Alexi was born on August 17, 1995, in Aberdeen, SD, to Dan Clement and Barb (Friedrichsen) Boomsma. She attended Redfield School graduating in 2014.
Alexi found joy in life's most simplest things like walks in the park, van rides, fishing with her dad, listening to music, and hanging out in her pool during the summer. In 2006, Alexi had the most exciting trip of her life when she was granted a trip to Disney World as South Dakota’s 600th Make A Wish Child.
Alexi is survived by her father, Dan Clement, of Redfield; her step-father and mother, Ryan and Barb Boomsma, of Redfield; her sister, Cassie Clement, of West Des Moines, Iowa, who was her best friend; she loved her sister dearly; grandparents: Delores Clement of Orient, Gerald "Mugsy" and Sandra Schaefers of Polo, Doug and Peggy Boomsma of Frankfort; and great grandmother Bernice Solheim of Redfield. She is also survived by many aunts, uncles, and cousins and a special friend, Shirley Holt.
She is preceded in death by her grandfather, Louis Clement, great grandmother and grandfather, Martin "Mac" and Harriet Mowry, and great grandfather, Oscar Solheim.
In heaven, there are no disabilities and Alexi is now free to dance with her own legs. Even though we will miss those dances here on earth, she is now dancing with the angels. Until we meet again, Dolly Molly, keep singing and dancing. One day we will all dance together again, so save the last dance for Mom.
