Ashley was born in Wilmington, NC on June 20, 1986 to Terri Lynn Harman Haddock and the late Deryle Glenn Key.

Along with her father, Ashley is preceded in death by her grandparents: Richard Clyde Harman, Jonna Lee Provost Harman, Thelma Jean Wiley, her cousin Richard Clyde Harman, II, and her daughter Penelope Quinn.

She is survived by her spouse, Chris, her partners Jessica & Russell, and her children Akasha, Jacen, Eleanor “LE”, Sebastian, Clarissa, and Alexander.

Ashley graduated from East Columbus High School in 2004. After high school, she was employed in the Quality Control department at Midstate Communications in Manchester, TN. In 2017, she graduated with honors from Central Piedmont Community College with an Associate in Science degree in Baking and Pastry Arts. After graduating, she worked under French Master Baker Lionel Vatinet of La Farm in Cary, NC. At the time of her death, she was employed in her dream job as the Pastry Chef at Good Food on Monford in Charlotte, NC.

Ashley’s friends and family describe her as bubbly, colorful, glittery, and exuberant. She was a wonderful momma to her six children, a loving partner, sister, daughter, and friend. She lived her life to the fullest and lived every moment with passion. Ashley was full of light and never ran out of love to give to every person, animal, and insect she met. She poured that love into food and was known to bring soups to sick loved ones and make special birthday meals for her children and partners. She also created many cakes for friends and family over the years. Ashley followed her dream to make a career out of her passion for cooking and that dream culminated in June, 2021, when she began working as the Pastry Chef for Good Food.

A funeral will be held on Sunday, October 17 at 3pm at Good Food on Monford: 1701 Montford Dr, Charlotte, NC 28209
