On Wednesday, November 13, 2019, Alicia Beckmeyer Springer, loving mother of one, passed away at age 49 in Louisville, KY at Norton Hospital, from pancreatic cancer. She now rests in the peace and love of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Alicia was born on December 11, 1969 in Sandwich, IL to Gus Beckmeyer and Jerrylyn “Jeri” Johnson.
Alicia called many places across the country home during her lifetime, including Sheridan, IL, Las Vegas, NV, Nashville, IL, San Diego, CA,
St. Petersburg, FL, and Louisville, KY. In each of these places her contagious energy, warm heart and brightness touched the lives of many people. Same as her mother, Alicia worked primarily as a realtor.
She fully believed in the “work hard, play hard” motto; often closing a deal in the morning and ready to kayak, hike, paddleboard, or bike by afternoon with her OTG (Off The Grid) friends. Her vibrant, kind, and shining spirit and smile never faded during this battle and it will continue to shine through everyone that got to meet her.
Alicia especially loved her time spent in Nashville where she resided with her dad, Gus, and grandmother, Alice Beckmeyer, and very much enjoyed visiting with Beckmeyer relatives and her many good friends there. Alicia ran track and graduated from Nashville Middle School in 1984.
Alicia Springer is survived by her partner Jim Allen of Louisville,KY, her son Bryce Springer of Louisville,KY, father Gus Beckmeyer of Louisville, KY, step-father Stephen Johnson of Sheridan, IL, brother Charles Reed Beckmeyer and Angie Beckmeyer, nephews Christian and Peter Beckmeyer, all of Las Vegas, NV, brother Jesse Johnson and Mandy Johnson of Singapore, sister Kristina Johnson and Anthony Sutliff of Chicago, IL. Aunt Sandy Novak of Frederick, CO, Aunt Karen Biroshik of Sheridan, IL, Aunt Debby Beckmeyer of Morriston, FL, and Great Aunt Joan Beckmeyer Maxwell of Sarasota, FL.
She was preceded in death by her mother, Jerrylyn Johnson, her grandparents G.R. “Bob” Beckmeyer and Alice Reed Beckmeyer, Charles Johnson and Mildred Johnson, and Uncle Karl Reed Beckmeyer.
Alicia requested no formal funeral, but instead, a Celebration of Life. Details for time and place will be shared at a future date.
