She found her soul mate and the love of her life John William Broadfoot, Attorney. They were married for 46 years. Together they shared their love for the law and helping people.
Alexis loved good food, having a good time, music, reading and most importantly her family.

Alexis is survived by her husband, John W Broadfoot. Her sons, Todd Broadfoot, John Broadfoot JR and wife Lissea, brother Dr. Morgan McCaleb and wife Dixie, sisters Judy Matney, Sharon Bunney and husband Michael, several nephews, a niece and her only grand-daughter Lauren Broadfoot, the most exceptional person, as she would say.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to High Plains Children‘s Home.

    I wanted to express my heartfelt condolences to all the family. There’s such a sense of helplessness when someone we love dies. I’d like to share some scriptural thoughts that really helps me. Prayer is so valuable at this time but it’s not that prayer simply makes us feel better. 2 Cor.4:7 says that God can give us, “… power beyond what is normal “, to go from one day to the next. This does not mean that we no longer cry or that we forget, but it means we recover. The reason we recover is because of our hope. Jesus Christ talked about our hope in John 5:28, “… all those in the memorial tomb will hear his voice and come out “. Jesus was referring to the resurrection, this is our hope that helps us recover and gives us power to go on. 2 Cor.1:3 describes our Creator as, “… the God of all comfort “. One way that God comforts us is by moving people who care about us to give us words of encouragement that we need to hear. May the God of comfort (Ps.83:18) be your comfort now during this time of sorrow.
