Alexia Karon Holden

Alexia Karon Holden, age 19 of Nixa, passed away October 27, 2021. She was born September 20, 2002 in Springfield, the daughter of Scott and Michelle (McMurtrey) Holden. Alexia was a student at Missouri State University, majoring in elementary education. She brought so much love & joy to our lives and all those who were around her. She had such a big loving heart and cared deeply for her family and friends, always there to give advice, encouraging and supporting others. Anyone who knew Alexia knew how much she loved creating and posting videos. She loved the outdoors, hiking, swimming at the lake and vacationing at the beach. Alexia met her boyfriend Garrett while they were in junior high and started dating in their sophomore year. Afterwards they spent most of their time together. She was always up for an adventure, whether it was rock climbing, hiking or traveling. She was continually looking for a new experience. Sweet, caring, gentle, and loving are just a few words to describe her personality. Beautiful, resilient, and tough, she faced all challenges in her life head on. Alexia brought joy and laughter wherever she went. Her selflessness will continue to bring joy and hope to other’s lives through her decision to be an organ donor. Alexia will be missed every day by her parents, Scott and Michelle Holden of Nixa; her brother, Jack Holden of Nixa; her grandparents, Gerald and Opal McMurtrey of Hollister and Kent Holden of Golden; her uncle and aunt, Greg and Missy McMurtrey; cousins, Ashley and Justin McMurtrey and Riley and Conner Holden; her boyfriend, Garrett Whitman; and her great grandmother Granny Dee. We know Alexia is now with her grandma, Karon Holden and uncle, Sean Holden and is loved here on earth as well as in heaven. Visitation will be from 5:00-7:00 P.M. Friday November 5, 2021 at Adams Funeral Home, Nixa. Funeral service will be held at 10:00 A.M. on Saturday, November 6, 2021 at North Point Church, Nixa, with Pastor Brad Fox officiating. Burial will follow in McConnell-Bledsoe Cemetery, Nixa.

We heard about your loss of your beautiful daughter Alexia in our Life group from someone connected to your family. Our thoughts & prayers are with you that God will provide comfort as He has been faithful to strengthen and sustain us in the unexpected loss of our 21 year old daughter (Rachel) over 6 1/2 years ago on January 21, 2015. We do not grieve as those without hope (as the apostle Paul said) - but we do grieve. You will never get over it, because you love your child and they are always your child, but you learn day by day how to live with it. Your daughter sounds like an amazing young lady and that she touched many lives and hearts in her short time on earth. She will never be forgotten by those who love her. Prayers for your family. "I will lift up my eyes to the hills - from whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth." Psalm 121:1-2
