Everybody loved her...
  • Born on November 20, 1993 in Rockville, Maryland, United States.
  • Passed away on February 23, 2019 in Baltimore, Maryland, United States.

The beloved daughter, granddaughter, sister, niece, cousin and friend, Alexandra Christine Carroll left this world unexpectedly on Feb. 23, 2019. She was 25 years old. Born in Rockville, MD on Nov. 20, 1993 to Bob and Whitney (Wilkins) Carroll, Alex grew up in Damascus, where she attended Damascus High School. She went on to further her education at the University of Delaware, earning an B.S. (with honors) in Kinesiology and Exercise Science. She then earned a B.S.N. magna cum laude from the University of Maryland Baltimore. She was an R.N. in the Cardiac Progressive Care Unit at the University of Maryland Medical Center.

We will always remember her infectious smile, enthusiastic attitude, and caring personality. Her presence in our lives will be sorely missed.

She leaves behind her parents; brother Parker; grandparents, Sandra and Bill Carroll, Gay and Jim Eadie, and Buck Wilkins; aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

A Memorial Service and Celebration of Life will be held Saturday, March 9 at 1:00 at Damascus United Methodist Church, located at 9700 New Church Street in Damascus, MD. The ceremony will be followed by a time for greeting and reflecting with friends, and sharing refreshments in the Great Hall.

I was deeply saddened to learn of Alexandra's death and would like to express my sincere sympathy to you and your family on behalf of the Medical Intensive Care Unit staff here at University of Maryland. Your child was highly respected and liked among staff throughout the hospital.

Alex, You will be truly missed. I will miss that beautiful that shined through that smile. I will miss our talks at lunch and how you were a vegetarian part time and that wonderful chicken dip you always make. You were a great nurse and a delight to work with. May your soul rest in eternal peace.

I was lucky enough to be Alex's preceptor on the CCU when she was a summer student nurse resident. She was smart, kind, and funny--brought me energy drinks as a gift on her last day! So sorry for your loss, and the loss of a fantastic and talented nurse.

I am so sorry for your loss. I had the privilege of having Alex during her senior practicum in the CPCU. She was such a delight as a nursing student. She had such a big heart and was so caring, always with a smile! She always wanted to learn and was such a hard worker. She is very missed. <3

I am still trying to make sense of this horrible tragedy. I am so sorry for your loss. Alex was an incredible coworker, a smart nurse with so much potential. She was always smiling with a laugh so distinctive it made me happy to hear. It is unfathomable that this could happen to an individual so young and so loved. <3 Katie Jones, NP at UMMC

I had the honor of working briefly with Alex in the CCU when she was still a student. My thoughts are with you in this time of great loss - this is truly tragic and I hope that good memories may bring you some peace.

I worked with Alex over the past few years at UMMC. Every time I walked through the unit, whether I was just passing through or seeing one of her patients, she always greeted me with a warm smile and a hello. Just an amazing personality, hard worker, and a nurse who had tremendous potential. Our thoughts are with you as you grieve during difficult times. Alex will be missed on inpatient cardiovascular medicine.

Bob and Whitney, I'm completely heartbroken for you and what you must be going through. Although I did not know Alex firsthand, she was in my son Dan's graduating class at Damascus. I can tell from all the outpouring of love here that it is my loss too to have never met her. She obviously made an indelible, positive mark on our world. Many prayers and love to you both. - Steve

Alex was a treasure. I loved her infectious smile that was always at the ready when she was hanging with Marissa. The picture stuck in my head is one of her with a big float in our pool, grinning from ear to ear. I will always remember her for the way she seemed to embrace life as an adventure. Kate Turner (Marissa's Mom)
