Sadly, we announce the death of our beautiful daughter and sister Ashley Maureen Black on February 17, 2021. Ashley will be remembered by her loving mother Elizabeth McCabe and father Donald Black. She will be missed and cherished forever by her sisters Danielle (J.P.) Fortin, Jody, and Kristine (Andrew Watts). Loving granddaughter of Rosemary McCabe, and the late Jack McCabe, Bill and Fran Black. Aunt of Tristan and Scarlett Fortin. She will be deeply missed by her aunts, uncles, thirty-nine first cousins, and many friends.
Ashley was a strong willed, smart, courageous, brave light in our world. She made friends wherever she lived and worked in Minneapolis, Dallas, and Toronto.
“Lord make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is despair, hope. Where there is sadness, joy. Where there is darkness, light. Grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console, to be understood as to understand. For it is in dying, that we are born to eternal life.” ~ St. Francis
A private ceremony with immediate family will be held at the Mount Pleasant Cemetery. A celebration of life will be announced at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to CAMH Foundation.
