She gifted this world with two beautiful children, KyLeigh Lynette Alexander (January 15, 2002) and Kane William Alexander (November 16, 2009). In addition to her children, she is survived by her parents, grandmothers, Rhea Costello and Ruth Alexander, and her sister, Kristen L.

Courtney was a 1998 graduate of Portage Area High School. Enjoyed cheerleading and was awarded a board scholarship to Cambria County Community College. Attended several schools and received an associate degree in Criminal Justice from Everest University Online. Spent much time on the internet, keeping things interesting on Facebook. Acquired a love of all types of history from her father. Enjoyed watching movies with her kids. Avid television watcher, from comedy to ghost chasing and binge watched her favorite old shows, such as Dallas and Roseanne. Infatuated with, and collected items on, Marilyn Monroe. Had a versatile taste in music; was raised on the oldies and classic rock. Among her favorite bands were Led Zeppelin, Marilyn Manson, Evans Blue (whom she met) and The Used, for whom her chest tattoo was in tribute In Love and Death. Lover of ink with each tat having a special meaning. Rescued her share of animals, including current cats, Reese, Daisy and Lily, and dog, Max, who will miss her. Loved her Yankee Candles.
