Ethel Mae Ashby, age 86, of Jeffersonville, IN was born in St. Louis, MO on October 7th, 1935 and returned to her Heavenly Father October 11th, 2021.
Funeral services will be held at 11:00 AM on Thursday, October 14, 2021 at Christ Gospel Church, Jeffersonville, IN, with burial to follow at Oddfellows Cemetery in Morganfield, KY. Visitation will be held from 10 to 11 AM prior to the funeral service on Thursday at the church.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Owen “Botch” Ashby; her parents, Jesse and Edna Waugh; one sister, Alta Beatty; and two brothers, Robert Waugh and Roy Waugh.
She is survived by two sons, James Owen Ashby and Richard Allen Ashby; daughter, Lori Diane Morris (John); sister, Mary Whitaker; seven grandchildren, Susan Ashby, Jamie Ashby, Lesley Ashby, Katie Haeseley (Kyle), Jared Ashby, Kevin Morris (Brooke) and Lisa Morris; and one great-grandbaby, Mary Winn Haeseley.
She was affectionately known as “Granny” by family and friends. To those she just met she’d invite them to call her Granny as well. She was a homemaker and cook at the Uniontown Public School where most administrative meetings took place because of everyone’s love for Granny and her homemade yeast rolls and chicken n’ dumplings.
Granny was a faithful member of Christ Gospel Church and followed the Crucified Way Message as evidenced by her positive attitude during her many years of physical afflictions.
You are loved and missed Granny.
Memorial contributions can be made to Christ Gospel Church. Envelopes will be available at the funeral services.
