Friends, family mourn 'very lovely person' in Ahmann
Ellie Ahmann enjoyed life and she wasn’t shy about expressing it.
“You could hear her laugh a mile away,” said lifelong friend and fellow Woodbury resident Katie Pierson. “That was one of her defining features – her smile and her laugh.”
Pierson’s memories were among countless remembrances that swirled last week as friends and family members wrestled with news that Ahmann, 21, had died after her vehicle crashed into the Mississippi River.
