Ashley M. Meehan
Ashley M. Meehan, 30, West Fargo passed away Saturday, April 11, 2020 at Sanford Health, Fargo after a long-time battle with Stage 4 Triple Negative Breast Cancer.
Ashley was born June 4, 1989 in Fargo, North Dakota to Roger and Carol (Lanning) Meehan. She graduated from West Fargo High School in 2007. She went on to graduate from Josef’s School of Hair Design before working as a stylist at Lil’ Whipper Snippers in 2009 and becoming the sole owner in 2014.
She loved being around children, which was evident in her owning of Lil’ Whipper Snippers. She was a second mom to many of her friend’s children and always found happiness in being able to spend time with them.
Her pride and joy was her dog Luna which she showered with love and affection. She had a bucket list of things that she wanted to accomplish, one of her favorite things being “going to Hawaii with her close friends and family,” which was planned until her health declined in addition to COVID-19 preventing her from accomplishing this bucket list item. She was able to accomplish her goal of going skydiving, which she did in 2019. She also took a trip across 13 states in an 18-wheeler and her last trip to Arizona with her sister, mom and special “aunt” Beverly was an important memory for them all.
She loved spending time at Lee Lake with her friends and family where she could be found helping with events for the campground. She was proud of her and her sister’s first place finish in the annual 4th of July golf cart parade.
She had a “never-give-up” mentality in regard to her diagnosis and always remained positive throughout her battle. She always made sure everyone else was taken care of and was selfless in her ability to show her friends and family how much she loved them. Her smile and gentle nature will be missed by all she leaves behind.
She is survived by her parents, Roger and Carol, West Fargo, ND; sister, Kayla (fiancé Jesse Buchholz) Meehan, Fargo, ND and special niece, MaKenna Buchholz.
She was preceded in death by her grandparents, James and Elaine Meehan and John and Patsy Lanning.
In lieu of flowers, memorials preferred.
