ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

Alexandra (Alix) Pye passed away peacefully April 9, 2017 at West Seattle’s Providence Mt. St. Vincent, her home since 2009.
      A native of Faribault, Minnesota, the family’s early connection to Seattle and her passion for the outdoors brought her West in 1953. She sank roots in Alki, where she lived an active community life for 45 years. An Alki News Bulletin reported, “Survey the crowd in some civic event in West Seattle and chances are you’ll spot Alexandra Pye. Whether at Greater Harbor 2000, at Alki Community Council meetings, or sweeping leaves off the Schmitz Park Bridge sidewalk, the ubiquitous Ms. Pye seems to be there.”
        A 1948 graduate of Antioch College and the University of Minnesota’s School of Social Work (1953), she began her career working with the aging as the second director of Seattle’s Hamilton House. Her first overseas adventure (1957) was to Germany as recreation support to the U.S. Army’s Special Services. In 1959 she returned to work with developmentally-disabled residents at Seattle’s Fircrest School.
