Ashley Catherine Locke, 28, of Somers, formerly of Lebanon, beloved daughter to Glen and Susan Madamas Locke; sister to Justin, passed away early on Tuesday, Nov. 6, 2018, at home.

Battling depression and physical ailments for years, her demons finally got the best of her. She gave little to no sign of their ultimate power over her prior to taking her own life. Ashley was born in Springfield on Nov. 1, 1990. She was an extremely kind-hearted and compassionate person who had a deep love for animals. Growing up, she would consistently ask not only for a dog, but to have a pet cow in the backyard. In the fields or on a farm… that is where she felt at peace with the world. She loved her time at her good friend Brandon Smith's farm, pampering and playing with the 1,200-pound bulls. Her rescue dog, Archie, meant everything to her. She loved to take him on walks or bring him anywhere that she went. Ashley always treasured her trips out to the mountains in Vermont or walking the sands at Cape Cod; she truly appreciated the simple things in life. Whenever she was able to get the whole family together for a trip, a party, or just a dinner, she was content. Ashley left the perfect memory with all of us, having just celebrated her birthday with her family and spending a weekend getaway with her friends. She is sincerely loved and will be missed by many.

Ashley is also survived by her grandparents, Ted and Judy Locke; many aunts, uncles, and cousins, and her beloved friends.

Relatives and friends are invited to join the family for calling hours on Tuesday, Nov. 13, from 5 to 8 p.m. at Leete-Stevens Enfield Chapels, 61 South Road, Enfield.

A funeral service will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 14, at 11 a.m. at the funeral home. Burial will be held at the convenience of the family.

The family is requesting, in lieu of flowers, please donate to the American Rescue Foundation or to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America in her name, so as to help find a cure to this epidemic.
