December 26, 1996 - July 6, 2020
Ashley Marie Kropf was born in Albany, Oregon on December 26th, 1996. Ashley grew up in Brownsville Oregon with her parents Ernie Kropf and Barbara (Miller) Kropf, and her siblings Stephanie (Kropf) Kemper and Colton Kropf. She also gained a new brother when Stephanie married Nathaniel Kemper in 2014 and a niece, Vivian Joy Kemper, in 2017. She began dating Jeff Fantus in March of this year. Ashley worked as a rural mail carrier in Corvallis Oregon and had just completed her first year there, but, with a love for travel and photography, her dream job was to take pictures for National Geographic. She had a passion for Jesus and living her life for Him. Her mornings were spent on the living room couch (before the rest of the house was awake) listening to her bible app, drinking her coffee, and journaling. As an active member at Hope Church in Albany Oregon, she had a heart for service and was involved in several different facets of ministry. On April 19, 2018 she was baptized and from then on, referred to this date as her "Birthday." She loved people, coffee, music, photography, silly earrings and purses, and all forms of art. She was known by many for her kind spirit, her infectious laughter, and her creative ability to do all things crafty. The type of project and her experience level were irrelevant. If she had never done before, she would either find instructions or figure it out herself. From restoring furniture, to sewing, to making sheet music flowers for her sister's wedding. Ashley had a Blog called A Joyful Heart. In one of her posts, she wrote: "I have grown so much in my spiritual journey here. I've learned the value that God has placed on my life. I've learned that my life has purpose. I've learned that I have a job that God made me specifically to do... but most importantly, I've learned that I am never alone. Being alone has always been my greatest fear, but I have learned that, with God, there's no such thing as alone. He has always, is always, and will ALWAYS be with you. 'Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous hand.' Isaiah 41:10 " Ashley went to be with her Lord and Savior on July 6th, 2020. Her huge faith that spilled over into every aspect of her life is what gives her family and friends a hope and confidence that they will see her again..
