Alexis Riegel

Alexis Michelle Riegel, age 28, of Columbus, Ohio died unexpectedly on November 2, 2018. She was loved unconditionally by so many, including her mother Debbie Riegel, grandparents Mike and Joan Ochall, grandmother Judy Riegel, and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins, including Stacey and Sarah, who were like her sisters.
