Alexa Natasha Uroskie passed away unexpectedly on February 20, 2023. Alexa was born in Virginia Beach, Virginia to Theodore Jr. and Susannah Uroskie on May 22, 1996.  She cherished her time as a Star of the Sea Catholic School student and after middle school, attended and graduated from First Colonial High School.  She attended James Madison University.  Alexa was most passionate about her Catholic faith and her family; whom she loved beyond measure.  Other passions during her short life included a love for dancing, art, fitness, the beach, and her friends.  Alexa also delighted in working with children in her spare time.  She recently married her husband Ricky and was expecting their first child Grayson.

Alexa is preceded in death by her paternal grandparents, Donna and Ted Uroskie, and her Godmother/Aunt, Margee Schiestl-Swarovski.

Alexa and her unborn child, Grayson are survived by her husband, Richard Jamie Smith, Jr and their loving dog Maverick.  Alexa is also survived by her parents, Teddy and Susannah; her brothers, Tripp, Matt, and Luke; her maternal grandparents, Bob and Peggy Goldsborough, and numerous other aunts and uncles and cousins.

Alexa possessed an overflowing creativity and always held the simple things in life near to her heart. She was a striking beauty with a warm, contagious smile that had a way of making everyone she met feel welcome. She also had a wonderful, light-hearted and goofy sense of humor. She loved spending time with her parents, her three brothers and her extended family, often entertaining them with silly jokes and songs; especially during family road trips.  Her warm laugh had a way of making others feel supported and funny. Along with her family and so many others who knew and loved her, she will be greatly missed by her dear and close friends and missed by all of the children she babysat. She will be remembered for her sweetness and kindness.

Alexa was diagnosed with bipolar disorder at the age of 19. She courageously worked daily to achieve mental stability. She was such a beautiful soul who battled each day to make her dreams come true. In lieu of flowers the family asks that you make a donation in her name to NAMI (The National Alliance on Mental Illness) Coastal VA or to the Star of the Sea Catholic School in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

An evening visitation and vigil will be held from 6-8p on Friday, 2/24 at Altmeyer Funeral Home. A Funeral Mass will held on Saturday, 2/25 at 2pm at Star of the Sea Catholic Church in Virginia Beach.  A private burial will take place at a later date at Star of the Sea Catholic Church. Arrangements are by Altmeyer Funeral Home.

2nd Corinthians 5:1 says: “Now we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands”. Alexa and Grayson are with God and Jesus in heaven surrounded by love. Their family and loved ones are left to lovingly remember them and endure the sadness of their departure. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
With Sympathy and Prayers,
Cathy Carpenter (a gym friend)
