HIRAM — Alexia L. “Lexi” Valente, 16, of Hiram died on Wednesday, Oct. 16, 2013 from injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident in Hiram.

She was born in Bridgton on Jan. 16, 1997, a daughter of Steven and Sherry (Harmon) Valente. She attended local schools and was currently a junior at Sacopee Valley High School in Hiram.

To say that Lexi was energetic and full of life is an understatement. She was an accomplished student athlete. Field hockey was her favorite sport, but she also played softball, basketball and when she was younger, she was a member of the Sacopee Cheer Club. She was an avid snowboarder and enjoyed many outdoor activities such as snowmobiling and four-wheeling. She had taken up hunting recently and enjoyed skeet shooting. She also had a great love of horses and was involved with the local 4-H program when she was younger. She had worked at Sher-Bears Ice Cream, a family-owned business. She also had worked at Stone Ridge Restaurant and most recently at Krista’s Restaurant, both in Cornish.

Lexi loved all music, especially country music. This tragedy has affected not only her family, but the Sacopee Valley community as a whole. She will be so sadly missed by all who knew and loved her.

She was predeceased by her maternal grandfather, Carl Harmon, and her paternal grandparents, Theo and Sandra Cook.

Surviving are her parents, Steven and Sherry Valente of Hiram; maternal grandmother, Janet Harmon of Hiram; four sisters, Adrianna Valente of Biddeford, Victoria Valente of Hiram, Jessica Cobb of Westbrook and Jennifer Cobb of Portland; a brother, Steven Valente Jr. of Pittsfield; as well as many loving aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and numerous caring friends.

Visiting hours were held on Sunday, Oct. 20, from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Watson, Neal & York Funeral Home, 71 Maple Street, Cornish. A funeral service was held on Monday, Oct. 21, at 6 p.m. at the Sacopee Valley High School gymnasium on the South Hiram Road in South Hiram.
