Azia was born in Harrison, Arkansas, on October 29, 1976, to John and Linda (Micheletto) Lechtenberger. She grew up in Morenci, Arizona, and graduated from Morenci High School in 1995. She later went on to become a phlebotomist and most recently, she had successfully completed her pharmacy technician certification and was employed by Walgreens as a pharmacy technician.

On November 8, 1996, Azia married Christopher Ramirez. Christopher remained by her side at her passing.

She is survived by Christopher Ramirez; her daughters, Savannah Ramirez and Alyssa Ramirez; her parents, her sister, Alicia Lechtenberger, her nephews, Peyton Jividen and Jordan Tyler Lechtenberger. She is also survived by large extended family of uncles, aunts, cousins and a wonderful group of loving friends.

A spirited individual, Azia was known to spontaneously break into a dance move or silly pose, making those around her laugh. Gregarious and witty, she could make people laugh with a clever one-line comment. Dancing was one of her favorite pastimes and she would often grab those around her as dancing partners. Azia was a fun-loving person with a gorgeous smile that lit up a room. She has touched the lives of so many. We are all grateful to have been part of her life.
