Ashley Virginia Dennis Stockton, 36, of Ware Shoals, died Wednesday, June 10, 2020 at her residence after a lengthy and bravely fought battle with breast cancer.
A friend to many, Ashley was a kind and beautiful soul with an infectious personality and a strong faith in the Lord. As she selflessly fought her own battle with cancer, she was a loving supporter and encourager of others going through the same. Our world is a little darker, heaven is much brighter, and we know that she has been healed.
