WARREN, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – Alexis Csehill, 65, passed away on Friday, February 12, 2021 at home after a courageous 13-year battle with cancer.
Alexis was born on June 3, 1955 (two months premature) in Warren, the daughter of the late Michael and Rachel Csehill. She came into this world a warrior and left us as a warrior too!
Alexis graduated from Warren Western Reserve High School in 1973. She earned a BS in Math at Malone College in 1977. In the early 80s, she continued her education by earning an associate Degree in computer science at Kent State Trumbull.
Alexis learned her work ethic from her parents. She worked in the summers, during high school, in the office at Warren Sanitary Milk Company. She worked at Copperweld in the Industrial Engineering office. The last 27 years, she worked in the accounts payable office at Trumbull Industries.
Lex was competitive. She was a member of the Warren Sanitary Milk bowling team. She was a self-taught tennis player and was a member of the first women’s tennis team at Malone. She entered the Tribune Tennis Tournament in the 80s and won a trophy in her age division. You could find her, with her sister, at Packard Park, Johnson Community Center, Kent Trumbull and Valhalla Indoor tennis courts.
Lex enjoyed many things. In warm weather, you would find her working outside in the yard, cutting the grass, tending to the garden, or flower beds. At any time, you’d find her in the kitchen cooking favorite family recipes or trying new favorites from magazines or friends’ recipes. She loved country music, the Oldies and Pops at the Ballfield concerts. When it was too cold to be outside, you’d find her reading, working on crochet, counted cross stitch and painting. Alexis was an avid sports fan. She enjoyed going to the Scrappers baseball games. She followed the Oakland Raiders, even when they moved to Los Angeles and Las Vegas! Lex was a great navigator on road trips with her sister, to Myrtle Beach, traveling to museums to view historical exhibits, going to festivals and visiting friends.
Alexis is survived by her sister, Debra; an uncle, Charles Csehill and cousins.
Besides her parents, many aunts and uncles and four cousins preceded her. What a homecoming that will be in Heaven!
