Alexandra (Sanders) Zill-Beebe of Matamoras, Pa., died on Thursday, Nov. 30, 2017, at Bon Secours Community Hospital, Port Jervis, N.Y. She was 36.

Daughter of Robert and Grace (Gregovich) Sanders, she was born Sept. 3, 1981, in Newton, N.J.

She graduated from Wallenpaupack Area High School, Hawley, Pa., and Keystone College, LaPlume, Pa. On May 31, 2015, she married her best friend and greatest confidante, Matthew Beebe, in a ceremony overlooking the Endless Mountains in Rome, Pa.

Survivors include her husband; son, Evan “Reed” Beebe; father, Robert; brother, Ryan Sanders of Greeley, Pa.; father- and mother-in-law, Robert and Mary Beebe of Rome, Pa.; and her extended family and closest friends.

She was predeceased by her mother, Grace.

A family statement said: "Though short, she lived a full life, cultivating many passions and talents, to include exploring the outdoors, hunting for fossils, crafting of all kinds, creating gourmet meals, decorating for every occasion, enjoying music and reading everything she could. While she found joy in many things, her greatest pleasures came from family. Known to friends and family as Alex, Al or Lexi, it was the more recent monikers of Mrs, wife and ma-ma-ma that meant the most to her. Those who had the opportunity to know her, loved her."

Her family will receive friends at Stroyan Funeral Home, 405 West Harford St., Milford, Pa., on Dec. 9, at 11 a.m., with the memorial service at noon.
