to match. She loved history, art, the woods, the beach, and all things Ancient Aliens. She put 110% into all that sparked her interest, often getting carried away with craft projects or building mini water parks for her girls. She never made one good tattoo choice, but was forgiven by her unnecessary enthusiasm for them. Bridget naturally had a big heart. She was notorious for buying little gifts just because she thought of you. When you spoke to her, she had the ability to make you feel an instant connection. She was just that way with everyone, her aura was always light and infectious. Her persistence to overcome her struggles is to be commended. Knowing her meant loving her..and if you did, it was incredibly easy to do so. She will be sorely missed by all that knew her.
She is predeceased by her mother, and lifelong mate, Roberta. She is survived by her three girls, Emma Grace, Anna Claire, Audrey Rose and their father Emmett Cameron Eaton. She is also survived by her father Robert McAllister, her older brother Bobby McAllister, his loving wife Lindsay Schweitzer, and cousins Maggi Helmkampf, Josh Gottsegen, Jacqueline Boudria, Leslie Bryan and Lizy Gottsegen. Her legacy will carry on through her Uncle Kit Brazier, cousin Jill Brazier, and her lifelong best friends, Kim Pereira and Jenna Morello.
