Late reality star Ashley Ross’ life will be celebrated during an event streaming live to fans on Friday.
The Little Women: Atlanta star, known as Ms. Minnie, died following a hit-and-run accident on April 27. She was 34.
On Tuesday, Ross’ family announced they are hosting a memorial event at Olivet Baptist Church in Chattanooga, Tennessee, at 6 p.m. ET on Friday.
