Therese Elizabeth (Robinson) Ashworth, “Tray” age 95, of Drexel Hill, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on December 11, 2023. She was born in Philadelphia to the late John and Mary Robinson. She is predeceased by her husband, Richard Ashworth, her daughter Margaret Rydesky, her sisters, Sr. Mary Rita Robinson, RSM and Sr. Catherine Agnes Robinson, IHM, her brothers, John (Clare) Robinson and Joseph Robinson.

Tray lived every day of her life grounded in faith, generosity, love and genuine kindness. She lived her faith humbly and authentically, quietly inspiring her family and friends.
