Brenda “Gail” Ashe, of Rosman, died peacefully in her home surrounded by family, June 16, 2020.

She was the daughter of the late Bud and Jessie Wikle McFalls. She was preceded in death by two brothers, Paul Lewis and James Bud McFalls.

She was a devoted Christian woman who loved Christ and her Rosman Baptist Tabernacle Church family. Her entire life was lived with an unselfish love for everyone around her. It was always such a joy for her to be with family and friends.

She was a wife and mother for almost 51 years, and worked as a teacher’s assistant at Rosman Elementary and Brevard First Baptist Church preschool for more than 40 years. Her greatest joy and dedication was being a grandmother. She loved her two grandchildren, Emilee and Gabriel, more than life itself. They were her world for 22 years. We are so thankful for the example she taught, how to live a life pleasing to Christ and thinking of others first before one’s self.

Survivors include, the love of her life, husband, Raymond Eddie Ashe; one daughter, Jennifer Ashe Lawson, of Arden; one son, David Scott Ashe and wife, Zara, of Tuckasegee; brothers and sisters, Dovie Mae Stephens and husband, Huty, of Cullowhee, Ben McFalls and wife, Cindy, of Cullowhee, Clara Faye Nicholson and husband, Delane, of Sylva, Joseph Terrell McFalls, of Dunmore, and Judy Allman and husband, Toby, of Bryson City; sister-in-law Glana McFalls Vickers, of Cullowhee; and grandchildren, Emilee Ashe Pains Chab and husband, Devin, of Sylva, and Gabriel Ashe, of Tuckasegee.

In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made in her honor to Rosman Baptist Tabernacle and Tuckasegee Wesleyan Church cemetery fund.
