Born December 3, 1947, in California at Coronado Naval Station to Earl Weathersby and Minna McBee Weathersby. Alexis lived all over the US, as well as Germany, but she considered Roxton her home. She told stories of the earthquake in Alaska in 1964, flying over Kansas in a tornado, walking to school in the snow uphill both ways, and being chased by a moose. To ask her, she was always the good kid. Alexis met the love of her life Memorial Day weekend 1969 and married Jennings Osborne June 21, 1969. Married for 52 years they endured the test of time. Alexis graduated from College in the early 80s. Teaching was her passion. Her love for her students still stands today. She cared for them as her own. Some were and still are considered family.
