The Chiropractic community continues to share the grief of Dr. Guy Riekeman, whose younger daughter, Alexis, died Thursday, Oct. 14. She was 20 years old.
Dr. Riekeman sent obituary information to Palmer Chiropractic College Friday afternoon, ending it with these wishes from the family: “Rest and peace and love, our sweet daughter and sister.”
A memorial service will be held on Monday, October 18th, at 2 p.m. at the Shrine of Remembrance in Colorado Springs. Visitation is from 1 to 2 p.m.
Alexis grew up in Colorado Springs where she was an athlete and graduated with honors from Cheyenne Mountain High School. She attended the University of Colorado at Boulder for one year before following her passion for art at the prestigious Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles, where she was a second-year student.
Alexis is survived by her mother, Dr. Deborah Raisner of Colorado Springs; her father and stepmother, Dr. Guy Riekeman and Annie Schmitt, of Davenport; her sister and family, Vanessa Helfrich, Jason and son Tyler of Davenport; grandparents, Roy and Marie Crafk, and Dr. Al and Ruth Riekeman.
In lieu of flowers, a scholarship fund is being established in the name of Alexis. Donations will be accepted in the President’s Office.
