Jerry Ashley passed away March 24, 2019 at the age 76 in Sedro-Woolley. He was born to Poley Ashley and Barbara Kidd Ashley in Walled Lake, Michigan.

He married Karen Dawson Ashley and they had two children, Carrie and Jason Ashley who grew up in Clear Lake. He had two grandchildren, Mercadi Mejia and Marshall Auckland and one great- grandson, Christian Mejia. He loved his grand babies very much.

He went to school in Lyman and Sedro-Woolley. He was drafted into the U.S. Army where he served our country, got to travel to Europe, and made many friends.

He loved to fish (oh how we’ll miss his amazing smoked fish!) He liked to hunt for deer and mushrooms. He was creative, funny, and loving. He was always there for his family and we will miss him terribly.

He is survived by his children, Carrie Ashley Auckland and Jason Ashley; siblings, Chuck Ashley, Bill Ashley, Rene Ashley Allen, Ron Bryson and Bonnie Bryson Shriner.

A special thank you to Birchview care center and Hospice of the Northwest.

    We were good buddies @ Lyman, I moved away and later went into service.
    Jerry was a terrific guy and we stayed in touch for awhile, just lost touch while I was in service.
    I will keep Jerry and his family in my prayers, and someday I know that we will cross paths again.

  • Gayle Shook Parker

    I went to grade school and high school with Jerry. He was such a nice person and fun to be around. I am sure his family and friends have many wonderful special memories of time spent with Jerry.

  • Chick Sandifer

    Jerry made a nice life for himself. We’ll miss him. Prayers go to his family. Cherish the memories.
