Ashley Marie Santiago
OCTOBER 18, 1994 ~ JUNE 9, 2019 (AGE 24)
Ashley Marie Santiago, age 24, was taken from us on Sunday, June 9, 2019 by a drunk driver.
She worked as a personal assistant to Donna Haynes, CEO, managed the eBay sales department at EVS and helped in the front office with “whatever was needed”. She moved right into our hearts without ever realizing the impact that she had made.
She exuded happiness and warmth, and always put everyone else’s comfort and happiness first. She was a fierce friend. She loved taking care of others and did it with her whole heart. She was quiet and shy until she got to know you; then she was funny and crazy and goofy and didn’t care who knew it.
She adored everything Disney and would have moved right into Sleeping Beauty’s Castle at Disneyland if ever given the chance.
Born in Monterey, CA to Kennedy and Michelle Santiago, she was the youngest of two children. She graduated from Marina High School in 2012 and completed her Bachelor of Arts degree in Digital Arts and Animation at Cogswell Polytechnic College in 2017.
Left to honor her love are her mother (Michelle), father (Ken), brother (Joshua), Grandparents (Larry, Diane and Marta) and everyone she touched with her love and light.
Funeral services were held on Monday June 17, 2019 at 11:00am at the Church of the Wayfarer, Lincoln St. & 7th Ave., Carmel. Presidio of Monterey Fire Department engines led the journey to her final resting place at San Carlos Cemetery. Ashley’s father is the retired Chief.
