Obituary for Alexandra Chitwood

Alexandra "Sandy" "Alex" Chitwood, 47, passed away November 5, 2020, in her Lancaster residence.

She was the loving wife of Kenneth D. "Euro" Chitwood; they were married on April 23, 2011. They met in Italy through People to People traveling with separate youth groups over a three week stint. Their shared interests, especially their love of children, immediately brought them together.

Born in Queens, she was the daughter of J. Alberto and Sandra Cobian, Spring Twp.

She was a graduate of Wilson High School in 1990, Alvernia University with a bachelor degree in drug and alcohol and women's studies, and earned her master's degree from West Chester University in school counseling.

Alexandra began her professional career at Caron Treatment Center, later she spent tireless hours working for the Children's Home of Reading, and for the last 18 years was a school counselor at Manheim Township School District at the middle school, the high school and again back at the middle school.

She was a member of St. Peter the Apostle Roman Catholic Church, Reading and Victory Church, Greenfield, Lancaster. Alexandra loved to travel, cook, eat, and scrapbook. She had a tremendous love for her family and a passion for the growth and development for all children.

In addition to her husband and parents, she is survived by her step-sons, Derrick (Karen) Chitwood, and their children, Wellington Kai Chitwood and Quinn Chitwood, Columbus, IN, and Jordan Chitwood, at home. She had three siblings: A.J. Cobian (Lindsay) and their child Julian, Ephrata; Alfredo (Bere) Gomez, Miami, FL; and Marcus Gomez, Miami, FL. Many cousins also survive her. She loved that Wellington and Quinn called her G-Ma.

Funeral services will be public; however, all CDC guidelines will be strictly enforced including all attendees wearing facemasks that cover both their mouth and nose along with social distancing. Due to the pandemic the family respectfully asks all students not attend the viewing and service so the number of attendees remains manageable; everyone else that knew and loved Alexandra is encouraged to attend. A viewing will be held Monday, November 9, 2020, from 3 to 5 p.m. at Edward J. Kuhn Funeral Home, Inc. 739 Penn Avenue West Reading. A prayer service will begin at 5 p.m. There will be the option to be present for the service but be outside either seated or standing in case of overflow or a person's preference to be outside. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Cure for Childhood Cancer or Hershey Medical Center for Pediatric Care or St. Jude's Children's Hospital. The viewing and service will be livestreamed on Alexandra's page on the Kuhn website. Condolences may be expressed at

I was on the 8th grade red team with Alex at MT Middle School when she first began her work there. What a wonderful guidance counselor! She cared for and connected with her students on a deep level. She was a joy to work with. Always upbeat, always smiling, always positive. The kind of person who just makes the world a better place. RIP, Alex. My sincere sympathy to Alex’s family.

I loved working with Alex and am fortunate to have known her. Please know that Alex and you are in my thoughts and prayers. Bob O’Donnell
