Dear GSW Friends,
It is with great sadness that I report the death of Mary Ashton, Tucson GSW Chapter. Mary was the founder of the chapter and a long time member of Gold Star Wives of America. She died February 14, 2017 at the age of 94. She is survived by 3 children. Her son George Ashton called late on February 14 to inform Gold Star Friends of her passing.
A memorial service for her this Friday, February 17 at 10:00 AM at the Desert Skies United Methodist Church, 3255 N Houghton Rd, Tucson AZ 5749. She is being cremated and her ashes will be placed with her first husband in Texas and a few other places she wanted to be remembered.
I don’t have an official obituary her son said you could send a donation in her memory to the church, Gold Star Wives or charity of your choice. (More information now available.)
Cards can be sent to:
The Family of Mary Ashton
C/O George Ashton
7841 S Aveinda Bonita
Tucson, AZ 85747
The Tucson Chapter President Karen Burns Copley, members and some of the Phoenix Chapter will be at her Memorial.
I know I have probably missed others who knew Mary so please pass to friends who knew her.
Past National President
Secretary Phoenix Chapter
