Ashley and Joshua welcomed their precious daughter, Chloe Karleen Walter into the world on July 22, 2011.

Ashley was a devoted wife to Joshua and an amazing mother to Chloe. She enjoyed walking, watching movies, going to the lake, bon fires, doing crossword puzzles, reading to Chloe and talking on the phone. She treasured times with her family, friends and co-workers and was an inspiration to many with her ever persevering, can-do attitude. She never focused on the limitations that her disability had dealt her. She had a real zest for life and was always up for a challenge and new adventure. She proudly braved bridge jumping at Aunt Elaine's and set her sights on walking her first 5K which she did with her father-in-law at the Fargo Marathon in May of 2013. In June she volunteered at the Fargo Run or Dye and was considering registering for her second 5K in August. Consolation is taken in knowing that Ashley has now been set free in her new heavenly life.

Ashley's smiles, teasing nature and uplifting spirit will be missed deeply by her husband, Joshua, and her daughter, Chloe; her parents, Dan (Laurie) Anderson, Starbuck, MN and Laura Gibson (Philip Gleason), Corcoran, MN; her sisters, Malorie (Matt) Drugg, Lakeville, MN and Whitney Anderson, Corcoran, MN; her brother, Logan Anderson, St. Cloud, MN; her step-sister, Sarah Vrchota, Starbuck, MN; Her father and mother-in-law John (Theresa) Walter of Doran, MN; sisters-in-law, Trisha (Corey) Larson, Norfolk, VA; Carissa Walter, Arlington, VA, Lindsey (Jeremy) Wanek, Minnetonka, MN, Amy Walter, Fargo, ND, Jennie Walter and Bobbie Walter, Doran, MN; her paternal grandfather, Darrell Anderson, Buffalo, MN; her maternal grandparents, William and Ruth Gibson, Browns Valley, MN; and her maternal great-grandparents, Sylvester and Sally Homan, Browns Valley, MN.

Ashley was preceded in death by her paternal grandmother, Karleen Anderson; her step-grandfather, Milton Mattice.
