We’ll Understand It Better By-and By
Alexia’s 18 years of life seems so short-lived, but, the joy, light, and happiness she brought into our lives were exactly what we needed, and when we needed it most! Alexia was our MIRACLE from God! She had so many nicknames: Suga-Wuga, Juicy, Potato Chips, Fat Thighs, Baby Girl, Lexi, Lexi Wex, Grandma’s Sweet Suga, Lexi Lou, Sweet Girl, Auntie’s Chi, My Favorite Niece, Lou Ann, Lex Luger, Anchie-Canchie, and Doodlebug, to name a few. From the time of her conception until her last breath, God knew! He knew her alpha and her omega. As hurtful and devastating as her departure is, Alexia completed her assignment. And, God, we humbly submit to Your Will.
Alexia attended elementary schools in Valdosta, Georgia and Titusville, FL. She always excelled in school (elementary, middle, high school, and college). It was instilled in her at an early age that she was a “Winning Washington,” and she took it and ran with it. She was inducted into the National Honor Society, graduating with a 3.9 grade point average. All through high school, Alexia talked about and was solid on the fact that she would be attending Bethune-Cookman University (her Dad’s Alma Mater) upon graduation from high school. She was even accepted there. Then, around April of her senior year, she decided that she wanted to attend Florida Agricultural Mechanical University (FAMU). She applied, got accepted into their IGNITE Program which included her attending classes at Tallahassee Community College.
Alexia, even at her young age, had a strong work ethic. She started working on the Food Truck with her Auntie Kila and Uncle Doobie at age ten, working summers and school breaks. Throughout high school, she always worked various jobs. She was a full-time student and worked as a CNA around her classes. She started a part-time business while in Tallahassee, “Locs by Lex,” earning extra money to be used for her expenses. She had great plans for her future. She was organized...always planning her days, weeks, months, and years. But God!
She was a member of First Community Church of Palmetto and attended Watson Temple Church of God in Christ while in Tallahassee.
Her cherished memories will remain alive in her loving mother, Lucreatia Enchautegui (Maurice Welch); her brothers: Tyren Burrell and Tyrese Burrell; her loving and devoted grandmother, Karyn Washington; her grandparents, Ramon and Rebecca Nock; her grandmother, Rhonda Cribbs; her great-grandmothers: Mother Annie (Great) Gore and Carolyn White Chivers Crawford; Aunts: Akila Boyd (Auntie/Mama), Kalynn Nock, Shelli Nock, Faye Jones (Alfred), Bertha Ford (Willie), Rosetta Johnson, Lydia McNeal, and Anita Lewis. Uncles: Ryan Boyd (Uncle Daddy), Michael Lowe, Sr. (Pam), Garry Lowe (Paula), Corey Nock, Al Washington (Monica), Larry Washington (Linda), Wayne Washington, George Woodie (Bridgette), Darryl Woodie, Carmen Johnson, and Roosevelt Johnson. Godsisters/Cousins: Chekera Patillo (William), Typhani Lane (Rodrick), Raven Cokley, and Cheyenne Scott. Alexia had many friends and was loved by so many that it is impossible to name them all. She leaves a host of other loving and sorrowful family and friends.
