Ashley WishartJune 3, 2002 ~ November 13, 2017 (age 15)
Ashley Ann Wishart, 15, passed away on November 13th, 2017 much too soon.
She was born to Richard S. Wishart and Nancy Joy Coates, on June 3, 2002. She was an active teen still in her high school years.
Ashley was a wonderful young lady. She was bright and fun and had a great sense of humor. She loved all animals, but especially cats. She loved nature, but winter was her favorite season. She liked flowers, and purple was her favorite color.
She was a musician and played piano and violin. She once had a piano recital at the Dungeness Community Church and played Fur Elise, when she was nine years old. She did a great job. She earned awards in school and always worked hard in her studies. She was in the orchestra in middle school. She was a gifted artist and wrote poetry. She ran on her High School cross country team as a freshman and did very well.
She was and is loved by her family. Her mom, Nancy Joy Coates, her dad, Richard Shawn Wishart, her sister Kayla Wishart (Sean Tamburro), her grandparents, Brad and Mary Ann Shea, and Randell Wishart, her uncle Trevor Shea, her aunts Bambi Ann Wishart, Crystal Shea and Miranda (Chris) Sharkey, her great aunts and uncles, Mark and Karen Anderson and Connie and Doug Swaim, and her many cousins, represented by Roger (Dawn) Anderson, Jason (Nicole) Anderson, Drake Anderson, Tami Heinz, Xandra Kopp, and Case Kopp.
She is also loved by her friends. We thank the many friends of hers who have expressed condolences and support in this time of sadness for her and her family and thank them for attending the vigils held to honor her.
Ashley is gone from us too soon. We all mourn, not only her passing, but the potential future that she might have had. We love you Ashley Ann Wishart. May you rest in peace in God's hands.
