Alexis C. Wadsworth


Alexis Cameron Wadsworth b. 9 October 1951, d. 13 March 2006

  • Alexis Cameron Wadsworth was born on 9 October 1951 in Bethesda, Montgomery County, Maryland.
  • Alexis Cameron Wadsworth died on 13 March 2006 at age 54.
  • The following appeared on 19 March 2006 in The Washington Post: Alexis Cameron (Wadsworth) died in the early morning hours of March 13, 2006, at VA Hospital Center after struggling with the insidious disease of multiple sclerosis for over 25 years. 
         Alexis was born at Bethesda Naval Hospital, and spent the majority of her childhood years in Bethesda, MD, graduating from Walt Whitman High School in 1969. Ms. Cameron then attended the Maryland School of Art and Design for one year, before deciding to pursue a career with computers. 
         Alexis was working as a Computer Analyst in Washington, DC, when she was stricken with multiple sclerosis. 
         Ms. Cameron lived with assistance until the MS had progressed to the point where she entered Cherrydale Nursing Home in Arlington, VA, four years ago. 
         The family would like to thank all the exceptional staff at Cherrydale Nursing Home, especially Director of Social Services Mrs. Faith Edwards, and Nursing Assistant Xanda, for the excellent professional and personal care that Alexis received there. 
         Ms. Cameron's personal physicians, Dr. Boland and Dr. Beselga, were extremely caring and professional for many years. 
         The staff at VA Hospital Center were high quality and nurses Melanie and Connie in the ICU in particular, provided the human touch and dignity that helped Alexis to the end. 
         Alexis Cameron was extremely intelligent, a computer whiz, and a very talented artist as well. Few could have walked a mile in her shoes, and done as well. 
         Alexis Cameron touched all that knew her and she will be sorely missed. 
         Ms. Cameron is survived by her brother Alex (Sandy) Wadsworth; and nephew Matt Wadsworth; cousins Bill Heasley, Sandra Pierce, Betty Pearson, Russell Parks, Jr. and Joan Wilt; and aunts Dorothy Heasley and Ruby Parks; and Duke and Carolyn Peacher. Services are private. Please make any contributions to your local chapter of the Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Alexis and I went through Bradley Elementary, North Bethesda Jr. High and then Walt Whitman.  She was a very sweet person.
