Ashlie Halvorson

June 26, 1987-Nov. 3, 2020

Ashlie Janeil Halvorson,

33, Minot, ND, went

home to be with Our Lord

on November 3rd, 2020.

She was a loving mother,

a devoted wife, and a

friend to many.

Ashlie Janeil Hogue was

welcomed into this world

on June 26th, 1987 in

King City, California by

her father, Randy Hogue

and her mother, Shelly

Hogue. While her father

was serving in the mili-

tary, Ashlie and her broth-

er, Justin, now 31, had the

great opportunity to see

the world. Randy packed

up his family and moved

to Williston, ND for two

years and then to Ger-

many where Ashlie start-

ed kindergarten at the age

of five. They later moved

to El Paso, Texas and then

settled in Minot, North

Dakota where they all still

call it home. Ashlie gra-

duated from Minot High

School in 2005.

Ashlie married early on

and welcomed two beauti-

ful boys of her own into

this world. Keagen

Schneider (12) and Reese

Schneider (9). Ashlie di-

vorced later on.

Ashlie had a great pas-

sion for helping others in

need along with showing

great compassion, as she

had a long-time career as

a CNA and CMA. Ashlie

started her career at Trini-

ty Homes and after only a

few short months of work-

ing there, she went on to

work at Minot Health and

Rehab (Manor Care) for a

little over 10 years. For a

short time after, she

worked home health care

with Beloved Hope Health

Care Inc. and at Souris

Valley Care Center. Ashlie

was working at Edgewood

Vista at the time she left

us. While working on the

front lines in health care

and contracting COVID,

it’s safe to say she died a

hometown hero.

While working at Minot

Health and Rehab she met

her future sister-in-law

and later was introduced

to the “man of her

dreams”. While joining

Eric George Halvorson in

marriage July 13, 2019,

she undoubtedly claimed

him as “the man she’s

proud to call her husband

and the love of her life.”

Although she left us far

too soon, the number of

dates, dances, and laughs

shared seemed to be

countless. And while hap-

pily married to her best

friend, she continued her

college education in an

accelerated bachelor’s to

master’s program at Pur-

due University to pursue

a career in counselling.

She had just graduated in

October of 2020.

Ashlie always seemed

to build never ending

friendships while working

and undeniably had a pas-

sion for helping and car-

ing for others while work-

ing in health care. Ex-

ercising was a must for

her along with eating

healthy. Ashlie loved to

dance carelessly and free-

ly no matter the time or

day. She also enjoyed

lounging around and

watching “The Office”

and “This is Us” with her

husband. She truly en-

joyed listening to music,

cooking for her family,

projects and activities

with her boys, having

bonfires, biking, attempt-

ing to camp, and enjoying

the great outdoors. She

was also a very proud

Auntie to her nephew Ay-


Ashlie attended Father
