Terresa was a strong person and did things on her own and never asked for help. She always thought of others before herself. Momma loved her family and worried about them and their happiness. Her grandchildren meant the world to her, and she loved them with all her heart and the happiness they gave her. She was known as one of the best cooks in town.

She worked all her life and now she can finally rest in heaven with her heavenly father.

Terresa was preceded in death by her father, Harlon Ray Uptain; husband, George Elmer Ashley; and niece, Heather Elaine Colburn Royster.
