On Friday morning, an automobile tragedy took the life of a promising young softball player from Boonville High School. Sunday night, the neighborhood gathered for a prayer vigil to honor Ashton Pryor. Hundreds of people gathered to remember her and say their final farewells. Legends of Ashton’s incredibly long eyelashes were intertwined with tales of her selfless act of acting as a big sister to a friend’s grieving family when the friend’s sibling passed away.
Ashton’s older sister Randi Jo said, “She had this eyelashes-I swear they touched her eyebrows,” to 44News. None of them were real. All of Ashton’s friends and family could agree on one thing: he was as fearless as they come. Family friend Ashlee Bruggenschmidt says of Pryor, “she loved big. Her feelings were intense. You felt her affection instantly if she loved you, and she invested the same intensity into everything she did.
Speaking during Ashton’s burial service, a friend remarked, “she always had the biggest sunglasses in town and pulled them off somehow.” Ashton’s fashion was consistently summed up by the phrase, “behind the spectacles would be her dang eyelashes.” Continuing, Randi Jo said, “There were [false eyelashes] on her mattress, on her blanket, on her cosmetics stand, they’re everywhere, and that’s been our reminder lately that she’s with us. Those are her very tiny eyelashes.
Jamie and Brandon, Ashton’s parents, have expressed their gratitude for the overwhelming show of support and have claimed they wouldn’t be here without it. You can’t make it through this world without help. Her brilliant recollection shines a spotlight on each endeavor she undertakes. She adored the rhinestones, according to her older sister.
She was a huge fan of the western genre. All shades of pink were her favorite. To celebrate Ashton and all that she stood for, I picked up these caps for myself and Peyton to wear. The outlook was good for Ashton’s future. Already having committed to Indiana State, she was set to join her older sister Randi Jo on the Sycamores’ softball team.
