Ashton tragically passed away on January 3, 2012 at the age of 22. She was born November 18, 1989 and was raised in Juneau, AK. She was a member of Sealaska, Goldbelt and Tlingit & Haida Central Council. In 2008, at 17, Ashton's determination allowed her to graduate early from high school and at 21 on November 19, 2011 she accomplished one of her childhood dreams when she graduated from Everest Community College in Seattle, WA and became a registered Dental Assistant. She looked forward to a new beginning and bright future in her newly found career.

She is survived by her father Rick Reyes, her mother Terri Reyes (Rex Elliott), her siblings Merissa Sherwood (Rian), Maegan Gerhards, Andrea Gerhards (Pete), Nathan Gerhards. Grandparents Marie (Reyes) Bottoms, Murry and Carole Hoover, Uncles Amado Reyes, Mark Hoover, Don Nowlin, Greg Krutzikowsky, and Jay Bonzani. Aunts Teresa Germain (Skip Lundstrom), Lori Hoover, Leslie Antolick, Vicki Krutzikowsky, Angela Bonzani, and Lesslie Knight. Also, many cherished cousins, nieces and nephews and numerous extended relatives along with dear friends of whom Ashton loved and valued in her life.

A Celebration of Life and Memorial will be held on Saturday, September 1, 2012 at 2:00 pm at the Moose Lodge in Juneau, AK. Following the services, we will release our Angel's ashes at her favorite fishing spot out at the North Douglas boat launch. ASHTON~YOU ARE GONE BUT NEVER FORGOTTEN.
