Lavinia Alexan­der, the Bal­ti­more City clerk of cir­cuit courts who took over that post in 2015 af­ter the death of long­time clerk Frank M. Con­away Jr., died Tues­day of a heart at­tack Tues­day at Si­nai Hospi­tal. She was 62. “We are pro­foundly sad­dened by the un­timely death of our clerk of court,” said W. Michel Pier­son, ad­min­is­tra­tive judge for the Cir­cuit Court. Alexan­der had been chief deputy clerk be­fore be­ing ap­pointed to fill the seat left by Con­away, a prom­i­nent fig­ure in Bal­ti­more who de­scribed him­self as the “god­fa­ther” of African-Amer­i­can politics in the city.

Pier­son said Alexan­der, a res­i­dent of North­west Bal­ti­more, was known for “her pro­fes­sion­al­ism and her con­sid­er­able knowl­edge of court op­er­a­tions.” She is sur­vived by hus­band Cur­tis Alexan­der, an em­ployee of the city reg­is­ter of wills of­fice, as well as daugh­ter Kristal Pick­ett; par­ents Robert Wy­att and Cle­men­tine Watkins; three brothers, Wayne Wy­att, Wil­liam Wy­att and Wes­ley Wy­att; and two sis­ters, Veron­ica Barnes and Sharon Myles, all of the Bal­ti­more area.
