It was always all about Ashleigh Jordynne Smith.
Born a Princess July 25, 1991 and became an Angel December 21, 2008.
Ashleigh will be lovingly remembered by her parents Greg and Maria Dawson; sisters, Kassie, Shelby and Mya; father, Jason Smith, Tam and Colt, grandparents: Harold and Anne Bullock; Mike and Shirley Smith; Jack and Martha Dawson; her Godparents and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and hundreds more family members and cherished friends.
Ashleigh was predeceased by her grandparents, Ken and Gladys Monk.
Ashleigh lived a very dynamic life in her 17 years, touching all she met with her friendly smile, spunky attitude and her compulsion to push the boundaries, way outside the box. She was fortunate enough to travel to Italy, see the Queen, and meet many musical celebrities. She lived her life to the fullest with lots of enthusiasm and passion. She truly believed that: “Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets…Nobody said it would be easy. They just promised it would be worth it.”
Ashleigh was interred in the Tranquility Gardens on December 27. We celebrated her life at the Northstar Baptist Church with Minister Norm Botterill officiating. We shared stories, laughs, songs, balloons and fireworks followed by a reception fit for a princess. It truly was done in Ashleigh style.
Ashleigh’s family would like to thank you for your love and support at this time.
