Alexis McDaniel

May 20, 2007 — April 30, 2012

Alexis Paige "Lexi" McDaniel Alexis Paige "Lexi" McDaniel, 4 year old daughter of Paul Douglas and Angela D. Orris McDaniel II of North Lewisburg, died Monday, April 30, 2012, at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus from complications related to Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA). A beautiful little girl, Lexi brightened the lives of everyone who knew her and loved being surrounded by her family and friends. She enjoyed big pink dresses and Dora the Explorer, the family's pet snake, and petting horses, but was not a fan of Barbie or fairies and petting cows and would be quick to alert you of her displeasure. She possessed a courageous spirit and will be missed beyond measure. The family takes comfort in knowing that Lexi shared the gift of life as an organ donor through Lifeline of Ohio. Lexi was born May 20, 2007, in Marysville. She was preceded in death by a maternal grandmother, Marsha Drumm Orris, and paternal grandfather, Dick Rutherford. Along with her parents, she is survived by 3 brothers, Jesse, 14, Marcus, 8, and Colin, 7, maternal grandfather, David Orris, Delaware; maternal grandparents, Tonda and Mike Hoffman, Marysville; paternal grandmother, Connie Rutherford, Lewis Center; paternal great-grandmother, Ruth Rutherford, Delaware; 2 uncles, Christopher Sergent, Delaware; and Joshua Sergent, Sunbury; an aunt, Samantha (Domonic) Marchio, Sunbury; 2 step-uncles, Brian Rutherford and Shawn Rutherford, each of Delaware; godmother, Mareda Brewer, North Lewisburg; godfather, Jerry Moran, Cardington; and caregivers, Ann Carnes, Bellefontaine; and Sarah Leasure, Marysville. Friends may call from 5-7 p.m. on Friday, May 4, 2012, at Mannasmith Funeral Home, Marysville, where the funeral service will begin at 7:00 p.m. Paul Reynolds will officiate and burial will take place at a later date at Oakdale Cemetery.
