Casey Maccarone’s mom has always been something of a superwoman, but still, when Monique Alexander decided to go out on Christmas Eve, Maccarone was worried.

It would be a simple decision any other day, but a blizzard was coming – one that will leave some areas of Western New York under more than 50 inches of snow.

Maccarone was already feeling anxious looking at store closing notices on Facebook, she told CNN.

But her mother wanted out and Alexander, 52, said she would be right back and left without mentioning where she was headed. Maccarone, who had lived with Alexander since August, said she just assumed her mother was trying to get to the stores before they closed.

Alexander never returned. Her body was found just a few hundred meters from the house.

“We were waiting for her to come home. I knew right away that something was wrong, so I kind of accepted it instantly, but it’s hard for me to know that she was out that long because the emergency workers weren’t allowed to go out,” Maccarone said, speaking to the family you are home on wednesday

Alexander had been through strong storms before and she walked everywhere.

“She always felt like superwoman and invincible, so I guess she just thought she could handle the conditions,” Maccarone said. “I can’t really say anything to my mom, she’ll do what she wants. I guess she just thought she was strong enough for that.

She heard cries for help during a deadly winter storm. Her actions saved a life

Alexander left around 3 p.m. A few hours later, Maccarone posted about his mother on a Facebook group for Buffalo residents enduring the worsening weather. About 15 minutes later, a stranger texted her and described her mother’s coat and blue jeans. She confirmed it was Alexander and asked him if he had seen her.

“Can I call you?” Maccarone said he asked her.

Once in a video chat, he immediately broke down. The man told her he was stranded and walking when he saw Alexander in the snow. He moved her body away from the elements, under the shed of a business where she wouldn’t be buried under the snow.

Later, the National Guard will retrieve her body. Alexander is at least among them 37 people died in Erie County17 of which were found outside, officials said, although they added that the total would almost certainly rise.

Maccarone said the family has lost their rock and someone they can turn to for anything.

“My children lost their grandmother, and that was her most important role in her life … to be a good grandmother,” she said. “And now they just have memories.”
