Alexandra L. Valoras

Grafton – Monday March 19, 2018 witnessed the tragic, untimely death of the beautiful Alexandra Lee Valoras. She was a caring daughter, loving sister, and remarkably creative and gifted student. She brought joy into her conversations with her subtle wit and pointed, jovial sarcasm; she was consistently an absolute pleasure to be around. Alexandra was an engineering student at Blackstone Valley Technical High School in Upton where she was loved and esteemed by students and faculty alike. She excelled in all of her studies and extra-curricular activities: her passions were particularly centered around her stellar, nationally recognized work in engineering (SkillsUSA), and her involvement in Vex and First Robotics. She had recently taught herself Javascript and took great pride in coding robots. She also loved reading, her cats, spending time at the beach, and, amazingly, she even found time to volunteer as a group leader at the Grafton Community Barn.

She leaves behind two siblings, Emily and Nicholas, her parents, Dean and Alisya (Deveres) Valoras, her grandparents, Herb and Lee Bartlett and Patricia and Ernie Deveres, as well as many loving aunts, uncles, and cousins all of whom loved her very much and who miss her dearly.

And yet, as happy as she appeared, as supported as those who loved her made her feel, as promising as her life that lay before was, she was also hurting inside more than those who cared for her could see. It is the request of all of those who care for Alexandra that if you notice a loved one seemingly becoming more depressed or even merely change elements of their behaviors in even the smallest ways, that you reach out your tender hand by offering your care while also encouraging those individuals with the truth that there is help that is always available.

All are welcome to gather with Alexandra’s family Sunday March 25 from 3pm to 8pm at St. Nicholas Orthodox Church in Shrewsbury. Her funeral service will be Monday March 26 at 11:00am at St. Nicholas Orthodox Church. Burial will be at a later date.

Memorial donations in lieu of flowers may be sent to either St Nicholas Orthodox Church, 34 Gold St. Shrewsbury MA 01545 or The Grafton Community Barn 37 Wheeler Rd, North Grafton , MA 01536. A Book of Memories to share a favorite memory or story about Alexandra is available online at:
