Ava was born on June 20, 2015 the daughter of Mark and Julie (Ramshaw) Clobes.
Ava was known for her sweet smile that melted the hearts of everyone she met. Even though she couldn’t speak, her smile communicated her happiness and brought joy to everyone around her. Ava’s brothers and sisters looked forward to going into her room every day to say good morning and see her give a big smile in return. Her parents Sunday School class was often disrupted by everyone watching her grin instead of listening to the lesson. We could never know what she was thinking about, but that smile always made us feel like everything was going to be OK.
Her hobbies included looking at pretty lights attached to her crib and flashing her extra-long eyelashes.
Ava loved to be held and was being snuggled warmly in her mother’s arms when she passed away. Her family looks forward to seeing her run and hearing her voice when she again has a healthy body at the Resurrection, and we join her to praise our Savior for eternity.
