Obituary - Ashley Miranda Neal

Ashley Miranda Neal, age 31, of Warrensburg, Missouri, passed away at her residence on April 4, 2021.

Ashley was born to Mitchell Mertz and Catherine “Elliott” Mertz, in Warrensburg, MO, on January 4, 1990.

Ashley graduated from the University of Central Missouri with a Bachelor of Science in Biology.

Ashley is survived by her mother Cathy Mertz; daughter Aspen Neal; sister Cassie Wilcox; grandmother Pat Elliott; and many Aunts, Uncles, Nieces, Nephews and Friends.

She was preceded in death by her father Mitchell Mertz; grandfather Carl Elliott; and aunt Karen Elliott.

Ashley’s love for everyone who ever met her will forever be remembered. Her love for all things, especially anything outdoors was incredible. 

She knew the name of every tree, plant, mushroom and bird from Missouri. She passed that love to her beautiful daughter, the love of her life, whom she named according to her passion: Aspen. She was an amazing mother with so many wonderful talents that she has instilled on to her sweet baby. 

Her smile could brighten up any room and she had a heart of gold. It is often difficult to see the good in this world, but Ashley was it. May she Rest In Peace, and know all the love that everyone has for her, and she for them.

The family asked that memorial donations be made to Consalus Funeral Home for a scholarship to be established for Aspen.
