THE LATE Ms Minnie's mom says the tragic Little Women star called her after her fatal car crash.

Tammie Jackson relayed at the heartbreaking funeral her daughter "couldn't speak," but she was able to hear her breathing over the phone.

Ms. Minnie's mother, Tammie, told mourners Minni, who's real name was Ashley, was able to call her after the accident.

But she couldn't speak at the time and was only able to her breathing.

Tammie says it gives her "comfort" knowing her daughter was thinking of her in the final moments of her life.

Ashley’s funeral took place today at John P. Franklin Funeral Home.

A live stream was made available for loved ones and Little Women: Atlanta fans.

The service was also apparently filmed for the upcoming season of the reality show.

In the meantime, Little Women: Atlanta was “shut down” because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Minnie was killed after she collided with another vehicle head-on after losing control of her car.

The Georgia police department told The Sun: “The driver of the Nissan Sentra hit the right side curb, lost control of the vehicle, crossed into the north bound lanes of travel and struck a Ford Focus head on that was traveling north bound.”

Minnie was rushed to the hospital with “serious injuries,” but she passed away the following day on April 27.

The driver of the Ford Focus suffered minor injuries.

The investigation remains ongoing.

Ashley was an original cast member of the Lifetime series, which began airing in 2016.

A spokesperson for the show said: “She was the most beautiful, kind, giving, generous human ever.

"She was adored by cast and crew because she always wore her heart on her sleeve.

“There's nothing she wouldn't do for those she loved.”
