Ashley was born on February 27, 1985, to Johnny Ray Covington, Sr and Donna Christene Najera in Dallas, Texas and grew up in Pleasant Grove,Texas where she attended school. She was the mother of two boys that she adored.
In 2011, she got her CNA license and worked at Alvarado Meadows Nursing Home. In 2015, she moved to Laguna Park and started working at Clifton Nursing and Rehab. She then decided to further her career as an RN and attended MCC in Waco while working part time at Bosque Mini Mart in Laguna Park so she could focus more on her college work. Her dream was shattered in 2017 when she was diagnosed with stage 3 cancer. She fought a good fight for several years until her body just couldn’t take any more.
She is preceded in death by her father, Johnny Ray Covington, Sr.; sister, April Mar-che Elliott; great-grandparents, Quince and Eunice Mayo and Elton and Bessie Voss; cousins, Kevin Mayo and Shannon Mayfield; grandparents, Wendall and Virginia Covington.
