Ashlee's Story

Donor Tribute; UW Health Organ Procurement OrganizationOur beautiful precious daughter and sister who will be dearly missed was so full of life and had a smile that would melt you. She is loved and missed by so many and will forever remain in our hearts.


We were blessed to have her in our lives for 15 1/2 years and although our lives will never be the same, we are happy of the selfless gesture she made.


Ashlee leaves her legacy behind with everyone who knew her and all the people's lives she was able to save, as well as all their families for years to come. Ashlee loved life and loved her friends. She loved music, fashion, drawing and writing poetry and blogs. She was on the dance team at her school and loved to ride ATVs and go snowmobiling and bowhunting. She wasn't afraid of living life. She was a typical teenager.


Ashlee had been in an ATV accident and was clinically brain dead. Donating her organs is what we felt we needed to do and also knew that is what she wanted. She was so proud to show people that she was an organ donor on her driving permit.
