Jean Rose (Biasi) Ashby, beloved mother, sister, grandmother, and great-grandmother passed away on June 19th, 2023 in Wilmington, North Carolina at the age of 80, less than one month shy of her 81st birthday. She was born on July 14th, 1942, in Netcong, New Jersey.
Jean was known for her sharp wit, her spirited personality, and her love of sweets. However, above all else, she cherished being a caregiver to her girls, who were the light of her life.
Jean was preceded in death by her husband, Michael D. Ashby; her parents, Vito and Lucy Biasi; and a sister, Mary Stark.
She is survived by her daughter, Noelani Daly; sister, Antoinette Smith; brother, Peter Biasi; two granddaughters, Keani Wortham and Jordan Lafountain; and one great-granddaughter, Kaili Jean.
In accordance with Jean’s wishes, there will be no traditional funeral or memorial service. Instead, her family will celebrate her life with a private gathering over drinks and a meal, reflecting on the memories and love that Jean brought into their lives.
Jean will forever be remembered as a loving and dedicated mother, sister, grandmother, and great-grandmother. May her spirit live on through the love and memories of those who knew her best.
