Alexa Jane Liddie passed away unexpectedly on May 24, 2021, at the age of 30.

Alexa was born to proud parents Tammie and Edward Liddie on December 16, 1990, at Penrose Hospital in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Full of compassion, adventure and fun, Alexa was a notorious prankster with an infectious smile and a kind heart. Her younger brother, “Little Eddie,” idolized Alexa, and she was cherished by her family and friends.

Coached by her dad at the U.S. Olympic Training Center, Alexa was a world-class judo athlete. She competed nationally and internationally throughout her life, winning multiple junior and senior national titles in addition to earning a spot on the senior world championship team. She was the recipient of many prestigious awards, including multiple Colorado Judo League Female Athlete of the Year honors. After retiring from competition, Alexa worked for USA Wrestling while pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs.

Alexa enjoyed competing, traveling and, more than anything, spending time with the people she loved. A friend you would want in your corner, she was someone you could call anytime, for any reason, who went above and beyond for others.

Alexa is survived by her loving parents, Tammie and Edward Liddie; brother, Eddie Liddie; uncles, Tim and Billy Travis; grandmother, Arlene Liddie; and uncle, Claude Liddie. She is preceded in death by her grandparents, Frances and Max Travis, and Edward Liddie.

Alexa’s viewing will be held at Shrine of Remembrance Funeral Home located at 1730 East Fountain Blvd., Colorado Springs, CO 80910, on Wednesday, June 2, 2021, from 5-7 p.m. Officiated by Pastor Chris Steenmeyer, a Celebration of Life will be held for Alexa at Mountain Springs Church located at 7345 Adventure Way, Colorado Springs, CO 80923, on Thursday, June 3, 2021, at 1 p.m. Following the service, please join the family for a reception at Cordera Community Center located at 11894 Grand Lawn Circle, Colorado Springs, CO 80924.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to IREE, the Institute for Racial Equity & Excellence, in honor of Alexa.
