Ashleigh Lucretia Orosz

Our beautiful daughter Ashleigh passed away Sunday, November 2. No less than we would expect from our strong-willed daughter it was on her terms, coming home on a Leer jet one step closer to heaven. While her time here with us was far too short, her vibrant presence will forever be an inspiration to everyone she touched. Ashleigh had a beautiful smile that lit up the room and a contagious laugh that filled your heart with sunshine.

Ashleigh was part of the Grand Valley School District family. She loved everything about attending school, her friends, the teachers and the classes. Her favorite being history, our family was so fortunate to have been able to go back east in September to enjoy just that. While our Mighty Mouse was small she never let it interfere with her love of soccer and volleyball. She loved to wear dresses, sing and dance. While she was all girly, she loved to go shooting and hunting with her Dad. One of her favorite outings was for us to have a hot dog roast and go shooting with Papa and Grandma.

Ashleigh and her twin sister Jessica were double trouble, what one didn’t think of the other did. Most often Ashleigh was the instigator. She adored her brother Brandon and was so proud of him being a firefighter. Her sister Michelle was one of her best friends, always brightening her day with some crazy fun idea. Ashleigh’s nephew Damien and niece Amelia were the light of her life. She loved spending time with her special sister Katie Kellerby, most recently dressing up for prom and having a girls night out with all of her sisters.

Ashleigh is survived by her Dad and Mom, Jeff and Susan, Brother Brandon and wife Killian Deter, Sister Michelle and husband Kenny Adamson and her twin sister Jessica, nephew and niece Damian and Amelia Adamson, Grandparents George and Valley Vezakis and many Aunts, Uncles and Cousins.

We have to thank her angel, the generous man that donated her bone marrow that allowed us more time with her.

Our family thanks everyone for all of the kind words and generous acts of kindness. We are humbled by all of the love and caring thoughts. In lieu of flowers we ask that donations be made in Ashleigh’s memory to Brent’s Place in Aurora. We welcome everyone to come and join us in a celebration of Ashleigh at 2 p.m. on Saturday November, 8 at our home in Rulison.
