Born in Morristown, New Jersey in 1974, Alex lived in Mahlberg, West Germany, in Toronto, Quebec City, and Montreal, in Florence and London, then Boston, and finally in Providence, where she died at her family's home in 1998. She was put to rest in the Oak Grove cemetery at her favorite place on earth, the Vineyard.
The trustees of the Alexandra MM Gagnon Foundation have chosen as its primary focus to support the treatment and prevention of substance abuse and to fund scientific research into its causes and its cures, particularly as it pertains to young people. The Foundation will not limit its support to any given geographic area but will usually focus its attention in the communities with which Alex identified and to the institutions which gave her help and solace.
