Ashley, 25, took her first steps in heaven Saturday, Sept. 11, 2021.  She was born Aug. 6, 1996, in Shreveport.

To know Ashley was to love her, she was always happy, always smiling and only fussed when she was hungry (a family trait). She had a smile that would light up a room and tons of beautiful black hair.  Her favorite times were spent outside listening to birds sing.  One thing is for sure, Ashley was a fighter. She wasn’t supposed to live longer than six weeks, but we were blessed with 25 years. Her Aunt Kaitlin nicknamed her Chuck Norris because she remained a fighter till the very end. Even when doctors would say it was the end, she would fight to stay with us. She will always be in our heart and was a beloved daughter, sister, granddaughter, cousin and aunt.

She is survived by her mother, Micky Harper and husband Michael; father, Darnell Jackson; sister, Madeline Harper; brothers, Christopher Harper and Alex Harper; maternal grandmother, Carla Miller; maternal great-grandmother, Ann Miller; aunts, Jennifer Foust and Gwen Jones; two cousins that were like siblings, Kaitlin Hatten and Logan Foust; as well as numerous other cousins.

She was preceded in death by her uncle, Terry Hatten.

The family would like to express their sincere appreciation to the staff at Holy Angels for the care and compassion shown to Ashley.  They were truly a blessing to our family.  A special thanks to Frances Lee for sharing your heart and writing her a poem.

In lieu of flowers, memorials in Ashley’s name may be made to Holy Angels, 10450 Ellerbe Road Shreveport, LA 71106.
