Farewell Courtney Alexandra
On April 4, 2020, amid the world’s
pandemic heartbreak, Courtney Alexandra
Seymour Kearney lost her two-and-a-half-
year battle against cancer.
Courtney was a 1998 graduate of Lincoln-
Sudbury Regional High School in Sudbury,
Massachusetts, and a 2002 graduate of the
University of Maryland, where she earned a
bachelor’s degree in marketing. She became
sales manager for Wrightsville Beach Magazine,
Lumina News and The Wrightsville Beach Phone
Book during our boom years before the reces-sion.
She married Tim Kearney at Porters
Neck Plantation on April 26, 2008. The
couple had two sons, Gray and Wyatt.
With us from the summer of 2007 to the
spring of 2009, she was a great employee, fun and funny, energetic, always keeping
the sales team on top of things during the years where there wasn’t a minute to spare.
She will be missed. She was beautiful outside and in, and our lives were
enriched because of her. Some among us called her friend, yet she never did
discriminate. We all loved her.
What a wonderful magazine to cherish
in these uncharted times. I totally
enjoyed the April (my birth month)
2020 issue “Solace in Difficult Times.”
Congratulations on Volume 21 Issue 4
