Ashley Ann (Bartow) Ryan, 41 years old, went to be with her Lord after a vehicle accident outside of Marble Falls on February 9, 2023.
Ashley was born on July 27, 1981, in Corpus Christi, Texas. Jimmy and Cathy Bartow were excited to welcome their precious baby girl into their family, especially since she already had two older brothers. She was immediately their special little girl. She was commonly called “Pistol Pete” by her father.
Ashley spent her younger years growing up in Kingsville, TX. She moved with her mom to Salem, Oregon in 1996 and attended Sprague High School, graduating in June 1999. She quickly adapted to her new school culture and made many friends. During high school she became a cheerleader, participated in advanced curriculum classes, and graduated with honors.
After high school, Ashley was determined to return to Texas and attended the University of Texas at Austin with her close cousin Jessica. Ashley was a typical college student, she studied hard and partied some too. She graduated in December 2003 with a bachelor’s degree (BS) in Advertising.
She worked various jobs before being hired by the Texas Department of Transportation as a Public Affairs specialist where she worked for nine years. After leaving TxDOT, Ashley went on to other jobs that appealed to her wishes. In 2015 she moved to Marble Falls to be closer to her mother and at the time of her death Ashley was working for Home Depot in Marble Falls.
In the last year, Ashley had finally met her true love and soul mate, Charlie Pemberton of Marble Falls. Ashley and Charlie planned to marry this year.
Ashley’s kind heart, beautiful smile and great laugh will be missed by all who knew her.
