Agriculture & Natural Resources

August 30, 2021

Dear All,

It is with great sadness that we pass on the news that Ashley Radde, our Ag and Natural Resources Agent and part of our family, has passed away Friday night due to complications with pneumonia.

Ashley’s parents would like to invite their family, friends, and prayer warriors to a visitation at Lakeshore Funeral Home in Waco on Thursday, September 9th, from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM.  They will also have a Celebration of Life service at Central United Methodist Church in Waco on Saturday, September 11th, at 4:00 PM. (We will also postpone our 4-H 101/Fun Day originally scheduled for September 11th to allow everyone to celebrate Ashley’s life and honor her memory).

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Axtell ISD Ashley Radde Memorial Scholarship Fund.

As you can imagine, this is a very difficult time for them, but they “are comforted in knowing that she touched so many lives with her huge personality, her bright smile and contagious laughter. We will all truly miss her but we know she is no longer in pain and that she is in the glorious presence of the Lord.

We ask that you please keep her parents, Angela and Bill, as well as the rest of their family in your prayers.   Please let us know if you need anything and know that our hearts and prayers are with Ashley, you all, and her family.
