Alexandra V. Coco, age 28, of Huntington Beach, CA and formerly of North Andover, MA, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, November 11, 2019. She was the beloved daughter of Peter M. and Clare (Geomelos) Coco.
Born in Stoneham, MA, Alexandra was raised in North Andover, graduating from Our Lady of Nazareth Academy in Wakefield, MA, class of 2009. She later received her certification from the Catherine Hines School of Esthetics in Woburn, MA. Filled with compassion, Alexandra always put family and friends first as she loved to be able to assist in any way she could, never looking for anything in return. Her love was not limited to people but also to animals. Alexandra spent countless hours volunteering at the Humane Society. She took great pride in the care she gave for animals and always enjoyed the peace she felt when spending those precious times with them. Alexandra worked as the chef for Resurgence Behavioral Health in Costa Mesa, CA, where she was a member of the staff.
A very talented makeup artist, she kept busy with this skill that allowed her to surround herself with people and gain many valued friendships. A strong and courageous woman, Alexandra faced challenges in her life with great strength and as a result, she was proud to be a sponsor with AA and she was in charge of running the Sunday meetings. In these latest years, she found more strength and peace within herself as she offered her time as a public speaker, knowing that if she could reach even one person, she had succeeded. Alexandra will be forever remembered for her radiant smile and for her great love of everyone.
Alexandra was the beloved granddaughter of Tessie (Orgettas) Geomelos. She was predeceased by her grandparents, Peter and Rita Coco, Peter Geomelos, and her uncle, Anthony P. Coco.
In addition to her parents, Alexandra is survived by her aunts and uncles, Donna and Pat Laudani, Michael and Catherine Geomelos, Lenny and Rose Geomelos, Rena and Chris Xerras; cousins: Christopher and Carly Laudani, Gregory Laudani, Janet and Deana Geomelos, Sophia and Peter Geomelos, Thomas and Peter Xerras, and her late beloved cousin, Tessa Geomelos; and many extended family members and friends.
Honoring Alexandra’s wishes, her parents will celebrate her life in private with the assistance of Cataudella Funeral Home in Methuen, MA. Peter and Clare would like to thank all of their family and friends for the tremendous outpouring of support in these difficult days. Alexandra’s family asks that you consider making a donation in her memory to St. Jude Children’s Research, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105.
