ASHEVILLE, N.C. — Jessica Crosby-Ciobanu, age 35, has left us this Monday, February 25, 2019.
She was born in Cadillac, Michigan, on July 24, 1983 and had spent much time up there as well as in the Tampa Bay area, Washington D.C. and Asheville, North Carolina. Jessica had a very loving and giving spirit that will always be remembered by her family and friends. She enjoyed social events as well as hosting family and friends at her home with her great cooking skills. She would always put a smile on the face of those around her and could enlighten the mood of anyone. She was a fantastic mother and gave her daughter many good morals and traits but most of all, she taught her to love and have compassion.

She is survived by her 6-year-old daughter, Sofia N. Ciobanu; father, Mike Crosby; brothers, Derek M. Crosby, Mike Crosby and Jason Vannortrick; sister, Shannon Crosby Secord; and husband, Andrei Ciobanu.
