Elizabeth Ashley Hoke Memorial Trust

Elizabeth was born on September 12, 1999 in Silverton, Oregon and spent her entire life living and loving her family’s farm. Elizabeth graduated Valedictorian from Silverton High School in June 2017 and was starting her college career at Western Oregon University focusing on her love for biology. She was a member of St. Paul’s Catholic Church in Silverton.

Elizabeth enjoyed reading, dancing, singing, spending time with both her family and friends. Her latest passions were drawing, photography and her senior year she played tennis at SHS. She had a true thirst for knowledge and knowing the world. Elizabeth started her travel journeys when she was very young, 6, seeing most of the United States, Italy, Spain, Mexico, and Canada. After graduating from Silverton high school, Elizabeth took a month long trip to Southeast Asia. She lived her dreams every day! Elizabeth had the kindest heart that spread joy to everyone she touched. Her smile brought warmth to all it shined on and her words were always filled with gratitude and kindness.

We tragically lost Elizabeth when she was killed in an automobile accident by a speeding, distracted driver while on her way to her first week of college.
