MJ was predeceased by her parents Tracy and Mary Ashley, sister Hollis (D'Andrea), step-son Shane Lipe and the absolute love of her life, Darryl "Burt" Lipe, former owner of Morris’s Grill in Skaneateles.
MJ spent most of her professional career in the Auburn City and Cayuga County Court systems, a job she enjoyed until retiring to spend more time with her soulmate Burt. Whether on their boat or at the family’s cottage, MJ cherished being on Skaneateles Lake with Burt, their dog Shelby, and their countless friends. MJ also took great pride in having her sons’ friends spend time at their home and cottage making many lasting memories.
Calling hours will be held on Friday, January 15th from 4 to 6pm at Robert D. Gray Funeral Home, Skaneateles. Masks are required and limited entry into building at one time.
She will be missed by all who knew her.
