Obituary

Ashleigh Marina Church, 18, passed away on November 1, 2021. Ashleigh was born on December 16, 2002, in Yekaterinburg, Russia. She was preceded in death by her grandparents, George and Lucille Church.

Ashleigh is survived by her loving parents, Fred and Leslie Church; brother, Andrei Church; grandparents, Lyn and Ginny Worden; uncles, Doug (Alicia) Worden and Greg (Vicki) Worden; cousins, Justine, Julia, Gavin and Rowan Worden.

Ashleigh was a beautiful spirit who loved the outdoors. She loved art, horses, flowers, and all creatures great and small, and they were drawn to her.

Ashleigh had to face mental health challenges throughout her too-short life. She applied the lessons she learned to counsel her friends whenever called upon. As part of her search for her identity, she chose to be called “Leo”. The hole that she leaves in the hearts of her family and friends cannot be expressed.

Ashleigh’s family will receive friends on Sunday, November 7, 2021, from 3 to 5PM at the Cotner Funeral Home, 7369 E. Main St. Reynoldsburg, OH where her funeral service will be held on Monday, November 8, 2021, at 10:30AM with Rev. Kimberly Wisecup officiating. Interment Maplewood Cemetery.

Memorial donations in Ashleigh’s memory may be made to: Child Mind Institute (childmind.org) or Columbus Humane Society (columbushumane.org).
