Ashley Nichole Powell, a kind-hearted and compassionate soul, peacefully entered into eternal rest on Wednesday, August 2, 2023. She was 38 years old.

Ashley was born on September 14, 1984, in Macon, Georgia to her loving parents Tracy Gates and Elaine Floyd. She was a source of love and positivity in the lives of all who knew her. Ashley's unwavering kindness and thoughtfulness earned her a special place in the hearts of her friends and family. Ashley's warmth knew no bounds. She possessed an extraordinary ability to find something wonderful to say about anyone she met, and her genuine compliments uplifted the spirits of those around her.
