Ashley ‘Minnie’ Ross, the star of Little Women: Atlanta, has been honoured during a live streamed memorial.
Minnie passed away after being involved in a head-on collision on a highway in Atlanta on 27 April, aged 34.
Her memorial was hosted on the website msminniemedia.com, with fans saying their final goodbye.
The ceremony was streamed so that loved ones in coronavirus-induced lockdown could participate.
Among those to speak was Minnie’s mother, Tammie.
‘When this happened, the accident, on 26 April, at 11:11 p.m., she managed to call me and I picked up the phone,’ she said.
‘She didn’t say anything, but I heard her breathing, and it gives me a little comfort knowing she was thinking about me.’
‘As the days went by, God told me, as much as you love Ashley, I love her more, and I need her home with me.’
Tammie also gave a shout out to Minnie’s costars, Amanda and Andrea Salinas.
‘Ashley loved you with all her heart,’ she said. ‘She became the mama bear to twin girls, Amanda and Andrea.
‘From day one… y’all were her world. Somebody mess with you, or looked at y’all crazy, she would be upset.’
Speaking to Metro.co.uk after her passing, a rep for Minnie said: ‘Ashley was a sweet and kind person with a big heart. She was an advocate for St Jude and young women. She will be remembered for her contagious smile.’
Minnie was a main cast member on the Lifetime series – a spin-off from Little Women: LA – since 2016, and had appeared in all five series.
It is believed Minnie has already filmed the sixth series, which has yet to air.
