Miss Ashley Elizabeth Burger


Miss Ashley Elizabeth Burger, of Charlottesville, Va., passed away at Wareham, her parents’ home in Franktown, at the age of 41 on Saturday, July 28, 2018.

The daughter of Dr. Ray Edward Burger Jr. and Judith Frosch Burger, she was born Sept. 20, 1976, in Lexington, Ky. She was educated at Broadwater Academy, graduating in 1995, and Methodist University, graduating in 1999 with a degree in business administration and a concentration in professional golf management.

Miss Burger worked for 14 years at Farmington Country Club in Charlottesville, and more recently at Keswick Golf Club, and was beloved in the Charlottesville golfing community. She took great pride in remembering and addressing everyone by name.

Miss Burger developed her athletic prowess in high school, where she was tricaptain of the basketball team and honed her golf skills at Methodist University. An avid Virginia Cavaliers football, basketball and baseball fan, she frequently attended sporting events in Charlottesville.

Miss Burger battled cancer for 15 years and will always be remembered for her courage and refusal to complain. In January 2009, Virginia Golfer profiled Miss Burger as a pillar of strength whose spirit helped inspire others. She thought of others first and volunteered with Martha Jefferson Hospital’s Martha’s Market in support of women’s health care, until she was no longer able to do so.

Miss Burger is survived by her parents; brother, Ray Edward Burger III (wife Anna Bagwell Burger), of Onancock; nephews, Ray Edward Burger IV and Cecil Bagwell Burger; and brother, Hunter William Burger (wife Jenn Saunders Burger), of Franktown.

A graveside service was conducted at the Burger home on Wareham Farm on Aug. 1, 2018, with the Rev. C. Berkley Ford officiating.
