Ashley Michelle (Adair) Loucks

Last Updated on December 17, 2022 by Kroeger Funeral Home

Surrounded by family, Ashley Michelle (Adair) Loucks, age 38, of rural Portland, Indiana, left this world on December 16, 2022, and gained her angel wings. She was a true warrior fighting cancer to the very end. Ashley was born on April 24,1984, and was the daughter of Kirby and Jeannie (Buttice) Adair. Since the day she was born, she has had the prettiest blue eyes.

 Ashley attended school in Logansport, Indiana, having graduated from Logansport High School in 2002. She was the vice president of her senior class and gradated as a distinguished scholar. She was a member of the National Honor Society, and staff instructor with Universal Cheerleaders Association (UCA). She was excited to be selected as an instructor and continued in that role for six years.

 Ashley headed to Bloomington in August of 2002 to attend Indiana University. She had always been a Hoosier fan but attending IU was a dream come true for her. Whether it was tailgating or waiting in line to get into Assembly Hall on game day, she would send a one-word text message to her family, “Red” and would expect a return message of “White”. She earned a Bachelor of Arts from IU in 2007. She worked in Bloomington for a short time after graduation as a property manager before moving to Indianapolis. While in Indy, she first worked at Scotty’s Brewhouse and then Key Bank. She also worked part-time at Indiana Elite Cheer and Tumbling in Noblesville. Besides being an IU Hoosier fan, she was a huge Green Bay Packer Fan sending her family her usual game day text of “Go Pack Go”. She was also a Cubs fan and was excited that she was able to see them finally win a World Series Championship!

 On October 27, 2012, at All Saints Catholic Church in Logansport, she married Erik Loucks. Following their marriage, they moved to Erik’s hometown of Portland, Indiana.

 Ashely has been employed by Varsity Sport since 2012. She was dual-branded and served as the State Director for UCA and NCA in both Indiana and Michigan. She has earned numerous awards including Rookie of the Year in sales, the coveted Eagle State Director award and Territory Goal Achievement award including the year 2022.

Her greatest joy however was being a mommy to two precious little boys. Ashley was the best mommy! She always had fun activities planned for them and they had a George Hat for every activity and holiday. She loved Christmas and may have gone a tad overboard when buying presents for them.

Surviving is her husband Erik, two sons Tanner Reece Loucks and Tucker Jackson Loucks, both at home; her parents, Kirby and Jeannie Adair of Logansport; brother, Matt Adair and his wife, Savannah of Logansport; father- and mother-in-law Ramon and LaVetha Loucks of Portland; and brother-in-law, Alex Loucks and his wife, Christi of Denver, CO.

Also surviving are uncles Mike Buttice and his wife Judy of Logansport, and Larry Buttice and his wife Laura of Orange, CA. aunts, Carol Roth (companion Mark Baker) of Monticello, Deb Adair of Lafayette, and uncle, Kim Adair of Royal Center; nieces, Phoenix Foster and Maylin Adair of Logansport. She is also survived by many cousins, and close family friends.

She was preceded in death by infant sister, Brittany Adair, maternal grandparents, Charles and Virginia Buttice, paternal grandparents, Kay and Janice Adair and Uncle Richard Roth.
