Grand Lake Stream – Our dear beloved Ashley passed away unexpectedly on March 5, 2014 in Lebanon, NH.  She was born on May 13, 1984 in West Los Angeles, CA where she spent most of her life.  She was the daughter of Jerry and Pam Hamza.

 Ashley was brilliant, creative, very spiritual, gorgeous, had a caring heart, and was very talented in so many ways; writer, poet, artist, dancer, photographer, speaker.  She was on the Dean’s List in 1999 at Orme School in Mayer, AZ; on the Dean’s List in 2003 at Academy of Art University in San Francisco, CA; and she won a scholarship in 2013 to Colby-Sawyer College in New London, NH.  In her youth, Ashley won writing contests and received awards for playing basketball.  She loved basketball and was the short tenacious point guard among all the tall players.

 Ashley is survived by her parents, Jerry & Pam (Redd) Hamza (Grand Lake Stream, ME); three brothers: Nicolas Hamza (Ramona, CA), Alexander Hamza (New York, NY), Jerry (Mae) Hamza (Rochester, NY); and one sister, Lisa Hamza (Calais, ME).  She is also survived by her grandparents, Chester & Joyce Redd (Logan, UT), nieces, nephews, and many other relatives and friends.  Ashley, we love and miss you too too much!

 Fly away, beautiful baby, with the angels to peace.




There will be a short graveside service for Ashley at the Village Cemetery in Grand Lake Stream on July 11, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. with Father Rob Lupo officiating.

Thanks so much to all of our family and friends for the beautiful flowers; great goodies; thoughtful and kind cards and e-mails; and above all, your support, prayers, and love!
