Whittley Ellexxus Ewing
March 09, 1993 ‒ February 18, 2021
Whittley Ellexxus Ewing, formerly of Ostrander who choose to be private about her illness entered into Heaven while surrounded by those whom she loved, Thursday, February 18, 2021.
She was born on March 9, 1993, in Westerville to Tony E. and Tyann J. (Scott) Ewing who survive in Richwood.
Beautiful inside and out, she was strong-willed, positive, and a fierce competitor throughout her young 27 years. She graduated from Buckeye Valley High School in 2011. Whittley first worked with the Ohio Liquor Control Commission, an endeavor she loved, and most recently worked with the State of Ohio’s Auditors office.
Following in her father’s footsteps at the age of 5, she began racing. She loved speed, the faster the better, and was a competitive racer in both quarter midgets and junior dragsters until illness prevented her from continuing. Whittley was proud of her racing career.
Always the fighter and risk-taker, she was dedicated to every cause and fiercely loyal. Hard-working, she was one who put the needs of others before her own. She loved all animals, especially her cat Leonard and attended Rock City Church.
Happiest driving fast, lifting weights and working out, or when surrounded with family who loved and knew her. She loved deep, her mom was her rock, her dad her heart, her brother her fun and joy.
In addition to her parents, she is also survived by her brother Tony “Beau” Ewing Jr. (Alivia Hughes) of Ashley, the love of her life Brooks Parsell, treasured best friends Katelyn Moore-Howell and Karrie Dickinson, paternal grandparents Georgia and Gary Ewing of Delaware, uncle William “Bubba” Ewing of Ostrander, aunt Sarah Ewing, uncle Torger Scott of Mansfield, and the extended Parsell family.
She was preceded in death by maternal grandparents Mary Able Scott and Thomas Scott.
The family is most grateful for the care provided by Samiar V. Parikh, MD, the OSU team of doctors and care providers who helped her through her medical challenges.
