Alexandrea R. McCartney 1999-2022

CANFIELD — Alexandrea “Ally” Robin McCartney, 23, born in Gunnison, Colo., on June 26, 1999, passed Aug. 16, 2022, from complications following a sudden cardiac event Aug. 4, 2022.

She was diagnosed with non-ischemic cardiomyopathy in May 2022. She was vivacious, beautiful, intelligent and full of drive to help those most in need.

She was a 2017 Canfield High School graduate and graduated in May 2022 from Youngstown State University with both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in social work, earned a LSW, and was just beginning a career working with children and their families at Alta Behavioral Healthcare.

She was a great lover of music and always was up for a concert. Tender hearted, yet fierce in character, she voiced her feelings about social causes that were for the equality of all people and against oppression of any kind.

She had a wide and wonderful social network, full of friends new and old. She unfailingly made us all laugh.

She leaves behind a devastated family, including her mother, Rachel (Williamson) McCartney; her father, John McCartney; sister, Maddie McCartney; her Mimi and Poppy, Becky and Bill Williamson, who were a constant presence throughout her life; and her grandparents, Linda Chismar-Witherow and Tom Witherow.

Her family, her partner and closest friends were with her during her final days. We all ache in her absence. Hers was a presence and potential the world will be lesser without.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
