Bjerregaard, Ashley Ann

Obituary

Ashley was called up to serve the Lord on October 14, 2021. Friends, family and colleagues over the course of her life have observed her kind, considerate and generous spirit, and as such have suggested that the Lord will indeed put her to work as an Angel.

She was born in 1987 in New Jersey, relocating to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (which she considered her home town) and Michigan with her family. Ashley subsequently moved to Pennsylvania, Missouri, Colorado and Texas during the span of her human resources career. She was most recently employed with Cisco Systems.

Ashley’s naturally sweet disposition, and genuine interest in the lives of others generated deep trust from people during the course of her life. She was an active advocate in recognizing the unique contributions of others, and in fact exhibited these qualities in recognizing nursing and medical staff while courageously fighting a rare, highly aggressive form of cancer during the last year of her life. Professionally her success as a global human resource manager specializing in change and innovation was aided by these life perspectives, as well as a very strong strategic and analytical mind. Over and over again Ashley proved to be especially adept at influencing globally situated staff and executives on important issues and decisions.  She understood and fully represented the specific needs and cultures of her constituencies, always with an objective of positively enriching their lives.

Ashley was an academic scholarship-supported (magna cum laude) graduate of Clemson University, as well as the University of Illinois Graduate School of Labor and Employment Relations. In her personal life, Ashley was a dedicated runner and animal lover, who served as a volunteer in various shelters during the course of her life. Her three current pets were all adopted from shelters.

She met her husband Will at Clemson and their love grew and endured across the world as he served in the U.S. Army in Afghanistan and Germany while she launched her career in the United States. Ashley’s seemingly short life was filled with wonderful memories and is celebrated as a life very well lived.

She is survived by her beloved husband Will (William) Dalrymple, sister Caroline Bjerregaard, parents Wayne and Julia (Holland) Bjerregaard as well as many cousins, aunts and uncles. In addition to the superb nursing staff of Medical City Plano, the family would like to recognize the extraordinary and relentless efforts of Dr. Carlos Taboada, a special human being.

Donations in Ashley’s memory may be made to your local animal shelter.

Services will be private.

Please leave the family condolences and share memories on this website.

    I worked on the same team with Ashley at Cisco and miss her dearly. She is a beautiful soul inside and out and we got each other through a very stressful season at work. I could not be more proud to call her a colleague and a friend. My thoughts and prayers are with you all during this extremely difficult time.

    I worked closely with Ashley at Cisco and am sincerely sorry to hear of her passing. She was truly a friend, much more than a colleague, and I can attest to the deep trust and genuine rapport she built with others. We celebrated big career milestones and birthdays, and shared warm words about holiday and vacation plans (Ashley often seeing family or enjoying camping adventures with her husband). I’m honored and grateful to have known her and recognize the tremendously positive mark she has left on my life and on many around me. She will be deeply missed.

    “Time is not measured
    by the years that you live
    But by the deeds that you do
    and the joy that you give-
    And each day as it comes
    brings a chance to each one
    To love to the fullest,
    leaving nothing undone
    That would brighten the life
    or lighten the load
    Of some weary traveler
    lost on Life’s Road-
    So what does it matter
    how long we may live
    If as long as we live
    we unselfishly give.”

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
