Lexi’s Memorial Service Announcement

This is a memorial service announcement. As most of you know, Lexi,our talented and precocious 13-year-old miniature schnauzer, returned to her Creator on September 4 after a three month bout with cancer. She was a much-loved Church Dog at St Luke United Methodist Church in Stuart Heights, after also “working” at St. Timothy’s and St. Paul’s Episcopal Churches and the Ochs Center for Metropolitan Studies. As such, Pastor Evelyn offered to hold a service to celebrate her life. All are invited to St. Luke this Saturday (September 24) at 10:30 a.m. The service will be streamed live and also – hopefully – recorded. It will either be streamed here or on http://www.stlukechatt.org.

Many locals know Lexi from her role as Toto in three productions of Wizard of Oz. She starred in her first performance in 2006 with Kim Jackson at the Theatre Centre, with a record attendance of 7,000 over 6 weeks and 26 performances. Her last turn on the boards was the fall of 2014 in the Jonathan Humble production at the Colonnade. For 10 years she brought joy to children as a therapy dog at TC Thompson. She epitomized what Mother Teresa said – ‘Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.’

I also want to say a special thank you to Samantha and Beth for coordinating the Treats for Lexi Tribute as well as all who joined in to make it a special day. Seeing all the wonderful posts made me cry and smile, and remember once again how much she was loved by everyone.

Several people have suggested I still post on Lexi’s blog. To that end, I will still post Memory Monday’s once or twice a month, as well as special posts when one of her friends or relatives – such as Piper, Ella, Riley, and Gracie – come to visit. Piper is with us now all the way from Louisville, KY, so there will definitely be some blogging going on soon.

Wishing you continued blessings from the furry (and feathered) ones in your lives.

  2. When Kyla passed Dec 2014, we kept the blog going. We would have missed our friends and they would have missed us (maybe). We anticipated Kyla’s passing and got Kali. It’s been easier with Kali than if we didn’t have her. I’m certain that there is a Schnauzer rescue and a dog who needs you.

    1. Yes, the day and the dog will come, but not quite yet. You know someone loves you when they give up their heart-dog schnauzer for a month just because you need him more. ❤ (We've got Piper right now.)


  3. She accomplished so much and touched so very many. Indeed she deserves the memorial service and your church is very kind to recognize its special, 4 legged parishioner. Blessings. Woof! Love, Maggie and Mom

  5. We think of you and Lexi often and though I have known your blog for such a short time it feels in our hearts much longer. We will definitely try and find the stream and watch.
