In memory of Lexie Spriggs
#1 Jan 12, 2011
Diana, Thank you for writing such a heartfelt tribute about Lexie Spriggs and all that she contributed to our little 'Village' of Columbus.(it was little back then.)
She was a dear friend of mine and helped train my daughter Misty to also be a volunteer EMT for Columbus.
You're right, in those days the Village residents all worked together to hold fund raisers, cultural events and parades. They were wonderful years. The best time of my life was spent in Columbus.
I will miss Lexie very much and my synpathies go out to her daughter Kim.

Only in Columbus Valley since 2001 but Lexie was a big part of this area.
My most delightful memory was sitting in the Patio Cafe and listening to her experiences with the hummingbirds who flocked around her home.
She is truly missed. Thank you Diana for those memories of her early years... for the newcomers.
We were also touched by Kim's devotion to her mother over the years and staying by her side to help out.
Lexie gave us some wonderful memories!

I moved to Columbus at the age of six along with my 3 brothers and 2 sisters. There is no telling how many times Lexie was there to care for my family and I. I now have been gone for over 20 years but my best memories are also in Columbus (hard ones but good ones). My son (Matt) who is now 18, adored Lexie and was very close to her and Kim. She will be missed and appreciated by all(young and old).
