Regina ‘Gina’ Marie Ashman, 59, beloved wife of Larry A. Ashman of Margaretville, went home to be with Jesus on Tuesday, July 3, 2012, after bravely battling an illness.
Regina was born on February 22, 1953, in Waltham, MA, to Alfred Francis Brown and Claudia Gertrude (Brosnihan) Brown, both deceased.
Regina graduated from Nashoba Regional High School. Shortly after graduation she married Larry, the boy she had loved since they were 10 years old, on October 30, 1971, in Stow, MA. They made their home in Massachusetts until 2000 when they moved to Margaretville to be near their grand-babies and enjoy the mountains.
She was a very active member of Catskill Mountain Christian Center, belonged to the Margaretville Fire Department Women’s Auxiliary and was employed by CVS Pharmacy and Mountainside Residential Care Center.
Her interests were the Bible, praying for anyone and everyone who asked, serving her local church and lovingly caring for her husband, children and grandchildren. She loved Jesus, playing cards with her mother-in-law, and visiting the ocean.
Regina is survived by her husband, Larry; their two daughters and spouses, Jessica and Paul Moore and Kathryn and Jason Coffin; and six grandchildren, Alexander, Luke, Will and Carley Moore and Jason Jr. and Victoria Coffin. She is also survived by her brother, Robert Featherston of Dracut, MA; her sister, Donna and Chet Jacobs of Stow, MA; and her mother-in-law, Claire Ashman of Hudson, MA. Regina also leaves behind 22 sisters and brothers-in-law; 29 nieces and nephews; 19 great-nieces and great-nephews, and countless friends, all of whom she loved well.
Calling hours were held on Thursday, July 5, at the Hynes Funeral Home, 48 Walnut St., Margaretville.
Funeral services were held on Friday, July 6, at Catskill Mountain Christian Center located at 629 Main St., Margaretville. Her Pastor, Robert Engelhardt, officiated.
