Whittley Ellexxus Ewing

March 09, 1993 ‒ February 18, 2021

Ostrander, Ohio

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.

A memorial gathering of friends and family will take place Saturday, February 27th from 4:30-6:30 p.m. at the Snyder-Rodman Funeral Center, 101 Valleyside Dr. at W. William St., Delaware, Ohio 43015.  Services will follow at 6:30 along with an opportunity to share how Whittley touched your life.

  • I am so saddened to hear this news. I didn’t really get a chance to know Whittley that well but I know she was a beautiful lady with such a kind and giving heart. She had one of the most beautiful smiles. My heart goes out to all of the family and friends. May she rest in peace.

  • I am so sorry for your loss of Whittley. I first met her in 2013 when we were working at Metro V in Dublin. We always joked around and had a good time. We often talked about and shared our love of fitness. In 2014 we started working together at Ignite Fitness and I approached her about doing a fitness show. Whittley had great potential and a strong will. She agreed to do the show along with Leslie Sutton. The girls put long hours of hard training into the gym and disciplined eating habits. Whittley and Leslie put in long hours of posing practice as well. Whittley was ready and so excited to do this fitness show. When Whittley got up on stage she rocked the house as if she had been there before. I couldn’t have been more proud. I always called her my fitness daughter. We had a great relationship with so many jokes and all of the hard training in the gym. I’m deeply saddened by this, it truly hurts my heart. Whitt was such a fine young lady. I gave her the nickname Snarf, another one of our jokes. I’m in utter shock but I know Whitt is in the arms of Jesus. I know she was a believer and follower of Christ. God Bless Your Family my heart and prayers are with you.

  • My condolences go out to the family, and all of my former students on the loss of Whitt. She was a treasure, and she will forever be in my heart.

  • Whitt always had such a positive energy about her, despite all she was going through. She impacted me as a healthcare provider in a way that is difficult to put into words but has left a lasting impact. I will always appreciate her quick wit, sincerity, and take-on-anything attitude. Tyann – thank you for your kindness and candidness throughout the process and for placing your trust in me and the team to play a small part in Whitt’s care. She was so special. My sincerest condolences to you and your family during this difficult time.

  • This is a tough one! I met Whittley when she worked at Ignite Fitness; I always hoped she would be at the front desk greeting me with her infectious smile. We would always chat about something going on in the world that day and if my mood wasn’t the greatest when I walked in, it was always so much better after I left that front desk. When Ignite closed we stayed in touch via social media and we always encouraged each other; if things weren’t going exactly as planned we were each other’s cheerleader, to push us to fight, to never give up. Whittley was a warrior! I admired her tenacity in the gym, and she made everyone around her a better person. The world has lost an amazing individual but heaven has gained the greatest of angels. To Whittley’s family, loved ones, friends, and acquaintances, I send you my sincerest condolences. The pain will be fierce, but her care, her compassion, her love will ALWAYS be within you. May God bless you.

  • I give my condolences to the family and friends of Whittley. I just heard the news and I am in total shock. I got to know Whittley at the Ohio Liquor Control Commission. She was always professional and just a wonderful person. I was sad when she left the Ohio Liquor Control Commission but also happy and wished her good luck at the Auditor’s office. Just a wonderful, wonderful young lady I will miss. I would try to say more but am speechless right now due to this news.

  • I send my deepest sympathy
    to Whittley’s family and especially Brooks. I met Whittley over a year ago she was my neighbor. Always a big smile on her face whenever I would see her. It’s funny we didn’t talk much but I truly felt close to her and always tried to watch over the both of them. Whittley truly touch my heart. I felt like I knew her forever and feel I am a better person just being around her. I will miss her smile and spirit.

  • Margo and I were so very sad to learn of Whittley’s passing. She faced so many great and constant struggles throughout her life, yet she leaves behind a legacy of strength, courage, joy, and hope. That legacy is there for her family and all who knew her.
    Our thoughts are with you.

  • I had the privilege of having Whittley as a student my first two years teaching at BVHS. At 14, she was wise beyond her years, witty, kind-hearted, and hard-working. Her smile was contagious and unforgettable. Whittley was always confident and had a way of saying what was on her mind in the nicest way possible. We connected because of her love for health and fitness. In getting to know Whittley, I can say that her love for her family was larger than life. She loved her Mom with all her heart. She was Daddy’s girl and her brother motivated her to always be an example. I was so proud to see Whittley’s success in the gym and in fitness competitions. What an inspiring young woman she was. She will always hold a special place in my heart.

    I send my deepest condolences to Ty, Tony, Beau and close loved ones of Whittley. My heart aches for you. You will be in my prayers today, tomorrow, and for many days ahead. Thank you to Ty and Tony for raising such a beautiful soul. Whittley made this world a better place. I believe that she was a reflection of you both. I hope you find some comfort in knowing that Whittley now knows what’s on the other side of heaven. She will be watching over you. I pray that God wraps you up in his arms and gives you peace and rest.
