Mrs. Ashley died June 12 in Killeen.
She was born January 1939 in Atlanta Georgia . She was 81.

She is also survived by her brother and sister Gary and Marian Wildeboer, a nephew Matthew Wildeboer and his wife Jennifer and their children Miles and Charlie. Her beloved dogs Moose and Duke also survive her.
Jeanne always demonstrated her absolute love and devotion to her family and friends. She was known around the world for being a good friend to everyone. She followed her husband around the world during his 31 years in the military, always making a home for her family, while making sure her beloved children saw and learned about the world.
She was a woman who, in her quiet way, was a leader in all she did, encouraging others to be their best and succeed at life. She was a woman of strong faith and was a leader in her church. Her family and friends are devastated by her passing, but know they will see her again.
Jeanne always said that flowers were for the living and enjoyed them so much during her lifetime that in that spirit, the family requests that no flowers be sent and instead that donations be made in her name to St Andrews United Methodist Church, the Killeen Food Care Center, the Killeen Free Clinic, or a charity of your choice.
