On this day in history - on February 2, 1993 Renee Jones made her debut as Lexie Carver on Days of Our Lives. This is almost 10 years after she played the role of Nikki Wade, Abe's [James Reynolds] secretary and love interest back in 1983.

Lexie is the daughter of crime boss Stefano DiMera [ex-Joseph Mascolo], and the psychic Celeste Perrault [Ex-Tonya Boyd]. Lexie is also the mother of Theo Carver [Kyler Pettis], and was the wife of former mayor Abe CarverRenĂ©e Jones stepped in as a recast Lexie on on February 2, 1993, and remained until the character's exit - when she went into retirement.

In an interview with TV Guide's Michael Logan in April, 2012 she confirmed that she would be leaving the role of Lexie Carver after a 20 year run and would retire into a simpler life. She also revealed that she was happy in acting. Jones revealed that the exit of Lexie would likely be a permanent one. Jones last aired on June 28, 2012.

This is How it Ended:

In 2012, Lexie's mother Celeste came back to Salem with her brother, Cameron Davis [Nathan Owens]. Before her arrival, Lexie began feeling weak and faint. After initial tests run by Daniel Jonas [Shawn Christian], it's discovered she has brain tumors - as a result of being held captive in the toxic fume-filled tunnels under the DiMera mansion when Andre had kidnapped her a few years prior. Following further tests, it's discovered that the tumors have grown and are fatal, giving her a matter of weeks to live. Her family gathers around her, helping her with her bucket list, which included going to Paris. Unable to fly, Abe, with the help of EJ [Ex-James Scott] and Cameron, turn the Horton Town Square into a Paris-like setting. In late June, a fragile Lexie went on a picnic in the backyard with Abe, where she peacefully passed on in his arms. A ghostly Lexie visits her loved ones, and assures Theo that while she may not always be there in her physical presence, she will always be there for him.
