In Loving Memory of Ashley Kruiz

Ashley Kruiz

Ashley Kruiz

Ashley Kruiz, known as the “Sweetheart of the South” or “automatic, Kruzamatic”, was an entertainer who had roots in Kentucky and Atlanta, Georgia.   Originally from Frankfort, Kentucky, her first appearance in drag was about 30 miles southeast of her hometown at Café LMNOP in Lexington.  She had performed all over the country and been a part of many top show casts including “LaBoy LaFemme” in Louisville, Kentucky and “Charlie Brown’s Cabaret” in Atlanta.   In most recent years, Ashley had been seen at places like Stage Door in Tucker, Georgia and Burkharts in Atlanta.  Sadly we lost this amazing member of our community on Sunday, March 31, 2013.    Our heart goes out to all of Ashley’s family and friends during this time of mourning.
